Queen's six minute-plus opus "Bohemian Rhapsody" is officially in the record books as the most streamed song of the twentieth century!

The song has gathered over 1.6 billion streams in the years since music streaming services have been around, according to Universal Music Group which tallied the numbers from Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer and YouTube.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" is also the most-streamed classic rock song of all time, according to Universal, beating out Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," G'N'R's "Sweet Child O'Mine," and A-ha’s "Take On Me."

The track surely got a boost with this year's release of the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody as well as their 2017-2018 tour with Adam Lambert filling the band's front man shoes and introducing their music to newer, younger fans.
