Almost a year on from reaching the same milestone with YouTube, Evanescence have just made it to Spotify’s Billions Club.

The band’s achievement is of course thanks to mega-hit Bring Me To Life, with the Fallen classic continuing to resonate with fans over 20 years on from its release. “We cannot thank you enough for joining us on our journey,” say Evanescence. “Incredibly grateful that Bring Me To Life has reached over 1 billion streams on Spotify.”

Speaking to Kerrang! in our November Cover Story celebrating two decade of Fallen, Amy Lee enthused that she “truly” still loves Bring Me To Life.

“It’s beautiful,” she said. “The progression in the beginning, the way the chord goes back and forth with just the middle note moving, that is so me. I always find myself coming back to that vibe. So, yes, I still love that song, the lyrics, all of it. The energy that the post-bridge rap brings is really special.

“I don’t so much love the ‘Wake me up!’ part on the chorus, but it doesn’t bug me anymore,” she added. “I guess it did once because it was like, ‘That’s not who we are!’ but I don’t feel, 20 years later, that I have to say that anymore. If there had actually been eight rap songs on Fallen, I don’t think I would have survived. I would have had to run away and rebrand!”
