This October 31st, there are many things to love – it’s Halloween, the New York Mets are in the World Series, the weather is unseasonably cooperative…

But today marks another occasion as well – the 40th anniversary of the rock classic, Bohemian Rhapsody.

Topping the charts┬ánot once, but twice (party on, Wayne) in it’s storied history, the Queen staple has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, and has sold over 6.5 million copies.

Not bad for a 6 minute operatic rock song that introduced the world to Scaramouche and Galileo Figaro.
