Queen’s iconic music video for their 1975 hit “Bohemian Rhapsody” was confirmed as having been viewed one billion times on YouTube.

It’s the only video made before the ‘90s to have reached the milestone. Before the release of the Freddie Mercury biopic of the same name last year, the clip had been watched 666 million times since being posted in 2008, meaning that a third of the total views came after the movie.
