Wayne’s World – Classic Rock Pick of the Week
OK, Wayne's World is not a Classic Rock song or artist. It'a movie. You know that. But it's full of Classic Rock tunes and it's got an anniversary today.
On this day in 1992, the movie hit the theatres in the U.S. It's one of those movies you either like or hate. Personally, I loved it. C'mon, the movie had Tia Carrere. I paused the VCR alot during her scenes.
Anyway, that movie brought back life to Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, which became a huge hit at high school dances. Several famous actors and musicians starred in the movie, including Dana Carvey, Mike Myers, Alice Cooper, Meatloaf, Rob Lowe, Ed O'Neill, Chris Farley, Brian Doyle-Murray among others.
In addition to Bohemian Rhapsody, the movie soundtrack includes Ballroom Blitz, School's Out, Dream Weaver and I'm Eighteen.
For this week's Classic Rock Pick, let's look back at the song Bohemian Rhapsody, the Wayne's World version.
