Does anyone else think that William Hung is completely going overboard with his "music career"?? I think he SUX!!!! When I was watching VH1, I saw him dressed up like Freddie and that, I think, insults him (Freddie). I think everything William does is stupid..I mean, who listens to his "music"???? I believe that William is a disgrace to music and to Queen.

He's living his dream. Is there anything wrong with that? He may not be the most talented singer, but that isn't the point. He's got balls, and apparently he's willing to go as long as it lasts.

There are many professional pop stars today who can't sing much better than William Hung, and who are as you say, a "disgrace" to music. Anyone listen to Britney Spears? That girl is IMHO worse to listen to than William Hung.

At least, you should respect his courage.

I personally don't like his music. I find it neither funny or amusing, only rather pathetic. I also dislike the fact that he chose take an excellent piece of music like WRTC and tear it apart w/ his singing, while dancing around dressed up as Freddie. I found that disgusting. If he wants to sing his own music that way fine, but to take other great songs and tear them to pieces is "disgraceful."

Well, Freddie loved to laugh and I think Mr. Hung would've provided an excellent resource, so I have no problem with it.

Honestly, I was a little upset when I first heard about him covering We Are The Champions, but now I realize that it's not that big a deal. He's doing what he loves, so good for him. He may not be your typical star, but he's having fun doing what he's doing.

I don't wanna be mean but I do think it's a bit of a disgrace for Queen.... and I don't think it was at all apropreite for him to dress up like Freddie. That's Freddie's thing and only his I think. I don't enjoy his music at all.... and I really wish he would just stick to other songs that aren't Queen ones...

William Hung might be an awful singer, but the fact that he's so good at being bad that it makes him a good "singer". The hilarious way how he sings and performs makes him a way much better entertainer than all these people...

- Ashlee Simpson, Kelly Osbourne (and all the girls who want to become singers because they have a mom, dad, or sis in show biz. Then whine about how hard they have to work to become a star.)
- Enrique Iglesias
- LFO
- Lindsay Lohan, Hillary, Jennifer Lopez (and every just about every single crappy actor or actress who is way much worse singer).
- N'SYNC
- Lou Reed
- Limp Bizkit
- Smash Mouth
- Missy Elliot
- Kelly Osbourne
- Cher
- Vanilla Ice
- Kid Rock
- Insane Clown Possee
- Third Eye Blind
- Creed
- Jessica Simpson
- Ja Rule
- Oingo Boingo
- Counting Crows
- Beastie Boys

...and the list goes on and on

Well, that's sort of the joke.

At least William Hung realizes he's performing for a laugh, not like the artists Mr.Jingles79 posted, that actually think they have talent.

Take Enrique off that list. A great talent he is, and such a wonderful voice. Like the music or not, he's still one of the few male voices these days that hits me the right way.

WOOAH. I didn't expect that one from you Guitar Hero.

But I'll take it as a very good joke.

I think is is Major Poo Poo...First of all Insane Clown Posse are very well known for they're Live concerts and there never on t.v or radio so what are you to say about that...Ja Rule may not be good but he sold to many records to say that he sucks...The beastie boys..why are they on the list..there friggin legends and there hilarious too! When I look at this list my first impression is...How retarded is this guy....i dont think william deserves any of the money hes making...He definetely hasnt worked as hard as all these other people...Insane Clown Posse we're selling all of there c-d's by themselves without help frum Big Record companys and even when they did sign with them back in the Great Milenko era the record company still didnt do shit and they still went platinum! Now back to William Hung...all he's done is go on a shitty t.v show and sing horribley and make everyone like him cuz hes ugly and duznt know whats he doing...PEACE

Man, what is so wrong with doing a comedically bad version of a Queen song? Brian produced one himself for 'Bad News'. I don't think it puts a stain on Queen's reputation or anything. It hurts nobody.

The very fact that some Queen songs have become such universally known 'anthems' and are the ones chosen for this sort of thing should be considered an honor.

What I think is worse is a so-called serious attempt at a cover version which turns out really bad. Like Robbie Williams' version. His 'peed my juice' version http://members.cox.net/breakfree/peed_my_juice.mp3 is awful in my opinion. At least Hung sings it with the original words mostly intact.

Lou Reed is just a plain bad singer, so is Bob Dylan. It doesn't matter that they might be good songwriters. They're just awful singers.

I also like Lindsay Lohan a LOT... but only her rack.
Oh wait... it's not even real. I take that back then.

Now back to William Hung...

How many of you guys would turn down $25.000 for a record contract, even when you consciously know that you're a bad singer?

I seriously know that I wouldn't. I know I suck as a singer, and if the way I sing makes people laugh, then good for them.
Besides people are not forced to buy a certain record and listen to it. Also, if someone like William Hung appears on TV or radio, there's always a switch button to press if you don't like it.
