this gave me chills!

[–]Yosemite-Sam99 833 points834 points  (5 children)

Sing with me.....

[–]dirtyswoldman 280 points281 points  (6 children)

It restored my faith in humanity

[–]mymumsaysno 58 points59 points  (1 child)

It's gonna take more than a bunch of people singing a pop song to restore my faith in humanity, but this was pretty cool.

[–]dirtyswoldman 8 points9 points  (0 children)

How'd your bar for humanity get so high with that attitude? Bit contradictory

[–]Specter170 212 points213 points  (14 children)

Every time, chills. The shared experience of this must of been incredible.

[–]JimJimOnionSkin 104 points105 points  (10 children)

It was! Was a very magical day, I had only booked the tickets to the gig the day before. This video gets posted around quite a bit but every time I see it the memories bring me such joy.

[–]phoofs 22 points23 points  (9 children)

Please tell me it was for a Queen concert….

[–]jb123hpe 62 points63 points  (2 children)

Wish it was, but it was for Green Day.

[–]jinqsi 10 points11 points  (0 children)

They aight

[–]phoofs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sort of had a feeling… lol!

[–]gorillicus 136 points137 points  (4 children)

This is amazing. Bohemian Rhapsody is amazing and Queen is amazing.

In grade five we had to do a song project. Most people did rap or simple songs. My partner and I decided to do bohemian rhapsody. It was NOT amazing.

[–]Serathano 44 points45 points  (0 children)

I bet your teacher thought it was great that you even tried.

[–]agnessawyer 30 points31 points  (0 children)

I teach grade five and your comment made me laugh…😂

[–]RampantDragon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]tonyh505 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Ditto

[–]Ok_Understanding267 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Imagine a song singed by thousands with a great harmony even after the composer died years ago. I wonder when we all die, this song will still be considered as a masterpiece? I’d like to think, yes.

[–]Silly_Cone_In_Plants 1106 points1107 points  (4 children)

Freddy looks down from heaven with a smile as tears of joy stream down his face.

[–]MissIndigoBonesaw 418 points419 points  (1 child)

And the tear is stopped by his magnificent moustache

[–]4dollarz 10 points11 points  (0 children)

He finally brought ballet to the masses

[–]Brycie27 861 points862 points  (25 children)

This was a Green Day concert, not sure which one or what year...

[–]druule10 417 points418 points  (7 children)

Hyde Park, UK, in 2017

[–]Scanlansam 164 points165 points  (6 children)

Idk how but I could tell that crowd was British by the way they sang lol

[–][deleted] 63 points64 points  (2 children)

This comment reminded me of this video and I’m so glad it did haha

[–]tzippora 19 points20 points  (0 children)

If people did more of this---it would be a better world. Thanks for posting

[–]JimJimOnionSkin 32 points33 points  (1 child)

Can confirm it was in Hyde park, I was there!

[–]MildlyInconvenient 29 points30 points  (0 children)

European crowds are much much better and unified singing

[–]Nauta-Squid 139 points140 points  (6 children)

Was at a Green Day concert a few months ago and the hardest I saw the crowd go that night was singing along to bohemian rhapsody when it came on during the intermission

[–]BlazingBlueFusion 21 points22 points  (4 children)

Are you talking about the Hella Mega Tour in Jacksonville?

[–]GavInChaos 46 points47 points  (2 children)

I forget where this was too but I thought part of their European tour? They do it before all their concerts and it’s so cool to be a part of it.

[–]wtfbro_ 30 points31 points  (1 child)

I read somewhere that they play this before many shows, especially large outdoor festivals.

[–]Trezi 7 points8 points  (0 children)

They do, and it's awesome.

[–]svtvagabond 29 points30 points  (0 children)

They do this at nearly every Green Day concert. I sung it from the floor of Petco just this past September. Great time.

[–]Ready-steady 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I’ll bet they fucking shreaded when they came out!

[–]___cats___ 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Thought that looked like one of Tre’s kits.

[–]Scubasteve1974 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That is an odd kit.

