What is the most overplayed Queen song? I think that We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions is the most overplayed. What do you say?

We Will Rock You, definitely.
I Want To Break Free, We Are The Champions are also on the list (here in Nepal at least).
Bohemian Rhapsody is very, very underplayed here.

I Want To Break Free is never played on the radio here in America. lol. Bohemian Rhapsody is played quite often but not as often as WWRY and WATC. Another One Bites The Dust and Killer Queen are some other overplayed songs. lol.

I'm from Poland and there are really many Queen songs played in radio. I heard: Bohemian Rhapsody, We Are The Champions, Bicycle Race, Another One Bites The Dust, Radio GaGa, I Want To Break Free, A Kind Of Magic, Who Wants To Live Forever, Breakthru, Invisible Man, Innuendo, I'm Going Slightly Mad, These Are The Days Of Our Lives, The Show Must Go On, Heaven For Everyone, Too Much Love Will Kill You, You don't Fool Me. 

Invisible man, you dont fool me and heaven for everyone are mostly overplayed.

In America it is definitely Bohemian Rhapsody. After that comes the whole WWRY and Champions combination and then once in a while you'll here Crazy Little Thing or Another One Bites the Dust. Very rarely will you here somebody to love. I have never once heard Killer Queen on the radio, that is FM radio...satellite radio is a different story. But this is how it is in Southern California

First off, there is no way Bohemian Rhapsody could ever be overplayed. Greatest single of all time. I hear Killer Queen quite a bit, but what I'd give to hear I Want To Break Free on American radio.

In Germany "Radio Gaga" has the heaviest rotation...., "A Kind Of Magic", "I Want To Break Free" and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" are also often on air....

Sometimes "Champions", "Friends Will Ba Friends" and "The Show Must Go On"

In 1990 I managed to get "Power To Love" played on radio, sending in a wishlist....  :-)) but only once...

in France we have as often as possible :
We Will Rock You
We Are The Champions
Another One Bites The Dust
I Want To Break Free
I Want It All
A Kind Of Magic
Radio Gaga
The Show Must Go On
Bohemian Rhapsody
Heaven For Everyone
You Don't Fool Me

Sometimes we have Somebody To Love, Under Pressure, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Don't Stop Me Now, Who Wants To Live Forever, Bicycle Race.

Then the oldest single we have on radio is Boh Rhap !

If I were to hear Radio Ga Ga on the radio here in America, i would fall out of my chair in disbelief and then call the radio station to THANK THEM!        It's a criminally ignored song here in the States...and one of Queen's best IMO.

=====================

Ditto for my part of the world in Ontario, Canada.  In fact I'm virtually certain I have never heard anything on terrestrial radio past 'Body Language' with the exception of 'I Want to Break Free'.  In addition I hear 'Killer Queen', 'Bo Rhap', 'Best Friend,  'Somebody to Love', 'Rock You/Champions', 'Bicycle Race', 'Fat Bottomed Girls, "Crazy Little Thing' and 'Dust' that's about it.  Sometimes you'll hear 'Seven Seas of Rhye' or 'Keep Yourself Alive' or 'Now I'm Here' on some album track segments. Satellite is only marginally better as I think I've only heard 'Tie Your Mother Down', 'Gaga' and 'Innuendo' once or twice beyond those already listed.  I want to say I've also heard 'Black Queen' once, but I might be making that up. And I've got an artist alert set to notify me when a Queen song is playing on any station on satellite at any time no matter what I'm currently listening to, so it's unlikely there's much more played unless it's all played when I don't have the radio on (unlikely).  It's such a crying shame, especially on satellite when they've got programming like 'Classic Vinyl' and 'Deep Tracks' where all the off-hit gems should be showcased.

I'm in NY and agree with you.  Why don't they play ragio Ga Ga?...it was even a top 40 hit.  I don't get it.
