News > Stuck between a 'Rock' and a hard place

Added on 13-Aug-2008

The Chinese have adopted some of the most revered American sporting customs, such as a) cameramen scanning the crowd for hot women and b) playing Queen's "We Will Rock You" during time-outs.

I have heard Freddie Mercury's song, if not his voice, during water polo and basketball contests. (It's a strange version; I don't know who sings it.) It was weirdest at basketball, because Germany was playing Greece at the time and I didn't know who "we" was. Were the Chinese just talking trash for future games?

And has the Chinese Communist Party paid ANY attention to the lyrics?

Buddy you're a young man, hard man

Shoutin' in the street gonna take on the world some day

You got blood on your face

You big disgrace

Wavin' your banner all over the place
