Glee Joins Bohemian Rhapsody Hall of Fame

SPOILER ALERT! If you haven't watched last night's Glee season finale, "Journey," run away screaming now!

What was life like before Queen? What did you do at a baseball game before stomp-stomp-clap-ing to "We Will Rock You"? What song did you sing when your team won the championship before "We Are the Champions"? And how did our culture even exist before Fred Mercury and told us "any way the wind blows doesn't really matter to me"?!

Of all the iconic songs to come from Queen, "Bohemian Rhapsody" is certainly the most epic. Just look at the number of reincarnations that have come about since its 1992 release. Last night, Glee joined that list in epic form - villainous automatons Vocal Adrenaline took on the song at Regionals as Quinn finally gave birth to her baby girl. Featuring Jonathan Groff at his finest (at least on this show) and some incredible dancing (with several SYTYCD alums on the roster), it's no wonder this number cinched another victory for Vocal Adrenaline [sad face for New Directions]. I think it's safe to say we can induct Glee into the highly celebrated (and non-existent until today) BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY HALL OF FAME.

Beginning with last night and working all the way back to the 1992 original, here's a look back at best of Bohemian Rhapsody:

Glee:


The Muppets:


Weird Al Yankovic:


Wayne's World:


Queen:  


So what do you think? Did Glee earn its place? Are there versions missing that deserve to be inducted? Are you still having trouble coping with New Directions defeat? Sound off in the comments!
