Bohemian-Rhapsody-Cover.pngHeya folks. I am going to switch things around in this Sing-Off today. Normally I try to pop these out on Thursdays, but last week my day was taken up by making food for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. And why should I have to follow a strict set of rules anyway?

Today's inspiration comes from the news that Queen's Freddie Mercury will soon be resurrected for artistic purposes. I still am deciding how I feel about that.

Either way, I have A Night at the Opera spinning on my record player and am reminded of how freaking great this album is, especially Mercury's masterpiece, "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Join me in exploring the many covers and reinterpretations of the albums best song after the jump. I can't really ask who sings it best (because one of the greatest is a lip sync), so I will go with who rocks it best? Check it out after the jump and let me know.
