'Wayne's World' Using 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Comforted A Dying Freddie Mercury

- Page 1

It's impossible to overstate just how much of an impact that Queen had not just on rock and roll, but on the history of modern music as we know it. From 1970 to the early 90s, they were one of the biggest names in rock music, delivering best-selling album after best-selling album, with hit after hit receiving hours of radio play.

Even if Queen isn't your favorite band of all time (for some reason), chances are they have a song that's managed to find its way into your collection, and ultimately your heart. Whether it's the anthemic stomp of "We Will Rock You," the giddy weirdness of "Bicycle Race," the rocking pace of "Fat-Bottomed Girls" (my personal favorite), or the sheer grandeur of "We Are The Champions," the band had something for everyone.

Of course, the near-universal favorite of their songs is "Bohemian Rhapsody," a sprawling epic that, while we're still trying to figure out what the hell it even means to this day, we all can't help but sing along with whenever it comes on.

This phenomenon around the song is probably best remembered from one of the funniest scenes of the 1992 comedy Wayne's World, where Wayne and Garth drive along singing the song as loudly as possible. It's a scene that everybody loves, and apparently that even included Freddie Mercury himself, even as he was bedridden while dying of AIDS...

Curse Of 'The Mummy' - How The Classic Film Nearly Wiped Out Its Cast

If any movie proves that "they just don't make 'em like they used to," it's The Mummy.That's the The Mummy - as in the box office smash of 1999, to avoid any confusion with certain other films bearing the same name.The mystical adventure had action, laughs, and special effects that look amazing to this day - and they should, because they cost $150,000 per shot.While The Mummy gave audiences chills, making the movie was just as frightening for its cast.

I've Only Just Realized All Disney Princesses Are Missing A Body Part And I'm Bothered

During my childhood, there was never a moment I didn't wish I was a Disney princess.
