I think Queen are quite under rated for who they are. They came up with some of the greatest riffs known to man! I mean We Will Rock You, I don't know one person who doesn't love that song.

And everyone else's favourite Queen songs?

I love their old fashiond stuff such as seaside rondevous, good old fashioned loverboy and lazing on a sunday afternoon!

Only queen would come up with that kind of stuff!

Theres so many great Queen tracks though, it hard to name a favourite.

amazing band that i am proud to commit 100% to on these boards and my cd player :) way to underated in my opinion. all people know are we willrockyou/champs/bohemian/another one bites the dust. there are tons of tracks that i love but most people that say they like them only know those few. in my opinion the band members are most talented EVER in one band

Another one bites the dust is their best song. If you play the chant backwards it sounds like fred is yelling "it's fun to smoke marijuana!"

why are there so many "under-rated" threads? nobody is under-rated because it's all opinion.

on topic, crazy little thing called love is by far my favorite

Since when has Queen been underrated? As far as I know, they get a LOT of attention and are admired by music lovers everywhere. I'm not a huge fan, as I mentioned in another thread, but I respect them. Freddy was a one of a kind vocalist, but their musical style is a little too laid back for me., which is why I prefer Meat Loaf. But under no circumstances are they underrated or a bad band. Everyone I know loves them..

Doesn't that kind of contradict your point? Queen are one of the biggest-selling bands of all time, although I don't enjoy much. Very talented though, and I love Brian May's guitar tone and work. I just don't like how the whole sound comes together.

To a certain degree, they are underrated, but not TERRIBLY underrated. They're still the 3rd best selling artist in the UK and they've sold millions and millions of albums worldwide over the past 30 years. Please, discuss Queen in this thread... http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=315506

Yes, it's really only an illusion that there are people here who like Queen, because those two make 90% of the pro-Queen posts :p:

Kidding aside, they're a good band, have about a cd's worth of songs that I like, and I don't care whether they're overrated or underrated. I prefer to save those words for sports discussions.

Queen is awesome.

I'm pretty sure that anyone can find at least one song that they like.

In the UG circuit, Queen is incredibly overrated if you ask me

Enough of these stupid, pointless "so and so is soooo underrated" crap threads. It's tiring and ridiculous, not to mention contradictory.

And we have enough Queen threads floating around on top of that.

Not really, cos those people only know that song, that's why I feel their under-rated, people just know that song and think they're experts.
