Queens “Bohemian Rhapsody” is considered to be one of the most iconic songs every released by the group. The song itself has been interpreted to mean many different things. BBC America posted an article in which they tell us 10 things we did not know about “Bohemian Rhapsody.” In the article, Freddy Mercury states what he was thinking about when he created the “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

“‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ didn’t just come out of thin air. I did a bit of research, although it was tongue-in-cheek and it was a mock opera. Why not? I think people should just listen to it, think about it, and then make up their own minds as to what it says to them.”

A group on YouTube took Freddy Mercury’s words literally and made a video about what the “Bohemian Rhapsody” means to them.

The name of the YouTube account is Corridor and they turned the “Bohemian Rhapsody” into a crime drama.

The “Bohemian Rhapsody” video was published on YouTube six days ago and has since gone viral with a current total of 1,636,512 total views. The short video is absolutely fantastic. Corridor’s channel has over 4 million subscribers and they do a variety of short digital movies.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” is a song that spans the generation gap from when it was first released in 1975.

For the current generation that is 30 to 45 years old, the “Bohemian Rhapsody” will always be associated with Wayne’s World. Wayne’s World was an SNL spin-off that became a movie in 1992. During a scene in the movie, when they were driving, Wayne, played by Michael Myers, got into the car with his friends and decided that he was going to put in a tape of “Bohemian Rhapsody.” His counterpart, Garth, played by Dana Carvey thought that Wayne’s suggestion was an amazing idea.

The song does not start at the beginning. The group in the car begin singing along until they see one of their friends sitting on a bench. The friend joins the others in the car and the song continues while the group continues to sing along. As “Bohemian Rhapsody” gets to the iconic guitar riff, the group starts headbanging to it. It has become one of the most iconic scenes in movie history.

Back in the 90’s, when this movie came out, if you were in a car driving with your friends, and “Bohemian Rhapsody” came on, it was almost required to sing along and do the head banging during the iconic guitar riff. Even today adults can be seen reenacting the headbanging almost like it is a reflex.

The current generation will not associate “Bohemian Rhapsody” with Wayne’s World but with another movie that came close to making $1 billion. The movie is Suicide Squad.

Suicide Squad is a comic book movie from the DC Universe in which some of DC’s most iconic villains are forced to work together as a team in order to complete a top secret task in which normal humans are not able to accomplish. In the movie, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Slipknot, and Harley Quinn were some of the main villains. The Joker is also in the movie, attempting to reunite with Harley Quinn.

During one of their trailers, “Bohemian Rhapsody” was used. Warner Brothers synced up the song perfectly to scenes in the movie. Even the bullets flying synced up perfectly to the beat of the song. It is absolutely beautiful. The trailer on YouTube has over 78 million views.
