A music video is a short film that integrates a song with imagery, and is produced for promotional or artistic purposes. Modern music videos are primarily made and used as a marketing device intended to promote the sale of music recordings. There are also cases where songs are used in tie-in marketing campaigns that allow them to become more than just a song. Tie-ins and merchandising can be used for toys or for food or other products. Although the origins of the music video date back to musical short films that first appeared in the 1920s, they again came into prominence in the 1980s when the channel MTV (originally “Music Television”) based their format around the medium. Prior to the 1980s, these kinds of videos were described by various terms including “illustrated song”, “filmed insert”, “promotional (promo) film”, “promotional clip”, “promotional video”, “song video”, “song clip” or “film clip”.
Music videos use a wide range of styles and contemporary video-making techniques, including animation, live action, documentary, and non-narrative approaches such as abstract film. Some music videos combine different styles with the music, such as animation and live action. Combining these styles and techniques has become more popular because of the variety for the audience. Many music videos interpret images and scenes from the song’s lyrics, while others take a more thematic approach. Other music videos may not have any concept, being merely a filmed version of the song’s live concert performance.

This list of most-liked YouTube videos contains the top 30 videos with the most likes of all time. The like count is taken directly from the page of the video itself. YouTube implemented a like and dislike button on these pages in March 2010, part of a major redesign of the site. This served as a replacement for their five-star rating system; YouTube’s designers found the previous system ineffective because the options to rate a video between two and four stars were rarely selected.The music video for LMFAO’s song “Party Rock Anthem” stood as the most liked video on YouTube in 2012, with 1.56 million likes, until the video for Psy’s “Gangnam Style” surpassed it in September that year, yielding more than 1.57 million likes. Following this accomplishment, “Gangnam Style” entered the Guinness World Records book as the most liked video on YouTube and on the Internet as of 2012. Psy’s video remained the most liked on YouTube for nearly four years until August 27, 2016, when Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” featuring Charlie Puth surpassed it with 11.21 million likes. Less than a year later, on July 25, 2017, Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” featuring Daddy Yankee claimed the top spot with 16.01 million likes. Currently, among the videos that meet the criteria for making the list, “Make This Video The Most Liked Video On Youtube” by MrBeast holds the highest like to dislike ratio.

YouTube implemented a like and dislike button on video pages in 2010 as part of a major site redesign.

Of the 50 videos in this list, 16 also appear in the list of most-viewed YouTube videos and 11 appear in the list of most-liked YouTube videos.

Friday amassed more than three million dislikes before the video was taken down in June 2011. The video was reinstated three months later and has not been taken down since.Measurement of dislikes on YouTube has been of academic and political interest. Following its immediate negative reception, Rick Perry’s 2012 presidential campaign advertisement Strong garnered over 600,000 dislikes within five days. This phenomenon was seen by Mike Barthel of The Village Voice as a reason not to judge entertainment and politics by the same standard of online publicity; he opined that the only time people are going to care more about politics than entertainment is when there is a clear and immediate threat to their well being.While music videos make up a majority of the most disliked uploads to YouTube, the trailer for the 2016 film Ghostbusters became the most disliked movie trailer on the site, with over one million dislikes. Some commentators saw this backlash as a concerted effort to vote the film down into obscurity. Along with the most disliked movie trailer, 2016 showed the most disliked video game trailer, Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, which stands at over three million dislikes. It became YouTube’s second most disliked video within two weeks of being released. PewDiePie achieved a video in the top 5 by specifically asking his own viewers to dislike his video.
