The Goldbergs to Pay Respect to Queen's Freddie Mercury in "Bohemian Rap City" Episode

November 5, 2018

The Wednesday, November 7th episode of The Goldbergs features a favorite moment of the entire season for Executive Producer, Adam F. Goldberg.

“Anyone who grew up with me knows that Queen is my favorite band of all time,” said Goldberg. “I grew up obsessively collecting Queen T-shirts and concert posters and rare UK imports of their CDs.”

Goldberg has always wanted to pay tribute to Mercury and when he learned there was a new Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody in theaters he knew it was time to produce an episode for The Goldbergs.

“Queen was incredibly generous allowing us to feature their masterpiece ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ on my show,” said Goldberg. “They even allowed us to write an absurd rap for Barry Goldberg (Troy Gentile) to add into the song, as he mistakes the word “Rhapsody” for ‘Rap City.’ It’s incredibly rare for a legendary band to be so generous with their music and have a sense of humor about it. The way we cover the song on the show is truly my favorite moment in the entire series.”
