It recently came to light that in 1991, Freddie Mercury approved the scene used in 1992's Wayne's World featuring Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." Brian May says, "Mike Myers actually sent a tape across, because he wanted Freddie to hear it. Freddie wasn't very well by that time. I took it 'round and he listened to it and watched it -- and he loved it. So Mike got the seal of approval from Freddie." Mercury died shortly thereafter, in November 1991, and the use of the song in the film gave resurgence to the band's career.
