With over double the amount of views of its closest rival, South Korean musician Psy takes the title of the most viewed video on YouTube with his music video for the song Gangnam Style.

And for those of you who dont like the song, you can at least take solace in the fact that if it Gangnam Style didnt exist, then this article would be ending with Justin Bieber as number 1! Fun Fact The songs title Gangnam Style is a reference to the trendy, fashionable style of the residents living in Gangnam, an affluent area in South Koreas capital Seoul. In interviews Psy has liked this area to Californias Beverly Hills area.
