Bohemian Rhapsody Covers

Cover Wars: Bohemian Rhapsody Edition

This rock epic was originally released in 1975 on the Queen Album A Night At The Opera. According to, the album was the most expensive rock record ever made at the time. They also have this to say…

The first single from the record, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” became Queen’s signature song, and with its bombastic, mock-operatic structure punctuated by heavy metal riffing, it encapsulates their music. It also is the symbol for their musical excesses — the song took three weeks to record, and there were so many vocal overdubs on the record that it was possible see through the tape at certain points. To support “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Queen shot one of the first conceptual music videos, and the gamble paid off as the single spent nine weeks at number one in the England, breaking the record for the longest run at number one.
