The British rock band, Queen consisted of four founding members that began it all in 1971. Influenced by progressive rock the band followed along that type of genre and became successful in the U.K, but they began to game fame in the United States as well.
On June 3rd 1976, Queen’s song “Bohemian Rhapsody” goes gold, meaning over 1 million copies sold. This single stated on top charts all over the world for weeks. Especially in the U.K it stayed as #1 for nine weeks.
It was written by Freddie Mercury and it was different than other songs because it had no specific chorus, but instead different sections. The song consisted of a ballad, opera section and a hard rock part and this is one of the factors that made it so unique and helped it attain such high success.
