Is it just me or does anyone else have no clue what song someone is referring to when the mention e.g. AOBTD or TWTDOOL?

It takes me a few seconds of brain racking to work ou what song it is, and I know them all intimately, having been listening to Queen from the 70's.

Maybe my brain just doesn't work tha way?

SHIT = The Cosmos Rocks

It took a few months for me to get to read all of them as if the entire title was written. Your time will come.

This is the Internet. We can't be bothered to actually spell anything out. That would require too much effort.

I was wondering the same thing actually. Is it a Queenzone thing? Is it typical for the fans of any group to identify themselves by using acronyms of the songs?

p.s. that KYA the other day about Keep Yourself Alive really gave me a hard time.

The sad thing is, that it's also wrong. The old racist stereotype said that the Chinese pronounced the R like an L. The JAPANESE were said to pronounce the L like an R.
