I dont think many Queen fans take this album seriously. Queen died when freddie died, this is something else, its not Queen.

I'm still not convinced that that will be the name of the new album. Terrible if it is though...

The cosmos rocks what hell the does it even mean
and i agree Queen died when Freddie died in 1991
yes i can admit it was nice when queen done the tribite show for Freddie
but now they should just give up or change their name from queen cause its not queen with freddie or john.

What the fuck are you on about. It's no worse than the Miracle or Hot Space. Who gives a shit what it's called. For all those fans still bitching 'oh it's not Queen without freddie' shut up you snobs. We know it's not the original line up but neither was Zeppelin last December, The Who are just Daltrey and Townsend now, Thin Lizzy do not have Phil Lynott and they recently toured. Get over it, don't be such snobs plenty of bands still have much to offer even if they no longer have their classic line ups, Queen in 2008 are not he same but why shouldn't half the original band still play the music, what is the alternative, tribute bands!

Exactly, all they are doing now is ruining the incredible legacy as the greatest band on earth EVER.

you seem to be stupid enough to not understand that Freddie was the heart of Queen and the heart has stopped.

Great post. But don't even bother trying to reason with "Treasure Moment" or his two friends here. He's a broken record, brick wall, and a(n often robotic) closed mind all in one. Look... watch what will happen when he replies:

Says who? You? The future can't change the past, so nothing will happen to your precious "legacy" that seems to validate your entire experience. As for your "greatest band" claim, even Queen themselves (and just about every other rational person in the world) accepts that if there is one group of entertainers who hold the torch for all others in their field to follow, it's The Beatles.

Brian May is Queen.

He can do whatever he wants with the band he created 40 years ago... the name... is just that... a name... and Brian worked harder for Queen that any other member... and still does.

The name of the album? it´s just a name... like someone else said: what about "the miracle", "hot space"... even "the game".... or the worst of all "Mr Bad Guy" hahaha..

And what about the song title? When "Bohemian Rhapsody" saw the light most people would think: WTF????...

Get away tossers...

Queen rocks!

I have to agree with mr. masterstroke, what he hell does it matter what the name is? Did Queen care about the label, cathegory? NO. It's the contents that are important. And I doubt any of us should be disappointed with it in case you leave freddie where he belongs and let the music LIVE. Hearts and ears.
Also you keep forgetting one simple thing while discussing the greatest band ever topic - every band that has an army of fans as its support IS the greatest band ever! At least for those fans. And it's normal. Not the two perceptions of the world are the same. Same is in music. So, for TReasuremoment they are the greatest, and if he wants to believe that at least he knows what he wants to believe in. Comparing and charting doesn't lead anywhere coz no one has the right to be the judge...

When Queen + Paul Rodgers first appeared, I was ecstatic. Finally, my favorite band (minus two important characters) was touring. I saw Q+PR live and I loved it. It was the thrill of a lifetime. When album rumors started circulating, I was a bit excited over that possibility, too.

Ok, so, I've read on several credible websites that the name of the album shall be The Cosmos Rocks. What a terrible fucking album title. Brian May clearly came up with that one. As if rambling on and on about outer space on his website's soapbox isn't enough. Whatever. Brian's interests are his interests and I respect that, but to give an album such a silly name is just outrageous. And by the way, C-lebrity!? Awful song title. Just awful.

I am quickly losing interest in Q+PR and regaining my interest in Queen, with Freddie Mercury.


That was a tantrum. You're way overreacting to a title that isn't the album title. Officially the album is untitled. So relax. Save your tantrum for when there's something to legitimately bitch about.

And I'm sure "Radio Ga Ga" didn't sound like a super-terrific song title either. Wait til you hear it before you decry its quality.

"Go and fuck yourself!" to you from all those fans who're still bitching 'oh it's not Queen without freddie'. And then go and listen to your fucking new version of Thin Lizzy.

I like QZ for such arguments like "shut up", "fuck off", "get over it", "you moron" etc. it brings some stability in our discussions, some kind of firmness that you're right...

Um bohemian rhapsody strange title yes but is it a great song? i rest my case if you understand,IF AND IT'S A BIG IF it's called the cosmos rocks then great it'S what inside that counts.

But saying that i had a thought that if brian may said to the public " guys and gals here's a competition to name the new album and the winner will get free tickets, backstage access etc... i'm sure that would be great.




Yes we'll keep on tryin

we'll tread that fine line

oh oh we'll keep on tryin

till the end of time

till the end of time.

"Surely the name of the live album isn't Rock Montreal?"
"That cover must be a mock-up that Play.com made?"
"Say It's Not True can't be any indication of how the new album sounds like."


I have a news flash for anybody who hasn't been following around the Queen world this millennium:

For one reason or another their creative output has regressed to the level of a 16-year old Dutch bootlegger (no offence to the Dutch). The titles are cliched, the artwork is horrible, and the music is amateurish to say the least.

Prepare to be rocked indeed!

Being objetive about it, the title is meaningless.
I don't actually think it matters that much but a bit more imagination would have been nice.
Let's hope they change it!
Remember Freddie's solo album was going to be called 'Made in Heaven' until weeks before production - nothing's set in stone yet....

As for the topic itself; there's probably a dozen 'better' titles that could be given to the new album, but I'd rather have something that wasn't guessed on Queenzone. It'd ruin the surprise.

Dont make me laugh, the beatles is NOWEHRE near Queens level. Its like comparing an amateur shit band with Queen. The beatles is just hype, not actual good musicians. Queen is on a another level, like 1 million times better in every aspect.

Nobody is saying they shouldn't tour, its the fact that they are called Queen that people dont like.
