Bohemian Rahpsody # 163? no Crazy little, UP, AOBTD, WWRY, WATC, YMBF? I don't understand why RS magazine are so Anti-Queen. I mean, what do they consider "GREATEST"? If you go to any NFL, NHL, MLB, NBA game you hear WWRY. You see a reality show (Rockstar:INXS) and they perform BO RAH several times. WATC is a worldwide anthem for sports...Anyways, it was probably discussed before but I needed to let it out before I choke!

RS is a weak publication. Only to be out done by Hollywood Records. I went through the entire latest issue & there was no ad for ROTC.

I don't like that song. But it cannot be number one. What is the most well known song in the world? There's your number one...

Rolling Stone has always been a garbage magazine. Here's a great post once written by Arlene about them:

"Most of their writers are very slanted and what they write or cover (or don't cover) is very biased and based on politics, trends, money, etc.

R.S. has had a running war with Queen since the 1970's. It is virtually impossible for them to say anything of merit, or to even be civil to Queen.

When R.S. reviewed Queen's live South American show in the 80's,...the infamous one that pissed off Roger so bad he wrote them an angry letter on an airline sickness bag...

...the idiot writer from R.S. based his review..on Queen's SOUNDCHECK. How freakin' unprofessional is that? No band is gonna sound good at a soundcheck. THAT's WHY it's called a souncheck. To hammer out and rehearse any glitches in the performance, the instruments, the soundboard, etc.

FYI too. Most of the so called ''GREAT' long term writers for R.S. aren't even trained journalists with college journalism degrees. They all started out as 15, 16 year old kids and groupies in the 1960's hanging out with rockers and the R.S. original ''office'' was a hippy hang out pad in San Fransisco.

It's not like other newspapers or magazines where you have to have a degree and experience in journalism.

And...if for any reason you are on the SH*t list of Publisher/Founder/Editor In Chief Jann Wanner...R.S. will nail your ass to the wall.

If you are on the good side of Jann Wanner...you get continuous glowing coverage even if your music...or film, book, whatever is utter SHITE!!!!"

It's quite ironic that that had 'like a rolling stone' and a song by the rolling stones as the top 2 when the magazine is the rolling stone. ha ha, they were all probably too stoned when they wrote the list to appreciate GOOD music like Queen!

To Chamo25,
You make a really good point about how strange the "Rolling Stone" list of greatest songs was. I think that the problem with it, if I remember, was that it did not really sample a large number of people. As a result, I think that the results were really not statistically significant.

On the other hand, I think that we should all complain when shit like this happens. If enough people wrote in letters complaining, RS would get the message that it is not OK to ignore Queen.

Since RS tries to be so politically correct, I wonder why they are not ashamed about downplaying the contributions of a group whose lead singer was a gay man who died of AIDS. I think that if a lot of people wrote letters in complaint the next time something like this happens, they would probably publish one of them (I've had editorial letters published) and they would probably be more careful the next time.

Rolling Stone are anti-Queen, anti-Pink Floyd and anti-Rush. The only old RS reviewers that liked PF were Anthony DeCurtis, David Fricke and Kurt Loder. Loder gave The Wall and The Final Cut favorable reviews and he also liked David Gilmour's About Face despite hating Roger Waters' Pros and Cons. RS is now Bitchney Sneers and phlEghMINEM and Pisstina Aquafina central! Fuck RS!

Hello, everyone...
Rolling Stone panders like noone else. The list is politically correct. I mean, just like VH1 there are x% of minority songs in the top 100, there are representatives from different genres of music, etc. Obviously, the list is formulaic, uncreative and manufactured with the intentions of highlighting music through the decades.
Also, a 500 list of all time is impossible as these are all popular singles in the states only. Personally, I think many album cuts are better than singles. So, read it if you're bored, take it with a grain of salt, and laugh anf mock RS to their face and behind their back.
