Yes, one of the most underrated songs of the royal catalogue.

One of the few political too (with Put out the fire)... Strangely, again about America.

Is the Brian the first Michael Moore ? ;-)

I love that song. Very heavy and very political, but it's actually always been one of my favorites on A Day At The Races.

Definately the worst track on that album. The music isn't horrible, but it's not great either. The words are completely ridiculous.

The song rocks and I liked the versions on the ADATR and NOTW tours where it was paired with The Prophet's Song after Freddie's vocal solos on the ADATR and NOTW tours and Brian's guitar solos on the NOTW tour.

I'm sorry, I really don't like the song. It goes on way too long and although I agree with the political message of the song I can't stand the guitar or drums in it.
