I am sick of hearing WWRY and We Are The Champions in all the playgrounds, stadiums and sport events in the world.

Queen is much more than this. These hymns distort Queen's image. I also skip these songs (and God Save The Queen) in their live albums. I'm tired of them.

When I first heard WWRY and WATC I didn't even know they were Queen songs.. in fact, I probably thought WWRY was a 'Five' song.. I agree that WATC is a beautiful song..

i think it is the same with pretty much all bands/singers (the good ones anyway), their main hit single is not really a reflection of what they are really all about. i think that most of queens greatest songs were never released as singles, but they needed singles like we will rock you and we are the champions to make them a successful band. we will rock you and we are the champions are, while good, are no where near their best songs but it is good they they are atleast recognised by the masses for a song, after all i would probably not have started to listen to queen if i were not already familliar with these songs.

I enjoyed Champions a lot at the Toyota Cup the other night. Even though for me there are a couple of anthems better than that: Kiss`s Raise Our Glasses, and Abba`s Thank You For The Music, albeit in very different situations. So yes for a football match WATC is much better than, say, Hangman, My Melancholy Blues or My Baby Does Me


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Perhaps we should try to introduce new songs that could be sung at football matches. How about 'Save Me' when someone's about to take a penalty ( or 'Misfire' if it's David Beckham )!

Funny. I remember We are the Champions being on a Heineken advertisement. Ironic, innit?

Yeah, so am I, but think of it this way - if not for that particular duo, Queen would have virtually fallen off the map in the under-30 circles of the United States right now. Those songs have the potential to create new fans (first-hand account here). I'm willing to put up with hearing those particular songs ad nauseum if it makes people listen to my favorite band.

Now, I WOULD like to hear those songs in fewer Nissan commercials. But let's not go into that again.


God wants you to send me some money.

When my footballclub scores a goal WWRY is being aired in the stadium. There is no feeling that compares to that. :)
