Depending on where you're playing, you might want to play some of the more popular songs by some of those bands.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

For some odd reason I think the vocals are going to be terrible. Not bashing you or anything, but if you can sing like Freddy Mercury you shouldn't be playing crappy cover gigs with your dad and brother.

Its pretty good.
But it depends on the audience, are the audience younger or older?

Yeah depending where you're playing you might want to play a few more recognizable songs that people who aren't big fans of the band will know.

We usually like to open with something more upbeat. Perhaps not about a sad lonely death in a car crash...

Other than that, it depends on who you're crowd is. Do you want people to dance? (Then change every song except closing time). Do you want people to sing along? What age group? You have a songs that appeal to all demographics. For example nobody under the age of 40 is going to get really into that particular Queen song. Also no adults will really enjoy the Pumpkins song. They're all good songs, don't get me wrong. But it seems like a randomly tossed together list. Decide what you want to accomplish, then choose songs to best fit that.

Good luck

Unless you want everyone to completely fall asleep, I suggest some picker-upers. You got a Bassist, drummer and yourself on guitar, play some Tool dang it. Some punk songs too.

Your a bit all over the shop man. People won't want to hear random songs from big name bands from a cover band. Its ok for the actual band because they wrote the song, but people expect to hear popular songs from cover bands.

I would throw in something upbeat that everyone knows. Maybe some Nirvana that isn't Smells Like Teen Spirit. It is a dance so throw in something like Drain You (which is the 2nd best song Cobain ever wrote, right behind Aneurysm). Or even a Foo Fighters song if that is too alternative.

But seriously, I have my doubts you can play Brian May guitar and sing Freddy Mercury vocals.

I would start with "Today" simply because of that opening tune. Then again, I'm not a gigging musician so my opinion is worthless anyways.

I don't see bohemian rhapsody in that "list" of yours. What kind of list is it if there's no bohemian rhapsody in it?
