It happens. And it happens to me...in fact not so much anymore but it used to...when I was REALLY young. I'm the same age as you are now: 15 but I've liked Queen for quite a while and I remeber in my younger years of school poeople used to tease me. To some degree people still do now...because they don't understand why i like Queen so much. But I met my most amazing and wonderful boyfriend through Queen...I mean in that respect...It's not too shabby *does cheesy grin* :)

To Hell with what other people think. It's your life. If YOU like Queen, Then, By all means, Enjoy Queen! Who would they rather you listen to anyway? Hillary Duff?

Liking Queen is not sad...

Thinking that liking Queen is sad, is FUCKIN' SAD.
If I was a member of Queen, I wish I didn't have fans like that.

Those, who say that stupid things, have no taste of musik .
Maby they are good and nice people, but in the way they tell you, you should have the same taste as they, they are just stupid:)
My friends have Alrady put up with the fact, that I'm a fan of an "dreadful, old rockband with(or without) a dead and gay leadsinger"...

rock on and don't give up QUEEN;)

When I was a 15-year-old Queen fan back in 1990, I too was teased about my liking such an “old” band, and when Freddie died in 1991 the teasing only got worse… my life was made a living hell that November day… However, all that teasing only strengthened my resolve and I believe that if you get enjoyment and pleasure from Queen’s music then that is all that matters. What has it got to do with anyone else? I know all those ignorant comments are hurtful, but at the end of the day that's all they are - ignorant comments from ignorant people.

Maybe I have got chance, but my best friends started to listen Queen after I did. Few years ago, after a summer holidays I came to my class and told them I heard a voice of the greatest singer of the world. I was surprised, but they were animated after we watched together my favourit, I want to break free video. I still love Queen the most, but they are happy when we are listening them together. And if someone is not I always start to dance and speak like Freddie did and everybody is laughing. You should make the same. Tell them how wonderful are Queen songs and show them for example aforementioned I want to break free. I presume they will fall in love with Freddie like we did! And if not, they have not got a good feeling for music. Keep on mind it! You are right if you love Freddie. I think he is very outstanding.

You should get a girlfriend anyway. More people like Queen in the world than almost any other artist.

Queen have provided the roots for much of the market currently. its upsetting to see how much such great musical influences have churned out a load of shite in the majority of new artists today... they obviously weren't listening to the music properly
therefore NO you are not sad, but maybe a little attention-seeking :-P

Eh NO!! Okay maybe being OBSESSED with Queen-their music, the members lives, Freddie, is a tad bit sad- but not their music. You have the right to listen to whatever music you like . But you should get a girlfriend. Definitly.Then you can spread Queenmania to more people!!!;-) Im 15 too but people in my year in school have all accepted Queen. At first no one knew who they were but by naming off a few classics- We are the champions, we will rock you- people were surprised and impressed that Queen wrote such songs. People will always be a bit prejudiced about Freddie and his death from AIDS (at least people my age)- some of my so-called friends sneered when they found out this, but all you can say is fuck them because they're just racist,ignorant fools. Don't be put off Queen because they dont have a new release in the top ten along with tripe like Crazy Frog. People our age will always be mocked for liking 'old bands'. So just fuck them darling...but get a girlfriend while you're at it.

Only today did I hear a group of 12-15 year olds running in the street playing about and as they past my window and ran chasing each other down the street they all burst out into a short blast of I Want To Break Free.

Of course liking Queen isn´t sad, it´s great!! You could say liking Queen is an adquired taste, not all people like it.
I think your ``friends´´ are very ignorant, and they have no right to judge the music that you listen to. They probably have prejudice against Queen because it ``was a gay band´´, or something...
Conclusion: Either friends aren´t very bright,or they say stuff without thinking first.

Look,I'm 16,I love Queen and many of my classmates and friends telling me:''Come on now!Queen???God help you!!!''
And do you know what I do? IGNORE THEM
These people don't have a clue of what real music is plus they're jerks(sorry!!!)They believe that by following the others is cool but some times is not! Don't worry listening to Queen isn't sad at all.Also,you have the right to listen whatever you want.
