WATCH: ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Lyrics Replaced With Footballers’ Names Is Feckin’ Brilliant

James Fenton

There’s an awful lot of b*llocks filling up internet space these days, but there comes a time every now and then where you come across something remarkable.

Today is one of those days. ‘The Exploding Heads’ have enlightened what has been a miserable 2016 by releasing their amazing version of Queen’s epic Bohemian Rhapsody with the lyrics entirely replaced by the names of famous footballers. 

Of course, as another famous song once told us, Ireland are the greatest football team and we are well represented by Niall Quinn, Glenn Whelan and Paddy Kenny among others (#COYBIG).

An incredible feat and there are a number of stadiums and club names thrown in for good measure. 

Barry Horne, Barry Horne… Chris Dugarry… Juan Matas

What’s your favourite bit and more importantly how many famous names can you spot?
