After a trio of terrific albums, Queen were still a cult act seeking some semblance of international recognition. "Killer Queen" had been a huge hit (pushing the LP Sheer Heart Attack up the charts), but the band had little to show for it. Scheduled to enter the studio once more, the guys were convinced they could make a smash hit, if only someone would let them. Yet they were deeply in debt, and had very little to show financially for their past efforts. Angered by the management he felt stole from them outright, lead singer Freddie Mercury vented his rage into a clipped keyboard raga that summed up the group's music business bilking. The tune, "Death On Two Legs", was the initial volley in what would eventually become A Night at the Opera, a masterwork of mixed musical ideas all channeled through Queen's own creative conceptualization. Touching on almost every aspect of popular songstyling, from musical hall to metal, pure pop perfection to odd anarchic opuses, Mercury, along with guitarist Brian May, bassist John Deacon and drummer Roger Taylor finally had a calling card upon which to conquer the world. And thanks to the albums most famous song, the operatic oddity "Bohemian Rhapsody", the days of languishing outside the limelight were over.
