Queen, Aerosmith, and Alice Cooper members have gathered around for a virtual reunion for the 1992 movie, Wayne’s World, as a part of actor Josh Gad’s ongoing Reunited Apart series.

Aerosmith was part of the iconic Wayne’s World sketch on Saturday Night Live, where they joined Wayne Campbell (Mike Myers) and Garth Algar (Dana Carvey) for an interview and a number on the TV show.

Cooper also made a cameo in the movie where he greeted Wayne and Garth Backstage at a concert, to which he was responded with: “We’re not worthy!”

“I think they probably couldn’t get the Stones or the Beatles. Scraping the barrel until I was the only one left,” said Cooper joking around with his casting on the movie. “I was just supposed to talk,” he added. “And then when I got there Michael said ‘Oh, by the way, here’s like eight pages to learn.”

Last but not the least, it was Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” that made the movie most memorable, where the gang headbanged their way through the tune while driving in a car.

Brian May confirmed that Freddie Mercury watched the scene prior to his death in 1991, and absolutely adored it.  “I took [a VHS tape of the scene] ’round to Freddie not long before he went and showed it to him, because you said you wanted to have the approval. He loved it, he just laughed and laughed. He was very weak, but he just smiled and laughed. He said, ‘How wonderful is that?’” he said, talking directly to Myers.

They also discussed how Wayne and Garth came to be, with actress Tia Carrere reflecting on her role as Cassandra, and how actor Rob Lowe got involved in the project.
