An iconic song sung by an iconic band and over 40 years later, it’s still bringing thousands together. American punk rock band Green Day posted a video from a concert in London, England earlier this month that is making many on the Internet very happy. In the video, a stadium full of Green Day fans sing along in near perfect unison to Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’ The nearly 6-minute long video has already been watched well over four million times on YouTube.
The video, shot from a camera placed on stage, shows thousands of fans singing along to the 1975 hit song. The song was being played as Green Day prepared to hit the stage for a concert in Hyde Park on July 1. The band posted the video on its official YouTube channel.

Queen took to Twitter to share the video and thank Green Day fans:

“The world is falling apart, everyone hates everyone else…. but sometimes…. it just takes one song to unite the masses,” writes one person on YouTube. “Me seeing this video: ‘Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?'” jokes another.
