Go to this link and wait until Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand's singer) explains who influences him the most. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2lp1blCph8
Who said the best indie band can't be influenced by Queen?
In their second album, there is a song called "Fade together" which reminds me a lot to Queen.
What do you think? It's amazing how new bands like Franz or the Scissor Sisters (both totally different kinds of music) are influenced by our dear Queen. It's great!