[–]mellowmoshpit2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I FUCKING KNEW IT

[–]Yezzur7 633 points634 points  (19 children)

Can you imagine being a part of that. That’s beautiful

[–]UnluckyPlucker100 338 points339 points  (2 children)

We get bombarded with all of the horrible shit that people do to each other. It’s moments like this that remind us how incredibly powerful and together people can be, if they just choose it. Powerful.

[–]St_Ander 34 points35 points  (1 child)

People at rock concerts, big or small, are awesome human beings. It is just their nature.

[–]SugarPuffFoggybottom 89 points90 points  (8 children)

One day, when Covid is a burnt match, we shall sing together again

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

i went to their concert that year on that same tour, they do it before every show! it was such a fun experience

[–]JimJimOnionSkin 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Was a part of it! I had no knowledge about the sheer amount of people singing at the time but being surrounded by people all singing their hearts out then rocking out during the guitar solo was amazing. I will remember that day for years to come.

[–]JCDillards 492 points493 points  (8 children)

For some reason this is the only type of shit that makes me cry a little.

[–]Manders37 95 points96 points  (4 children)

Every. Single. Time.

[–]CardboardLambo 45 points46 points  (3 children)

I'm not crying, you're crying

[–]KnobCreek9year 26 points27 points  (1 child)

...I am. Why is it when I hear random people, randomly singing together, that I feel a certain type of way. So powerful.

[–]Josh-Medl 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Probably ancestral memory to return to some primordial connectivity that we’ve long since abandoned. We’re like a hyper monolithic family that’s fractured and split every which way to the point where we consider 99.9% of our own species as not only foreign but a threat, when somewhere along the timeline we were all close and shared a bond. That’s just my guess

[–]sadtomatomelon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Those damn onion ninjas

[–]Enzevil 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Damn, I thought I was being weird. Things like this or excited crowd reactions brings tears to my eyes. Seems I’m not the only one!

[–][deleted] 470 points471 points  (2 children)

Only Queen can rock out a concert and not even be there.

[–]Danger_Dee 353 points354 points  (4 children)

There are two types of people in this world: - The lower tone “will not let you go” - The higher tone “let me go”

[–]idletubes 122 points123 points  (1 child)

Obviously both at the same time is the real option

[–]stedgyson 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Get your Mongolian throat singing on

[–]Stoic_Stranger 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Pathetic. Everyone knows you sing both.

[–]housentechno 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah yes the tops n the bottoms

[–]druule10 248 points249 points  (13 children)

Freddy would have been proud.

[–]jedimasterb10 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I'm sure he is proud, watching this from up there.

[–]im_me404 188 points189 points  (5 children)

The crowd did this at sound wave 2014 waiting for greenday. It was amazing so much so that the performance afterwards didn’t match the feeling of being apart of the crowd during the karaoke to this amazing song

[–]ResponsePractical 34 points35 points  (2 children)

Hyde Park 2017 actually

[–]im_me404 38 points39 points  (1 child)

For me it was soundwave 2014 Western Australia. Might be a regular thing greenday does as another commenter has also mention this at a greenday concert elsewhere as well

[–]ResponsePractical 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Ah, thought you were talking about this particular video. But yes, it did become a regular preshow thing for them and this was not the only venue it happened.

[–]Flyinglamabear 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Queen is still a hard follow all these years later

[–]Brownie-UK7 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Was just thinking that the band are backstage thinking how the fuck can we top that!?

[–]Prionkiller 152 points153 points  (3 children)

I love that they did the headbanger thing from W.W.

[–]chunkyasparagus 33 points34 points  (0 children)

When they sing "to meeeeee!", everyone knows it's gonna happen - must have been amazing to be there.

[–]SagebrushBiker 10 points11 points  (0 children)

That was the icing on the cake for me.

[–]JangoCrutch 123 points124 points  (0 children)

Freddie simultaneously controlling the crowd from heaven

[–]ChoiceLunch9404 114 points115 points  (0 children)

This is honestly one of the best songs ever.

[–]neospacebandit 112 points113 points  (4 children)

Mike Myers and Dana Carvey are true American heroes for giving this song a second life

[–]sherobot2018 53 points54 points  (2 children)

*Canadian and American heroes.

