If one thousand people were asked to name their favorite drunken sing-a-long song, I’m sure that a good number of them would say Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Sure, you’d have plenty of “Don’t Stop Believen”s and “Livin on a Prayer”s thrown in there – but it’s hard to argue that Freddie Mercury’s baby is not somewhere on the best-of list.

Pulled my trigger, now he’s dead
But bonus points for the flawless guitar solo. How does he compare to the original? Watch and decide for yourself:
