    From 1973 to 1991, Queen recorded fourteen albums. Made in Heaven, the fifteenth, is made with vocal parts of Freddie Mercury recorded before his death. Band of all records, Queen spent a total of 1,422 weeks on the UK charts, more than The Beatles and Elvis Presley. The Greatest Hits compilation also sold over six millions copies and remains the best-selling record in the UK and Ireland. Introduced to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, featured on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Queen has won numerous awards throughout its career. The film Bohemian Rhapsody, released in 2018, tells the story of the group by taking great liberties.

    Another unusual fact: Queen is also one of the most educated bands in history. Brian May studied astrophysics and received his doctorate in 2007, Freddie Mercury, to whom the combo owes his logo, studied design and fashion, John Deacon is an electronics engineer and Roger Taylor studied biology.
