YouTube’s 10th Anniversary: Top 10 All-Time Videos

The video-sharing website that we know as YouTube is celebrating its 10th anniversary this February. Three former PayPal employees created the service in 2005 and then sold it to Google in November of 2006 for $1.65 billion. With such an important anniversary, we should probably look back and reflect on the top 10 most viewed YouTube videos of all-time.

The one big disappointment of this list is that there is only one viral video on the list. The old-timers complain that MTV doesn’t play music videos anymore but apparently all you need to do is go to YouTube.

10. PSY – GENTLEMAN M/V – 797,135,527 views

9. Katy Perry – Roar (Official) – 802,150,137 views

8. Shakira – Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) (The Official 2010 FIFA World Cup™ Song) – 807,186,265 views
