A dedicated and skilled guitarist and songwriter best known for his role in the British classic rock band Queen. Despite being slightly overshadowed by singer Freddie Mercury, May has contributed largely to the Queen catologue and, being overall the most well-versed guitarist out of the four Queen members, was invaluable to the group. He penned many of Queen's finer tracks, including "White Queen," "Brighton Rock," "The Prophet's Song," "Teo Torriatte (Let Us Cling Together)," and of course the world-famous "We Will Rock You." His trademark as a guitarist is the large amount of overdubs he often employs in his work, such as the solo to "Killer Queen".

May also has an intense interest in astrophysics; in fact, he was earning his PhD in the early days of Queen, but dropped out of college to work on music full-time. Then, in 2007, he picked up where he left off and officially attained his PhD. He has also co-written a book on the history of the universe.

Brian May (or, rather, the 1970's version of May) is often lusted after--or, put more innocently, "crushed on"--by female Queen fans who sometimes identify themselves as "Mayniacs." Not that the author of this definition has anything in common with those people, of course...*nervous laughter*
Brian May's excellence as a guitarist and songwriter is apparent on tracks such as "Brighton Rock" and "The Prophet's Song."

A saying that has existed for a long time, but wasn't extremely popular until it became famous through the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland, in which a pirate-ish skull and crossed bones on the wall utters this very phrase, among other things. Basically, what it means is that to keep something quiet, kill anyone who knows about it and, since that person is dead, it would be pretty much impossible for them to tell your secret. A similar saying is "Three can keep a secret if two are dead," invented by Benjamin Franklin.
So, you don't want anyone to find out that you're secretly a Hilary Duff fan? Just kill everyone who already knows--after all, dead men tell no tales.

A word that's so long that I had to make a space within it so the example for this definition would be accepted. What's more, it's the longest word in the English language. Basically, pneumonoultramicropscopicsilicovolcano coniosis a lung disease caused by breathing in particles of siliceous volcanic dust. Invented by some guy who had too much time on his hands and wanted to make history by creating the longest word ever.
Doctor: Sir, I am afraid you have come down with a severe case of pneumonoultramicropscopicsilicovolcano coniosis due to exposure to volcanic dust.

Patient: WTF!?!?!?!?

Me: I feel your pain, dude...I feel your pain.

Bursting into a prolonged fit of intense, uncontrollable laughter. Instigating this sort of reaction in someone is called "Cracking that person up."
John told me a hilarious joke the other day and I started cracking up.

A phenomena occuring in the music industry, in which an aspect of a band member's (usually the frontman/woman's) personality, actions, etc. becomes subject to quite a lot of debate among both fans and haters of the band. This would be perfectly alright, except for what inevitably happens is that the debate becomes so overblown that people begin to forget about the music of the band, and all they really know is the trivial feud over the aspect of the frontman/frontwoman. Named after Freddie Mercury, the frontman of the British classic rock band Queen, and Kurt Cobain, the frontman of the early '90s grunge band Nirvana.
Mercury/Cobain Effect:

Nirvana Fan 1: Courtney killed Kurt Cobain!

Nirvana Fan 2: Kurt killed himself!

Nirvana Fan 3: You're both wrong, Kurt is alive and well and hiding out in Winchestertonfieldville even as we speak!

Nirvana Fans 1 and 2: How dare you have an opinion that differs from mine, never mind the fact that it's a free country and everyone has the right to believe whatever they choose!

Nirvana fan with a brain: Guys, can't we just talk about the MUSIC instead of whether or not Kurt killed himself...?


Nirvana fan with a brain: *sigh*

* * *

Queen fan 1: Freddie Mercury was GAY!!!

Queen fan 2: No, he was bisexual!

Queen fan 3: He had a girlfriend and therefore was straight, so both of you shut up!

Queen fan 3: No, he was straight in the 1970s, but in the '80s, for some strange reason unknown to everyone on the planet, became gay!

Queen fan with a brain: Why does Freddie Mercury's orientation matter so much to you guys? He and his band made a lot of great music, and music is the whole reason we listen to Queen in the first place, so can't we just talk about the songs? You know, the whole REASON we all like Queen?

{insert awkward silence here}

Weirdo: Forget that, I think he was TRISEXUAL!!!

Queen fan with a brain: Just...just forget I said anything...*runs off and pounds head against the nearest wall in frustration*

A cool, fancy way of saying, "I could tell you about this, but I won't because it's not really that related to what I'm telling you about now." Used quite often in the book, "The Neverending Story", and also in the movies based off of it and the cartoon series based off of the movies. It's basically one of those phrases that everyone yearns to find a good opportunity to say, like "I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you", or "I'll be back...WITH WEAPONS!"
Once upon a time there was a thirteen-year-old who was bored so she decided to write a definition of "but that's another story for another time" on urbandictionary.com. After that she went on to do something completely different, with nothing to do in any way, shape, or form with urbandictionary.com...but that's another story for another time.

There are a number of specific events that have to take place to create a bona-fide reverbellion.

Event 1: Something, perhaps a band, movie, style of clothing, movie star, TV show, etc., becomes popular and loved by many people.

Event 2: Seeing how popular this thing, person, or idea has become, people start rebelling against the mainstream by hating it. This is one form of a rebellion.

Event 3: So many people start hating the thing, person, or idea that it becomes popular and maybe even hackneyed to dislike it.

Event 4: Other people begin rebelling against the new popularity by proclaiming that they like this thing, person, or idea, as opposed to hate it, and hence the true rebellion begins coming from the opposite direction--or "reverse" direction, if you will. This is called a reverbellion.
A good example of a reverbellion is the popularity of the Green Day album American Idiot. Many people, seeing how popular it was, started saying they hated it--some because they actually did hate it, others because they didn't really care either way and wanted a cheap excuse to rebel against the mainstream. But later on, hating American Idiot became so common that now there are a growing number of people proclaiming that it's stupid to hate American Idiot just because it gets a lot of airplay, and also stupid to attack people who like it by calling them teenies.
