I think it would be boring and rock music would be crap until The Darkness came along.

I don't think there would be The Darkness, if there were no Queen in the world. :P

We wouldn't know, because we wouldn't miss Queen.

It would be incredibly boring, at least my world... Don't even wanna think about it.


Give me a good guitar, and you can say that my hair's a disgrace, oh, just find me an open car - I'll make the speed of light out of this place...

I agree that the music world would suck without Queen...and I also think that The Darkness would most likely not be here,because their music is very much Queen influenced

The Darkness are influenced far more musically by Thin Lizzy than Queen anyway. As far as being a showman, Justin is equal parts Freddie and Rob Halford, which I guess if you are going to copy off of frontmen, you could pick worse!

I can't even imagine it. I wouldn't be listening to any of the music I listen to, because Queen got me into all the music I listen to. I'd probably still be listening to Top 40 crap...

'The Darkness are influenced far more musically by Thin Lizzy than Queen anyway'

How? Because Dan Hawkins wheres a Thin Lizzy shirt all the time. He might be but world without Queen = world without Darkness (as they are now anyway). Justin said it himself on a breakfast show called 'RI:SE' in the U.k. When asked who were you influenced by mainly and Justin said Queen and King (some 80's band). Don't know whether he was joking. But Ed (the drummer) was wearing a Queen t-shirt that day. And when the presenter said your wearing a Queen shirt aswell he just replied ye, i am.

Good point actually. See I dont think about these things. I should try. But my other defense is they stole One Vision riff and if you wanna go further into it they stole the beggining of the STL guitar solo for Xmas time (which is the best xmas song ever, better than TGI xmas. soz!)

Especially Growing On Me, that riff is pure Lizzy. They are a pretty cool band, one of the best live shows that I have ever seen, and I have seen 'em all......


TGI X-Mas is the worst christmas song (save Mariah Carey) I think I have ever heard....

The world would be three people smaller, plus the number of people who took the band's advice on Keep Yourself Alive and Don't Try Suicide.

Think if there had been no Killer Queen, no Bo Rhap...just dull soulless pop crap like Britney Spears and Justin Trousersnake. And...N'Sync...

somewhat different... I think I would be constantly depressed and angry. I wouldn't even conceive this situation. I would be a fan of something. In the worst case Britney...oooooooh!
Thank God It's QUEEN!
