The Story:

Bohemaian Rhapsody was Queen's trademark song. At nearly six minutes long, EMI originally refused to release it.
However, after Freddie got it played on the air, the public demand was simply too great, and a single was issued.
"Bohamian Rhapsody" became Queen's first #1 hit. In addition to the UK, the song made it to the top of the charts
in countries such as Australia, Holland, and New Zealand. It was also the band's first song to go top ten in the US.
