    I just searched for Queen in the music forum and to my great surprise, a thread for them hadn't been created (in a while at least) so I thought I'd give it a go.

    Queen are an extremely popular band, so you'll most likely have heard a few of their songs and know a little about them, but here's a little more info courtesy of Wikipedia.

    Wikipedia posted:
    Queen were an English rock band. Formed in London in 1970 following the demise of the band Smile, Queen consisted of vocalist Freddie Mercury, guitarist Brian May, bassist John Deacon and drummer Roger Taylor. The band became popular with audiences via their hit songs, live performances, originality and showmanship. Their 1985 Live Aid performance was voted the best live rock performance of all time by fellow artists, journalists and music industry executives in a 2005 industry poll. As of 2009, Queen have sold more than 300 million albums internationally.

    The guys themselves:



    The Music
    Queen have released 14 albums (not including Flash Gordon, since that was more of a movie soundtrack IMO) here are my personal favourites from each album.

    Queen
    Keep Yourself Alive

    Liar

    Queen II
    Ogre Battle

    The March of the Black Queen

    Sheer Heart Attack
    Brighton Rock

    The Game
    Dragon Attack

    Crazy Little Thing Called Love

    Hot Space
    Under Pressure

    Back Chat

    The Works
    Hammer to Fall

    I think it was Freddie's magical mustache that made the 70's so awesome.

    Edited:

    or did he grow it in the 80's?

    One of the best bands in history. My favourites! Bohemian Rhapsody is truly an amazing song.

    Yeah I kind of get the feeling it was supposed to be Freddy's final message to the world, just do whatever you want and be happy in what you do.

    Freddy Mercury was gay and it is a coincidence that when you take the N out of Queen and replace it with R, you get the word queer what is a synonym to gay/homo.

    Anyways, to this day, when i'm in class, i make the We Will Rock You beat with my legs and hands.

    Actually queen is already a slang word for a gay guy.

    I'm hoping Chaosdog was just taking the piss out of all the folk who try to connect every fucking song/lyric with AIDs or homosexuality.

    I can see the appeal that people have for Queen, but they could never appeal to me, from what i've heard (the popular songs) they're music just seems... exaggerated.

    The reason they are so popular is ridiculous lyrics coupled with amazing insturment work.

    If I put on all my favourite Queen songs, I'd be putting up half their discography, so I limited myself to 2 songs per album.

    Judging by your attitude, "I Want It All" may be a good choice.

    Joking, I love Queen. I used to be able to play that We will Rock You solo, I've forgotten it by now. Their music is great, I love Fat Bottomed Girls.

    Freddie Mercury was the greatest vocalist ever. And if you say otherwise you have no soul, for you do not deserve one.

    Woah. My interest in music pretty much started by listening to 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and their album Jazz.

    (As well as Ziggy Stadust but that's by Bowie.)

    If you listen to black flag you have a "good" taste in music pretty much no matter what.
