This week we head back to 1975 and the creation of what is, for many, Queen's greatest ever achievement – Bohemian Rhapsody. Lauded as one of the best songs ever written, the list of accolades for this extraordinary composition is endless. Delivering the band their first number one hit single, it went on to become the only song to it went on to become the only song to sell over a million copies on two occasions in the UK, is the most streamed song of the 20th Century, and in March 2021 reached the extremely rare RIAA Diamond status in the US – making Queen the first British band ever to earn such an award.

[Brian] To be honest we weren't too keen on going on Top of the Pops, and standing on those little podiums and kind of miming Bohemian Rhapsody. It would have been really crap.

And we could go on the road and that could be on Top of the Pops and we realised 'wow' you don't even have to be here to promote your record now. You know, you just make one of these little video films and that's got to be the way in the future, and we were the first to do that.