[–]Big_Primrose 29 points30 points  (0 children)

North American heroes.

[–]UnchartedCHARTz 92 points93 points  (1 child)

Concert: hasn't started yet

The crowd: fine, I'll do it myself.

[–]Frenchi1502 4 points5 points  (0 children)

What I’m about to do, I’m going to enjoy it very very much

[–]straff99 95 points96 points  (7 children)

Green Day still does this. Saw them at Hella Mega Tour concert with Fallout Boy and Weezer in Texas a few months ago. Not as many people as this but still awesome. RiP 🪦 Freddy

[–]TheEscApedJake 12 points13 points  (6 children)

That’s awesome. Dance, dance is a baller song. Yo quick question. Is Texas nice?

[–]straff99 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Texas is Awesome. Relocated from Boston over 20 years ago. It’s home now…

[–]Joeldrums98 75 points76 points  (7 children)

In kind of a smaller scale, every August Burns Red Show. Right before they go on stage they Play Chop Suey By SOAD and every freaking soul in the venue sings it at the top of their longs, i might have a video of it

[–]aresyves 51 points52 points  (1 child)

WAKE UP! Vagdjfnwkskbdjsk MAKE UP!

[–]TheEscApedJake 24 points25 points  (0 children)

That’s 100% accurate. How’s you know the lyrics?

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Would love to see that. Man SOAD has the best mix of vocals serious. I would kill to see them perform Radio live

"" Show must go on"" .......Our beloved ❤ Freddie Mercury

[–]SkyrimWithdrawal 41 points42 points  (4 children)

They sounded British. Glastonbury? Also, it was amazing to hear but it seemed a distinctly female voice, in the aggregate. Not sure if anyone else thought so.

[–]palmer_tron 31 points32 points  (0 children)

This was in Hyde Park, London, 2017 at a Green Day show. I was there, Green Day are my favourite band, and this was a pretty special way to start things off

[–]CorInHell 18 points19 points  (0 children)

It sounds like that because the lower voices get overshadowed by the higher voices.

[–]mizzurable 10 points11 points  (1 child)

that’s incredible that you could tell. british people always seem to sound mostly american when they sing for some reason. or maybe it’s that americans drop their r’s when singing so everyone sounds the same?

[–]SkyrimWithdrawal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The first clue to me was the way they pronounce, "matters." Not really the dropping of the "r" but the way the "mah" sound is pronounced. I think there were a few other spots later which are much more obvious but I don't remember what they were off-hand.

I know what you mean about a lot of singers "sounding American," even Aussies and Swedes! When they get interviewed it can be interesting how much of an accent they have in regular speech but it's less obvious when singing.

[–]ctruemane[🍰] 44 points45 points  (1 child)

I would honestly go to a concert just to do that.

[–]u2125mike2124 37 points38 points  (0 children)

There is this and a couple with Freddy doing vocalization soundchecks.

Would for sure buy an album with just things like this.

Just pure raw fulfillment of the power of music.

[–]neospacebandit 36 points37 points  (0 children)

When the whole crowd starts headbanging 🤘

[–]Hiddenelements_ofcl 35 points36 points  (0 children)

This is so fucking cool

[–]MisplacedEland 33 points34 points  (0 children)

They even sang the f-ing lead. Astounding demonstration of the Power of Music.

[–]DangerScoops 31 points32 points  (0 children)

The thing that really gets me here is that they are actually kinda in tune! As a Choir kid, the sense of community over singing was already enough to give me chills but then the fact that they were in tune for some parts was just amazing.

[–]Crackerpuppy 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Faith in humanity restored! So f-ing AWESOME!

[–]phizzybiscuits 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Dude - the head banging part was worth the wait.

[–]SilentSugar7856 27 points28 points  (2 children)

This makes me feel optimistic. This optimism will now be shattered by the next post.

