    This good . . . (rare live recording of this song, has a couple glitches)

    Bonus: harlequin soliloquy with Freddie.

    Double Bonus: puffy shirt.

    Freddie is easily one of the greatest frontmen of all time. Add one of the best Rock guitar players to grace a stage, and there is no question how awesome Queen was.

    Freddie was a better piano player than Elton.

    They were really really good at what they did. As with lots of great stuff, though, it just comes down to how much you like it. I never liked what they did very much but I had enormous respect for how well they did it. I don't like opera either, but wildly respect great opera singers. These two things are not all that different...

    Unique! I got to see them once, back in 'the day'. The opened with Jailhouse Rock. It was so cool.

    I love Queen, Brian May is one of the reasons I play guitar... Freddie Mercury is one of my favorite voices from all time....

    If their music were a painting, it would be the Sistine Chapel.

    They were as good as it gets. You can't think of classic rock without thinking of Queen.

    I remember hearing them on the radio back in the day. They truly were original and I loved the harmonized guitar parts.

    Big fan right here. Unfortunately just a hair too young to have seen them live since they stopped touring the US in '82.

    Saw Brian May on Back to Light tour in mid 90s.....Wow.

    No interest in what they did with Paul Rodgers or the guy they have now. Queen was truly the sum of all four parts but w/out Freddie...it ain't Queen.

    Epic band in every sense of the word.

    Saw them live twice while in high school in London in the 70s. Unbelievable.

    One helluva band.
    Their music has stood the test of time.
    I.E. They STILL get a fair share of air play.

    They're not my favorite band, but pretty high on the list, and I still consider them one of the best rock bands of all time.
