Rollercoaster Rhapsody

Rollercoaster Rhapsody

Using only the 2002 video game RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 as their canvas, ChuggersRCT managed to create a thrill ride that syncs up perfectly with Queen’s masterful operatic track Bohemian Rhapsody. Sure, the “Galileo” death spiral bit would probably do you in, but you’d be going out in style.

Marc Martel: I Want To Break Free

Marc Martel: I Want To Break Free

As we’ve previously heard, Marc Martel is one of the only vocalists to ever hit the notes of Queen’s songs as well as Freddie Mercury himself. Here, he lays down an outstanding cover of a song that has a whole new meaning for anyone who’s been locked down in recent months. He also recently did a mean Elton John cover.

Another One’s Hot In Herre

Another One’s Hot In Herre

Bohemian Rhapsody on Bass

Bohemian Rhapsody on Bass

Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody is an incredibly challenging song to play when you have the proper instruments. To prove his bass-playing chops, musician Zander Zon managed to perform a compelling rendition entirely on his bass guitar. We’re amazed that he was able to extract such range from the 4-string instrument.

Rhapsody of Queen

Pianist Eshan Denipitiya presents a virtuosic medley of three classic Queen tracks performed flawlessly on the grand piano. He goes on to ask us which is our favorite, but can you really choose between Bohemian Rhapsody, We Are The Champions? and We Will Rock You?

Shallow Radio Ga Ga

Shallow Radio Ga Ga

Remix artist Entyme mashed up Queen’s 1984 stadium anthem Radio Ga Ga with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s Oscar-winning track from A Star Is Born, combining two epic tracks into one, then accompanied them with a completely nonsensical video.

Tesla Coil Rhapsody

Tesla Coil Rhapsody

There’s quite literally something electric in the air with this high voltage performance of Queen’s rock opera. Electronics wiz Fabrício H. Franzoli programmed a duo of solid state Tesla coils to “sing” a portion of the track. His take on Daft Punk is pretty awesome too.
