Whereas you're clearly only here because you are hard of thinking...

Its amazing how some people can be so rude...

Anyway, I think Queen were amazing musicians. I basically like them because they were true musicians. They weren't fakes. They were the real deal.

I think that the reason why Queen's awesome is because they're fantastic musicians. Not only that, they were four well educated guys who were dedicated to the group and were also very close friends. Yes they had their arguements, but that's what made them even closer and kept the group together for over 30 years. Also, all of their songs sound so different. No 2 songs sound the same. They weren't afraid to take risks and dabble with different forms of music either. Now tell me, what other rock band wrote and sang songs with a Vaudeville feel or an Operatic feel? This is what made them the awesome group that they were.

Queen is special to me because I grew up with them. I was born in 1987, so I missed out on seeing them in concert. But, my cousin who used to babysit me had all of their concerts that were released on video and their albums. She would bring them to my house and we would sit on the couch and watch the concerts. I would always compliment Freddie on how pretty he was. She also would play "Love of My Life" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" and Freddie would sing me to sleep. Another reason why they're so special to me is because I can relate to each of the band members in some way. Also, their songs have helped me thru some really rough times in my life.

So, those are my opinions on Queen. They're the greatest band in the land and I'll love them till the day I die!!!


I love John Deacon and Brian May!!!

The reason I love Queen is that their songs don't all sound similar, unlike most other music. Because they were all 4 totally different personalities, they managed to create some really awesome diverse stuff that you possibly cannot get bored of. If you don't feel like headbanging, you can listen to Jealousy, if you do, then listen to Sheer Heart Attack. If you feel like singing, listen to Somebody To Love, if not, listen to Bijou. It's terrific!

i love Queen cos they're so distinctive. and their style of music was always changing with the times. they we're very good musicians, and they worked hard and vigorously. they were great performers on stage -- most bands arent even remotely good on stage compaired to their studio recordings. they were brilliant. simple as that. musically and intelegent-wise. they all finished college (Brian finished college but not his doctorate, which i heard he's going to go finish soon), which proves that you can be smart and be a rock star. most teenagers just drop out of school cos they think that's what rock stars do, which isn't true at all.

and besides, they're all cute. xD

Queen is the first band that i liked all the members. not once have i found a band where i liked every member before Queen.

I <3 my dear Queen because they are such a unique, amazing, good-sounding, and beautiful band...Their music is VERY optimistic and very cheery. Their songs...no matter what opinions are held...Even the worst of them...SOUND GOOD. That's enough in my book...EVERY SINGLE ONE...Just look at Sweet Lady...or She Makes Me...You can't tell me that they aren't bareable....They are VERY much bearable...and ALL of them have a good element to them. The music itself is very helpful when a person is in a depressed mood, which occurs very often in my case. They have their own style. They are very attractive...I mean...seriously...who wouldn't (boy or girl) want to see 4 good looking men in tight trousers and unisuits? :P...with make-up on *drool*...But..that is beside the point, you see. -_-...I got a little carried away there...I guess Queen is so good because they have amazing musical talent. In other bands...there is (sometimes) something lacking. If the voice is lacking....then the band isn't really too well put together...(which isn't Queen's case :D). Bands like Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Our own Queen, Pink Floyd, the Scorpions, Kansas, Supertramp, Alice Cooper etc etc...They are good because all of the fields needed to complete a band are filled in and nothing is lacking. I mean (off topic...but an example) Look at Led Zeppelin. Great singer : Robert Plant Amazing drummer: John Bonham..One of the greatest most legendary guitarists: Jimmy Page and a wonderful bassist: John Paul Jones. This is what creates a good band. Look at Queen:

Brian May: AMAZING, SUPER, FUCKING AWESOME guitarist, keyboard-ist (lol), composer

Freddie Mercury: FUCKING SPECTACULAR SINGER, Composer, pianist, etc.

John Deacon: Excellent bassist, Great composer

Roger: Fucking awesome drummer, (and don't kill me) VERY GOOD composer (in some people's views)...

Now...it is this "chemistry" between the four lads that creates a good band. With Freddie's angelic voice......etc. etc.

