Foo Fighters' 1997 track "Everlong" and Aerosmith's 1973 track "Dream On" are two of the latest songs to hit one billion streams on Spotify. This equates to roughly three dollars (give or take) in royalties, so shout out to whoever in the band got to go get themselves a coffee with those checks.
"Everlong" was released as a single in August 1997 and was featured on Foo Fighters' album The Colour And The Shape. "Everlong" hit number three on the US Billboard Alternative Songs chart and the Canadian RPM Rock/Alternative chart upon its release and has since made appearances in games like Rock Band 2, Rock Band Unplugged, Guitar Hero World Tour, and Rocksmith 2014. The song has since sold over 2 million units in the United States alone, and over 1.2 million in the United Kingdom.
Aerosmith's "Dream On" was released in 1973 as a part of the band's self-titled debut album, and peaked at number 59 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song has moved over 4 million units in the United States and somehow beat "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" as the band's first song to hit 1 billion streams on Spotify.
