The Queen + The Muppets Bohemian Rhapsody single is OUT NOW!

Original Press Release:

In the past week, the video for Queen + The Muppets’ version of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ has been viewed over a staggering nine and a half million on YouTube.

The video brings together two iconic pieces of pop culture: Queen’s rock-opera classic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and Jim Henson’s inimitable Muppets. It features all the hugely recognisable characters that defined an era of children’s television, and continue to be popular with each new generation; Miss Piggy, Kermit The Frog, Gonzo, Animal and many more.

Seen as a contender to X Factor for the Christmas no.1 spot, bookmaker Paddy Power said of the single:

“We’ve taken more bets on the Muppets to be Christmas No. 1 than anyone else so far, but with zillions of views already on YouTube it’s no surprise the punters are getting stuck in. Imagine, the mighty X Factor toppled by the Muppets! It’s great to have a competitive Christmas no. 1 race again!”

The momentum for the video has taken on a life of its own, with The One Show and Sky News having already shown it, plus The Sun tipping it as a Christmas Number 1 contender.

The single will be released as a Vingle (video of the single) and audio, both available through all Digital Service Providers.

The original version of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ appears on their ‘Absolute Greatest’ compilation, which has so far spent three weeks in the UK Top 10 Album Chart.

I wouldn't normally bother with xmas no.1 stuff, but this Muppets thing is totally worthy! Screw xfactor and personally, I ain't a fan of the rage single. So, MUPPETS!!!!

That's baby shit. Why should we go out and buy rubbish like that? I'd rather buy more old singles of the damn original. Jackie, you're getting high off of the scent of your vagina, again. Or Greg Brook's butthole. But either way, I'm not buying the damn muppet's remake of 'Bo Rhap'

Yeah, I've actually listened to a youtube vid with the radio interview they (RATM) did and it was excellent. I've actually bought both muppets and rage now as they're both good prices at Amazon. 79 and 29p, respectively :)

Im not happy that it has only come out on mp3 download as I hoped it would have been out on cd. Not impressed with that at all. Come on Queen and pull your finger out. Not all of us want a stupid mp3 player, but would rather the old fashioned way of putting a cd on!! Krissii
