Meet Dana Jay Bein — the architect of an absolutely inspired bit of musical parody that is making the rounds on the internet. His piece of art is titled “Coronavirus Rhapsody,” and yes, it’s exactly what you think it is: A parody of Queen’s legendary hit “Bohemian Rhapsody,” but with fresh lyrics reflecting the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has the world in its grasp.

The rhyme scheme, paired with the band’s classic 1979 hit “My Sharona,” is undeniable — but don’t look to “Weird Al” Yankovic for an updated parody anytime soon. https://twitter.com/alyankovic/status/1234923352810119168 Thankfully, Berton Averre and Prescott Niles of the Knack decided to embrace the madness of our current situation and dive fully into “Bye, Corona.” In a video that surfaced this week, Averre begins by saying he won’t attempt to sing…
