The new movie “Bohemian Rhapsody” depicts the real story of legendary British rock band Queen and its frontman Freddie Mercury. In the film, Queen’s record label initially resisted releasing “Bohemian Rhapsody" as a single. An EMI executive says he doesn't understand the song and thought that six minutes was too long for a track on the radio. TheWrap reports that the incident did occur in real life. According to Lesley-Ann Jones’ biography “Mercury,” “EMI and the industry in general voiced misgivings. Radio stations wondered what the hell they were supposed to do with a six-minute single. Even bassist John Deacon expressed his fears, albeit in private."
