Is this The Real Life? Is this just Fantasy…? Managing editor BUST Emily Rems, defends the Honor of Bohemian Rhapsody on NPR's Soundcheck Smackdown!

Our lovely Emily Rems, joined by Entertainment Weekly editor-in-large Ken Tucker and Queen biographer Mark Blake debate whether Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" is ingenious… or just indulgent on  NPR's Soundcheck Smackdown.

I personally think this song is inspirational, beautiful, the perfect song to wail along with while vaguely intoxicated on public transportation, (when you don't care that people are staring atchoo.) If it's good enough for Garth and Wayne, it's good enough for me!

What are your thoughts? Do you think this Epic Rock Ballad is groovy or poopy? Let us know!
