In early 2012, British television station ITV carried out a nationwide poll to find ‘The Nation’s Favourite Number One’ over 60 years of music. Bohemian Rhapsody» came out on top, but did Freddie Mercury ‘come out’ in the song? The New York Times said «the song’s most distinct feature is the fatalistic lyrics», though Freddie never explicitly said what they were about.