Let's take another example...shall we? A band called Mott The Hoople. Now...many of you might have heard of them....They are a band that have a great influence on Queen...well HAD a great influence. From like 1972-1974 or something. Now...in my opinion....The voice lacks. The instruments are excellent, but the voice isn't really good enough (in my opinion, again)...For me, that band is really average sounding compared to Queen. Other bands, like Pink Floyd and Scorpions have a good foundation and base. and I am now rambling on again, but I am bored...as usual...and it is a sick stay-home-from-fucking-high-school day for me....so being stuck with a fever and rambling on is my specialty, ladies and queens. :DDDD


Besides...I'm getting bored and I want a smoothie...

^____^


Hot Space 4 lyf dawgs. OOH! Goodie...another title to be discussed....Screw the smoothie..^___^ I just wanted to say:

DAMN YOU PEOPLE WHO DON'T LIKE HOT SPACE. Of course that was a joke. Don't take it personally...I am sick ;_; hehe...But what I meant to say was that HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKE HOT SPACE??????????? O_O It's so well combined....muscially and in cases of genre...Hehe...Well I'll stop complaining now and go get that smoothie...*giggle-snort-giggle*

You are all so young it's great to hear the enthusiasim of a new generation of Queen fans. I have been a fanatic since the first time my brother played The prophet song. I sat in amasement, and played it over and over again. Then my brother took me to see that show in 76 I have been hooked ever since.I have seen them 16 times including Jacksonville this year. There are many reasons why Queen effects us all, Freddie's voice, Brian's guitar is what got me I have never heard anything like it even to this day' it is so unique. They are awesome live, and so much fun, they don't take it so seriusly; like the Who or Zepplin, who take three years to get it right.Queen was spontainious.It takes a special person to stand up and say Queen is the best "God Bless You ALL"

Um, have you misunderstood the definition of a public message board, or are you just stupid?

Judging by your use of a homosexual term as a derogatory reference on a Queen board, I'd conclude that it's both.

In which case...up your arse...

...unless of course you're being critical, in which case we'll all cry, because our threads are FAR too precious to be interfered with.

Mr Head, I don't recognise your name, therefore I assume you're new. You may in fact be old but change your name due to a small attention span, I don't know. Or care. But if you're going to try to mince words with me, at least apply some logical justification.

I was rude about your thread because it seemed fatuous to discuss something that everyone present would agree with.

You were rude about me as some knee jerk pavlovian reaction.

Being objective, which is the intelligent position? Take your time....

I'm stupid! Yes! He's figured it out ladies and gents! The all obnoxious Penetration_Guru has done it again! Behold, the anti-christ!

By the way, just curiousity, how do you connect Queen with being gay? I mean come on! I'm hardly prejudice at all, fag is a term used a lot nowadays! It has nothing to do with the gay world darling! But I do! Tee-hee!

You'll get no glory out of me you twit! So go back to your Queen collection and wack off to Body Language! You know you want to! Thats if you're a guy! For god's sake, you neglected to determine if you were a guy or a girl on your profile! Which only leads me to the assumption that you're a transexual, or you can't determine the difference between male or female! I get a lot of laughs at you Penetration_Guru, no really, I'm not at all mad at you. I just think it is great how a newbie like me was able to piss off an old timer on this site. You're showing your weakness Mr. Guru, and I hope this verbal fight of words can continue...its so amusing!

So what are you waiting for you asshole! Hit me with your best shot! See if I fucking care!

Ive been regularly checking this board for 5 some years. If i've learned anything, it's that penetration_guru is indeed a rude guy. Ignore him if he bothers you, he'll get over it. I believe he says his ridiculous statements to get people's attention and add meaning to his life.

Anyway,
I really feel Queen is one of the best bands ever, if not the best. I also feel it will take a while for people to realize this, especially in the USA. Their music came at you from all angles, just when you thought you had them figured out, they threw in a curveball or two. In a way, it kept them interesting from a musical sense and not monotonous like some of your typical bands (beatles). I think proof of their greatness are the recent bands that do Queen covers such as MCR and the used. I feel the world will someday appreciate Queen and Freddie in the same manner that they appreciate the beatles and lennon. These were very influential people, I know, but they set the stage for a more talented group, Queen.

I think Queen is a great band and one of the best things that ive discovered. i mean Queens music can either make you laugh or cry and you never know what the song has in stock for you ( unless youv'e heard it before) and its just unique and one of a kind.
