Queen’s iconic Bohemian Rhapsody was named Classic Single, tying in with the 40th anniversary of the song, originally released on October 31 1975.
Matt Mason, senior editor of Q magazine, said: “With very different ideas and innovations, Gary Numan, Tony Iommi, Queen, New Order, Duran Duran, Soul II Soul, Mark Ronson and Noel Gallagher have all achieved the same result: radically re-defining the musical and cultural landscape.