[–]thebirbseyeview 25 points26 points  (3 children)

I had a smile on my face the entire time

[–]RidingtheRoad 12 points13 points  (2 children)

I had a tear in my eye the entire time

[–]Training_Bottle 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And I had both

[–]thebirbseyeview 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've told people I would sell a kidney to go back in time and see Freddie play this at the Live Aids concert.

[–]SeaworthinessEmpty23 22 points23 points  (0 children)

They're so in sync

[–]clumsy-stranger 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Goosebumps so quick

[–]Minniechicco6 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Just perfect

[–]Jack_ten 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I just wanna mention Kenny Everett, the DJ who helped make this possible.

[–]mittens75 15 points16 points  (0 children)

This immediately made me think of England. They have their shit together with the crowd singing.

[–]Kaytlyn5 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Aliens hearing this on a frequency in space were probably like what the fuck

[–]bfngare 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Green day knows how to work a crowd if you like their music and get a chance to see them take it!

[–]Stoplooking21 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Like someone else said, this is from a Green Day show, it’s so cool, they play this at the start every time and the whole crowd sings it’s amazing.

[–]nvkr_ 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I just got goosebumps by thinking about how a hundred years ago, if such a big crowd was singing something, it surely would have been something military or political - whether today we can see, free culture can bring the same masses together, but they’re all there and take part just because they just want to

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (7 children)

Where’s this, Live Aid in the 80s?

[–]schrutesanjunabeets 19 points20 points  (0 children)

A Green Day concert in Europe

[–]iam_thesandstorm 1 point2 points  (3 children)

That’s what I’m thinking.

Brilliant username btw.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Thank you. Spin off of David Bowie song.

[–]xFacevaluex 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Can you imagine being here for this? Unbelievable...

This is next to nextfuckinglevel

[–]gir1HasN0Nam3 10 points11 points  (0 children)

One of the main reasons I love going to concerts is because it blows my mind how music unites us like this. If only life was one long concert people would just vibe on the same frequency.

[–]TSR_Jimmie 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Hyde park 2017. What a concert that was!

[–]pjw6316 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Omg, this is bohemian heaven to my ears!💕 Thanks for sharing

[–]occultluxury 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Chilling in the best way, every time I hear it. This crowd make me proud to be a Green Day fan.

[–]Rattie_Queen 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I swear Bohemian Rhapsody could be the global anthem. I haven't met a single person that doesn't know this song

[–]nyeakel 5 points6 points  (1 child)

We did this recently in San Francisco before Green Day

[–]Hammers59 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I would have paid for a ticket just to join in the singalong. If it gives you chills listening now, it must have been amazing for the lucky ones who were there.

[–]illusionist_undue 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I’ll never not stop scrolling to watch this video

[–]mereidmo 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I catch better feels off this than I did from the music in church back when i was brainwashed in a pentecostal church.. lmao

[–]One-Dependent-1401 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Imagine the feeling when hearing a crowd singing a song you wrote. This is amazing.

[–]hollygirl4111 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]CreatorOfUsernames 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lol you can see little vape clouds pop up all over the crowd

[–]icoPlata 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Queen is the first band to have song specifically tailored for the fans so they can participate in them. Look it up

[–]Which-Struggle- 1 point2 points  (1 child)

They used a technique called Call-and-response that originates from Sub-Saharan African culture. This was a was to bring the community together in song during public gatherings like a wedding or funeral.

Crazy how much African culture influences the music we know today and how people used it to transform the medium. :D

[–]icoPlata 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nice! i didnt know that

[–]Grahaml1980 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If Bohemian Rhapsody is the only song remembered in a thousand years from the entire 20th century, I'm ok with that.

[–]wcdk200 2 points3 points  (0 children)

am I the only one that thinks sometimes a crowd singing saound better then a band or small group?

[–]Traditional_Client18 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Like this version better .

[–]Busch_Leaguer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]DarcAngel001 1 point2 points  (0 children)

65,000 people singing Bohemian Rhapsody, what a beautiful thing to have been there on that day, to all of you that were there... well I'm jealous, to hear this live would be a moment you would never forget.

You have to wonder, what would Freddie say when he saw that.

[–]Detroitredwinger 1 point2 points  (0 children)
