Queen have been named as the 5th biggest band ever in the UK music magazine 'Q' The placings were based on biggest album sales, their biggest headline gig and weeks appearing in the UK album and singles charts.
The write up for Queen is "Freddie Mercury's theatrical rockers did everything bigger. Their early hits package was a top 100 fixture for most of the 80's, putting them second only to the Beatles in chart longevity. Even in retirement they're ubiquitous: Queen musical We Will Rock You has opened in theatres in London, Australia, Japan, Canada, Italy, South Africa and even the USA.
