1 min read

Todays song is Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.

On Feb 14, 1992 Wayne’s World premiered in the US. Based on a popular Saturday Night Live sketch by Mike Myers and Dana Carvey, the film featured many memorable musical moments, including cameos by Meat Loaf and Alice Cooper. In one of the film’s most iconic moments, the lead characters headbang in a car to “Bohemian Rhapsody” – a scene which was approved of by Queen frontman Freddie Mercury before his death. The Wayne’s World soundtrack topped the Billboard 200 and introduced “Bohemian Rhapsody” to a new generation of fans, propelling the 1975 song back up the charts.

The film propelled the song to No.2 on the US singles charts nearly 20 years after its first release.
