A flamboyant homosexual, usually male, always FABULOUS.
"Fuschia? Honey, I'm not _that_ big of a queen."
A band that is the very epitomy of kick-ass. They stormed the charts with Bohemian Rhapsody in the 70's (the version on the Greatest album is 5'58'')this includes rock, ballad and choral music - something not achieved by many people. They shamelessly wrote about the brilliance of gurls with fat asses *cheers to self tht someone appreciates us!* (fat bottomed girls)"Save me" is an anthem for the heartbroken, its a beautiful song. "Who wants to live forever" was written in the back of a car on the way home from hospital when freddie mercury discovered he had AIDs. The lyrics usually mean something if you listen to them deeply enough. And c'mon. If you're still not convinced they rock, when 15 year olds still listen to we will rock you about ten years after the lead singer died - its gotta be a pretty fantastic achievement.
"Mamma, life had just begun, but now I've gone and thrown it all away..." Beautiful.
everything that a band should aspire to. amazing vocals, beautiful lyrics (who wants to live forever) and good friends.
i miss freddie mercury, best singer EVER!
queen still rocks and will forever!
A rock band-first band to ever write a song about girls with fat asses (fat bottomed girls) and wrote first song over 5 minutes to ever top the charts (bohemian rhapsody)

An awsome Classic Rock band, released its first album, Queen, in 1974. Queen didn't make a big splsh until they relased A Night at the Opera, which contained Bohemian Rhapsody, the best song ever. It rocketed to the top of the charts, and Queen would never be the same again.
Soon afterwards, they released News of the World, which contained "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions", which were both very popular and exellent songs. You've heard em. Even the most remote native Mongolian villager in the Middle of Fucking Nohere knows those songs.
Queen branched out into many different musical genres, but retained their rocking feel throught.
In 1980, they released "Another one Bites The Dust", which you have also heard, so has the Mongolian. It reached #1 in the U.S. and became one of their most well known songs.
As the 80's continued, they released more pop-ish music and many fans deserted them.
Into the 90's, they were still releassing hit songs. Innuendo, released in 91, became another instant hit.
Freddie Mercury, the singer, was bisexual, and due to his lust for big, sweaty, throbbing cock, he contracted AIDS. He tried to keep this secrect from the public, however.
Few bands embodied the pure excess of the '70s like Queen. Embracing the exaggerated pomp of prog rock and heavy metal, as well as vaudevillian music hall, the British quartet delved deeply into camp and bombast, creating a huge, mock-operatic sound with layered guitars and overdubbed vocals. Queen's music was a bizarre yet highly accessible fusion of the macho and the fey. For years, their albums boasted the motto "no synthesizers were used on this record," signaling their allegiance with the legions of post-Led Zeppelin hard rock bands. But vocalist Freddie Mercury brought an extravagant sense of camp to the band, pushing them toward kitschy humor and pseudo-classical arrangements, as epitomized on their best-known song, "Bohemian Rhapsody." Mercury, it must be said, was a flamboyant bisexual who managed to keep his sexuality in the closet until his death from AIDS in 1992. Nevertheless, his sexuality was apparent throughout Queen's music, from their very name to their veiled lyrics -- it was truly bizarre to hear gay anthems like "We Are the Champions" turn into celebrations of sports victories. That would have been impossible without Mercury, one of the most dynamic and charismatic frontmen in rock history. Through his legendary theatrical performances, Queen became one of the most popular bands in the world in the mid-'70s; in England, they remained second only to the Beatles in popularity and collectibility in the '90s. Despite their enormous popularity, Queen were n...more...
