Good for you. It's great that such generosity towards crap bands, bad songs and weak singers still exists in today's harsh climate of fear and economic turmoil. What other charities do you support?

this drives me mad. do you know what you´re talking about?
the dexys first lp "searching for the young soul rebel" is a real classic.
i am pretty sure you have never heared it and judge the band for the played to death "come on eileen".
a lot of people don´t take queen serious because they only know their "played to death" stuff like wwry, watc, rgg, iwtbf, akom, br, the same idiots.

now eat this:

television- marquee moon
love- forever changes
scott walker- 4
beatles- sgt pepper
nick drake- all 3 lps
jesus and mary chain - psychocandy
steely dan -gaucho
pink floyd- piper at the gates of dawn
big star- sisters lovers
carole king- tapestry
young marble giants- colossale youth
my bloody valentine- isn´t anything
gene clark- no other
television personalities- and don´t the kids just love it
joy division-unknown pleasure
captain beefheart- safe as milk
can- tago mago
harmonia- musik von
ornette coleman- the shape of jazz to come
wire- pink flag

and the ones i forgot...
no queen in it??   shit i forgot

Hey I´m a queen anorak - it´s true, that´s why I´m here. I think you´ll find people here with 10 or 15 queen albums in their 20 if they are honest...and more power to them - you like what you like.

Unknown album from obscure, unsigned band
Folk album from trio of Bolivian gravediggers
One of Tin Machine's inaccessable albums
An album of whale song by Shamu
The sound trees make when no one is around - by some trees in a rainforest somewhere
Unknown album - Unknown artist
Some punk album from the '70s. Doesn't matter which one or who by, as long as they committed suicide
Some awful album by a band only famous because John Peel discovered them
Album by a barely-known but 'quirky' female artist
A Motown album: anyone will do to establish my street cred.
Ditto a 1920s Delta Blues album - by any old geezer, as long as he's black and has been on a chaingang
A jazz album by Bleeding Gums Murphy
Whatever album is out next by the next big thing accoridng to NME
An unlistenable John Cale album
Some classical music: it doesn't matter which piece as long as it's obscure
Something by Dream Theater
Something by Transiberian Orchestra
Exile on Main Street by the Rollin Stones
One of Dylans's early albums
Dylan's latest album

There, no Queen and totally non-partisan Have I proved how open-minded and street cred I am yet? If not, I can always throw in some Irish folk music...
