Queen were a British rock band that formed in London in 1970. Their classic line-up was Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (lead guitar, vocals), Roger Taylor (drums, vocals), and John Deacon (bass guitar). Queen’s earliest works were influenced by progressive rock, hard rock and heavy metal, but the band gradually ventured into more conventional and radio-friendly works by incorporating further styles, such as arena rock and pop rock, into their music.

A Night at the Opera is the band’s fourth studio album. At the time of its release, A Night at the Opera was the most expensive album ever recorded. Upon release, the album was a commercial success, debuting at No. 1 in the UK and topping the charts for four non-consecutive weeks. In the US, it reached No. 4, the band’s strongest showing at that time. In 1977 “Bohemian Rhapsody” received two Grammy Award nominations for Best Pop Vocal Performance by a Duo, Group or Chorus and Best Arrangement for Voices.

Fun Fact

Brian May and Roger Taylor were playing in the band Smile alongside Tim Staffell. But Tim wasn’t so interested, so recommended his flatmate Farrokh Bulsara. Farrokh became known to the world as Freddie Mercury. Smile became known to the world as Queen.
