There are a lot of contenders for the title of "greatest rock song of all time." There's "Smoke on the Water," by Deep Purple, which defined hard rock and is still played constantly. There's "Enter Sandman," by Metallica, which became one of the biggest hits in heavy metal history after it was released in 1991. And there's also "Paranoid Android" by Radiohead, which came out in 1997 and has been consistently ranked among Rolling Stone magazine's top 100 songs ever since then. But I think all these songs (and many more) can agree that there is only one true king when it comes to epic operatic masterpieces: Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody."
The epic operatic masterpiece was released in 1975, and continues to be the greatest rock song of all time.
The song was released in 1975 by British rock band Queen. It has become one of the most iconic songs in history and continues to be the greatest rock song of all time.

The six-minute song is considered an opera with its operatic style and lyrics about a man who has lost his lover and commits suicide.
