Queen frontman Freddie Mercury is being remembered on what would have been his 65th birthday with a Google doodle and cartoon video set to the band’s 1978 hit “Don’t Stop Me Now.”

The singer’s birthday was Labor Day, Monday Sept. 5, but the search engine also featured the doodle today.

Cartoon images of the singer are featured, with a play button in the middle that shows a 98-second YouTube video clip honoring Freddie and his group in cartoon form.

Freddie and his bandmates perform “Don’t Stop Me Now” in front of a sparkling Google logo background.

Freddie passed away in 1991 from AIDS-related causes.
