Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" used to be the top streaming song from the 20th century, but Queen is having an incredible year!
Fueled by the success of the movie, Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen's rock anthem of the same name is now a champion. Today, Universal Music Group (UMG) announced the song is officially the most-streamed track from the 20th century, achieving more than 1.6 billion global streams.
It also makes it the most-streamed classic rock song of all time, edging out Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," Guns N' Roses "Sweet Child O'Mine" and "November Rain" and A-Ha's "Take on Me" in both categories.
Queen guitarist Brian May said in a statement, "So the River of Rock Music has metamorphosed into streams! Very happy that our music is still flowing to the max!"
Freddie Mercury is a Rock God!
