Proving themselves the Champions, Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” has once again hit the charts over 40 years from its release.
Thanks to the success surrounding the Queen/Freddie Mercury biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, their most infamous track has hit the Top 100 charts yet again. This marks the third time the song has hit the charts, and the third decade for it to do so. It originally hit the charts in ’76, then again in ’92 thanks to ‘Wayne’s World’. Now the track is back on the charts as a result of the movie’s success (thanks largely to Rami Malek’s spot-on portrayal of frontman Freddie). It’s a rare occurrence, previously achieved by only Prince’s “1999,” Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and a number of seasonal songs such as Christmas tracks, Billboard reported.
