Glastonbury Festival’s decision to give Kanye West one of the weekend’s headliner positions was criticized by fans who signed an online petition calling for West to be replaced by a “rock band.” That didn’t happen in reality, but West was happy to play some classic rock for the masses during his Saturday night performance. The rapper covered Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” for about 90 seconds during his set, before tearing into “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.”

West’s Saturday night performance was an eventful one: In addition to the Queen cover, West was also stage-crashed by a British comedian during “Black Skinhead.”
