YouTube's Biggest Aussie Videos: It's All About Music Again

YouTube is pumping out a bunch of data to celebrate its fifth anniversary this week. The most striking? The most popular YouTube videos for Australia over that time, which demonstrate yet again that we like music videos in general and AC/DC in particular, even if we don't always follow global trends.

This is the official list sent from YouTube's PR — oddly enough, quite a few of these links result in a "video removed due to copyright violation" message, at least on my connection (though as I'm in the US right now, that might alter matters with some videos).

1. Free Hugs campaign(57 million views globally)
2. Aerosmith - I don’t wanna miss a thing(56 million views globally)
3. ACDC Thunderstruck(33 million views globally)
4. eBay, Weird Al Yankovic(26 million views globally)
5. Snuggle Bunny, Cutie(26 million views globally)
6. Katie Perry, I kissed a girl (24 million views globally)
7. ACDC Back in Black(23 million views globally)
8. How to fake a six pack, communitychannel (20 million views globally)
9. Dramatic Look (20 million views globally)
10. Monster Shark(18 million views globally)
