In a recent Poll for the ABC, people voted for their favourite album. Unfortunatly, there were no Queen albums in the top 10, but this is to be expected since only a few albums before 1980 are truly remembered. A night at the opera was 29th, which i think is good.
Hereis the top 10 for those interested;

1.Pink Floyd — Dark Side of the Moon
2.Jeff Buckley — Grace
3.Radiohead — OK Computer
4.The Beatles — Abbey Road
5.The Beatles — Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
6.Nirvana — Nevermind
7.Led Zeppelin — Four
8.Red Hot Chili Peppers — Blood Sugar Sex Majik
9.Meat Loaf — Bat Out of Hell
10.U2 — Joshua Tree

I am from Melbourne Aus, and i find it interesting why "we will rock you" opened here in melbourne first beofre any where else in the world yet they wont tour here. Plus this Poll was done on ABC, its not the most watched channel, 7, 9 or 10 would of had totaly different results.

If Men At Work's Business As Usual is not on that list, it's a bogus list.

I hope so, I mean Brian came out and did his solo show, so you would think "QUEEN" would sell more tickets than brian,,,even if paul wankers, i mean rogers is on the tour as well.

Thats exactly my view point. I really wanna see roger and brian play. I mean ok, theres no freddie and john, but just to see them two go at it.... When queen came out in 85 here roger through he's drumsticks out to the crowd, my uncle and his mate were there, my unlces mate cought it and gave it to my unlce. Thats pretty cool, i held it in my hand a while and and i saw the drunk marks it had on it, as it was the last song of the night it was obviously WWRK/WOTC that he was playing just before he though them.

Dude... what the hell, why is 4 always picked? Physical Graffitti and Zep 2 are a billion times better! I want to move to australia though... at least Queen gets played more than once a week on the radio...and it's not always we will rock you


Did you mean 4 as in 4th album? NATO???
