"A Day at the Races" is the fifth album released by Queen in 1976. It serves as a companion to Queen's previous album, "A Night at the Opera." Both records take their names from Marx Brothers films and have similar eclectic musical themes.
Queen is a world-known British rock band that formed in the 1970s. They took the world by storm with their hit songs "We Are the Champions", "We Will Rock You", and "Bohemian Rhapsody". Queen was most known for their lively and charismatic performances, but especially their volume. They toured for many years until the tragic death of their lead singer Freddie Mercury. He died in the AIDS epidemic in 1991 and was one of the first publically out LGBTQ+ artists of that time period.
