About The Song
Bohemian Rhapsody was written by Freddie Mercury for the group Queen's album A Night at the Opera produced in 1975. It was a very popular song, one of their most popular. It's made up of 3 main segments: rock ballad that ends with an awesome guitar solo, opera, and heavy metal. So a chorus was not necessary.

After the death of Freddie Mercury in 1991 the song hit number one on the charts again for 5 weeks. Eventually becoming the UK's third best selling single of all time. In 1992 it was featured in the movie Wayne's World repopularizing it all over again in the USA.
