Some of these might seem silly but I can't help hearing those songs and not thinking of a certain Queen song.

- The beginning of 'Orange Crush' by REM reminds me an awful lot of Radio Ga-Ga.

- 'Crazy Train' by Ozzy Osburne... Whenever I hear the first guitar riff, it sounds to me kinda like the one from 'Hammer To Fall'.

- The drums on some parts of 'Pour Some Sugar On Me' by Def Leppard sound just like 'We Will Rock You'.

- Kashmir by Led Zeppelin has it's similarities to Innuendo, and in fact it was Roger the one who said that Innuendo was like Queen's Kashmir.

I always thought that if Queen did a heavy metal track, it would sound like "Flash of the Blade" by Iron Maiden.

"Stole Queens harmonies"

I'm sorry to break your bubble, but Queen didn't invent harmonies

Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" sounds a bit like Queen's "Under Pressure" Queen must probably have stolen it from him...


You've never seen nothing like it, no never in your life. Like going up to heaven and then coming back alive.

"- The beginning of 'Orange Crush' by REM reminds me an awful lot of Radio Ga-Ga."

Um - maybe I need to go back and listen to those again.

I think of Queen every time I listen to "Brother" by Pearl Jam. Of course, that may be because it was heavily influenced by a certain person with very big hair.

Also - and this is kind of bizarred - I think Tony Arata's song "The Dance" may have had some major Queen influences.

Nah - Jon Bon Jovi :D

Actually, their guitarist specifically said in an interview that Brian influenced the song. That's why "Brother" is my new favorite PJ song ;)

The beginning of "Cold as Ice" sounds slightly similar too.

I could always picture Queen doing a good live version of "Hold On Tight" by ELO :)

What was that hugely popular song a few years ago by a female artist that has the same ending as "Radio Ga-Ga"? It has that same guitar thing but I can't think of it....

I STILL think it sounds like Ghostbusters. And I've heard it a good few times.

Goinback- do you mean 'Torn' sung by Natalie Imbruglia? That what I thought when I herd it. The guiter at the end is not exactly the same, but very similar.
