This awesome shirt is for the iconic rock band Queen fronted by Freddie Mercury and also featuring Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon. The shirt features the band's name in front of a graphic of a butterfly flying past a sunset. Queen released their eponymous debut album in 1973 and made their first appearance on the UK charts the following year with Queen II. They had reached international success by the time they released their 1975 album A Night at the Opera which featured possibly their most well-known hit "Bohemian Rhapsody". By the late 70s and into the early 80s, the group had become on of the greatest stadium rock bands in the world. They released a number of hits including "We Will Rock You", "We Are the Champions", and "Another One Bites the Dust".
The band's iconic hit "Bohemian Rhapsody" was written by Mercury and based on a piece he had written during his time at Ealing College. When he first brought the song to record producer Roy Thomas Baker, Mercury played through the song on the piano only to stop and suddenly announce, "This is where the opera section comes in". The song wound up being the third best-selling single of all time in the UK, surpassed only by Band Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas" and Elton John's "Candle in the Wind".
Fits like a modern unisex adult small. The screenprint has some extra ink on it, see pics.
