I was watching the simpons tonight and Homer was lying on a bean bag drinking beer and there was a poster of A Night At The Opera on the wall. and the song goes
"...I stayed up listening to Queen"

And then Homer was in the boat that time singing "I am the champion"

Then there was that time when he was singing "Big spender" on the table.

What other Queen related simpsons things can you think of?

"Big Spender" is not Queen song. And I don't think the man has to be Queen fan!

Big Spender isn`t a proper Queen connection. Queen is just one of the bands who covered it. Simpsons have three Queen connections so far, I think: Champions in the one with that huge fish (General Sherman?), the Opera poster, and You`re My Best Friend in one recent (=mediocre) episode.

But that doesn`t mean Matt is a Queen fan. Those references are put there just in a way that he demonstrates he notices Queen existed, as well as references to tons of other artists and actors/actresses, political celebrities and film characters are included.

Btw some Friends/Queen connections: the message in the answerphone of they guys in TOW Ross Moves In ("we will we will call-you-back"), and We Are The Champions at the piano bar in TOW Monica Sings.


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.

Homer wasn`t a Queen fan. He stayed up listening to Queen, but that doesn`t say anything. I listen a lot to Blink 182 but that doesn`t make me a fan. When I`m drunk I play some Shakira songs in the guitar but I`m not a fan, and I often watch Bangles videos as well, and it doesn`t mean anything. Those girls are hot.

I mean, were. Now they`re in their forties and their good looks haven`t been dimminished ... they just dissapeared.

I don't think Matt Groening even writes the Simpsons any more. I don't think has since pretty early on in its life.

I'm sure though Homer was a Queen fan in his younger days... I would not stay up listening to a band if I weren't a fan. Also, the poster of A Night At the opera on the wall indicates that. I would not want a poster on my wall of something I would not cherish...

So, YES, Homer (at least) was a Queen fan.

Exactly!
Check out the DVD commentaries.
Homer IS meant to be a Queen fan.
They were establishing his tastes.

Well anyone playing We are the Champions or We Will Rock You doesn't really have to be a Queen fan because like Brian said People have forgotten that someone actually wrote those songs. They just became such anthems that I don't think many people know that they are Queen songs.

hahah funny site btw. That's cool Brian May is a Simpson's fan. And it's cool Matt G is a Queen fan. Another reason the guy rules ::bows down::
