Queen’s 1975 single “Bohemian Rhapsody” re-entered the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for a third time this week. This marks three separate decades that the classic song has climbed onto the charts. This rare occurrence was previously achieved by only Prince’s “1999,” Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and a number of seasonal songs and Christmas tracks, according to Billboard. “Bohemian Rhapsody,” was featured on Queen’s fourth album A Night at the Opera, and was first released in October 1975. It reached No. 9 in 1976, and peaked at No. 2 after the released of the movie, Wayne’s World, in 1992. Now with the release and huge success of the movie Bohemian Rhapsody, it has sent the soundtrack album to No. 3, Queen’s highest chart position since 1980. Bohemian Rhapsody is currently playing in theaters now.
