You might want to check your definition of 'bigger than The Beatles'.

Queen have now spent more weeks than The Beatles in the UK single and album charts.

An impressive achievement certainly, but don't forget that Cliff Richard beats Queen with the same criteria, and that as far as global sales and musical and cultural impact go, Queen don't even come close to being 'bigger than The Beatles'.

Only Brian May is bigger than Jesus. The other three Queen band members are all under six-feet tall!

Ever seen Brian with a beard - as in those early Queen LP pictures?

Come to think of it, why have we never seen Brian and Jesus together... I wonder?!!!

Seriously... I bet more people in this world could recite the lyrics of a Queen or Beatles song before a verse of the bible.

Speaking of irrelevant, more people would recognise George W. Satan ..err.. Bush, over say, Tariq Ali.

Also, being No. 1 in the singles chart nowadays is nothing special. You only have to sell a couple of dozen records and you've done it.

Unlike when Queen and the Beatles were in there heyday when you had to sell 100's of 1000's to even stand a chance.

Maybes Queen could do an Elvis and re-release all there singles every week.

Well duh, dumbass.
Their songs are broadcast via public radio to hundreds of thousands of people each and and every day, and have been for the last 30 to 40 years.

If someone was reciting bible verses on the radio, behind a tight hip hop beat, then you may have some competition. :)
