Rick has rolled his way into the history books by joining YouTube’s Billion Views Club.

The official video for Rick Astley’s 1987 hit ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ surpassed the billion lifetime views on Wednesday – it was uploaded only 12 years ago.

It joins only three other videos from the ’80s which have also racked up a billion views:

  • ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine’ by Guns N’ Roses
  • ‘Take on Me’ by A-ha
  • ‘Billie Jean’ by Michael Jackson
