in the printed insert to my VHS copy of this, it says the first two vids are we will rock you, and we will rock you(fast) and give a little description for each version of that song. but the tape has just the slow studio verison and then moves on to we are the champs. is my video missing something, or was that just a labeling error on the vhs insert. (i have the u.s. version)

I recall reading that myself over a decade ago (or whenever it was I got the VHS). From what I can assume, it's just a misprint - the fast version of WWRY didn't appear on any kind of video until 2002.

Yeah, but this is for the US version of Greatest Hits released in 1992:

Perhaps when I said that WWRY fast didn't appear on any video before, I miswrote what I said. As far as I know, it appeared on the UK and US versions of Greatest Flix in 1981, but when that US version was deleted in favor of the 1992 Greatest Hits, it didn't appear on there (perhaps they were intending on putting it in there anyway?) - instead, US fans had to wait until 2002 for Greatest Video Hits 1 for WWRY fast.

Sorry for any confusion.
