    60,000 fans sing 'Bohemian Rhapsody' while waiting for Green Day to play
    June 10, 2013

    Queen's Freddie Mercury died in 1991, but in 2013 he can still get 60,000 people singing along to "Bohemian Rhapsody."

    As fans waited for Green Day to take the stage at London's Emirates Stadium earlier this month, a video shot from the upper deck captures the crowd's enthusiastic sing-along of the 1975 hit.

    The highlight comes around the 2:00 mark as the guitar kicks in and thousands of concertgoers on the field in front of the stage begin pogoing. The group effort reaches its loudest point here:

    "So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye
    So you think you can love me and leave me to die
    Oh baby -- can't do this to me baby
    Just gotta get out -- just gotta get right outta here"

    Commenters on the YouTube page where the video is posted were caught up in the moment as well.

    "This makes me cry and smile so big at the same time. I love rock fans. Long live Queen!" wrote highlyillogical.

    "Humans are so cool," said becauseimabigdork.

Every track tells a story of experience and triumph. This is what the industry is missing. Vegas Conference

Two words: good design.  Simple and clean design and with a good attention to details.
