Queen are a British rock band, whose classic line-up consisted of vocalist and pianist Freddie Mercury, guitarist Brian May, drummer Roger Taylor and bassist John Deacon. Founded in 1970, Queen released their self-titled debut album in 1973. Despite not being an immediate success, Queen gained popularity in Britain with their second album Queen II in 1974. Their 1975 single, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, was No. 1 in the UK charts for nine weeks (and a further five weeks in 1991, after Mercury’s death) and is the third biggest-selling single of all time in the UK. In the US, “Bohemian Rhapsody” hit the Billboard Top 40 charts in three different decades, reaching No. 9 on its original release in 1975, No. 2 in 1992 after being featured in the film Wayne’s World, and hitting the Top 40 once more in 2018 upon the release of the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. The 1981 compilation Greatest Hits is the biggest-selling album in UK history, with 6.0 million copies sold by 2014. The 1991 compilation Greatest Hits II is also one of the UK’s top ten biggest-sellers of all time, with 3.8 million copies sold by 2012.
In 2012, Queen were ranked as being the seventh biggest-selling singles artist in United Kingdom with 12.6 million singles sold. In a time period stretching from 1991 up to October 1995, Queen sold five million copies in Italy alone.
