Watch Generation Axe Jam "Bohemian Rhapsody" with Brian May

Earlier this week, we reported on Nuno Bettencourt's upcoming, guest star-packed AXS TV special, At Home and Social with Nuno Bettencourt & Friends.

Though the entire lineup for the show - which took place on August 3 - was stacked, of particular note was the show's highlight, Generation Axe - Bettencourt, Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Tosin Abasi and Yngwie Malmsteen - teaming up with Brian May for a performance of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Thankfully, we didn't have to wait too long before a video of the, unsurprisingly, awesome performance popped up on YouTube.

You can check it out - in all of its momentous, shred-tacular, six-guitar glory - above.
