'Bohemian Rhapsody' Named Most Streamed 20th Century Song


Queen

A few months after the release of the massively successful biopic of the same name, Queen’s signature song ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ has been named the most streamed track of the 20th century.

The song, from the band's album A Night At The Opera and which reached no.1 in the UK upon its original release in 1975, and hit the top of the charts again in 1991 in the aftermath of lead singer Freddie Mercury’s death, has been streamed more than 1.6 billion times across all platforms, including Spotify and YouTube.

As such, it’s overtaken classics like Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ and Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ to take the number one spot in Spotify’s list of the 20th century’s most streamed songs. Those two tracks are in second and third respectively, with the Gunners’ ‘November Rain’ taking the fourth spot and a-Ha’s pop classic ‘Take On Me’ finishing off the top five.

Rami Malek Defends 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Over Criticisms About 'Erasing' Freddie Mercury's Sexuality


Rami Malek Queen

Rami Malek, the lead star of the forthcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, has hit back at critics who have complained that the movie might be about to shy away from discussing frontman Freddie Mercury’s sexuality and AIDS battle.

37 year old Malek, the former star of ‘Mr. Robot’, plays the part of Mercury in the film, whose first trailers dropped earlier this year. However, some onlookers were disappointed that the trailer made no references to the singer’s bisexuality or illness - but did show Mercury in a romantic exchange with a woman.

Now, Malek has spoken out about the controversy in a new interview with Attitude magazine, saying that judging an entire film by its trailer is unfair.

7 Times Politicians Tried To Use Pop Songs Without Permission


Donald Trump Bruce Springsteen Queen Abba Johnny Marr REM Calvin Harris James

After Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler had to write a second cease-and-desist letter to Donald Trump asking him to stop playing their songs during his rallies this week – having already called him out for doing the same with ‘Dream On’ three years ago – we thought we’d compile some other famous moments when politicians got scolded by musicians for using their songs without permission.

Almost inevitably, such clashes come up when songs are used by right-wing or conservative parties and candidates. Musicians are a fairly liberal bunch, understandably, and they don’t want their messages and sentiments getting confused with those counter to their own beliefs and ideologies.

So, here’s seven other famous moments when politicians tried to get some credibility off pop stars.
