Britney Spears, Beyonce and Pink have teamed up on a new version of the Queen hit We Will Rock You. The pop divas re-recorded the song with the remaining members of Queen. They have performed it specially for a new Pepsi advert in which they play Roman gladiators.

Guitarist Brian May said: "It was fantastic that they wanted to use We Will Rock You as the track.

"It was a big thrill - Britney Spears, Beyonce and Pink singing a Queen track, I got to play guitar and Roger Taylor got to play drums. It couldn't have been more fun."

Pepsi says the girls have brought their own unique style to the new version, which was recorded in Rome. The three will be flying in to London next month for the advert's global premiere.

(What's next? Aguilera, Sugababes & Whitney Houston to cover Nothing Else Matters? Brrr... - Zappp)

Thanks Ananova for reporting this crazy thing.

    who in the sweet loving f*** allowed this to happen? Why in the hell are they doing this? I thought the pop crowd would have learned that some songs should not be remade (I still want Limp Bizkit to DIE after that whole Behind Blue Eyes debacle)... sonsof...

    ...Freddie Mercury rolls over in his grave. As if I needed another reason to hate Britney Spears, or thought that I was capable of disliking her more. What a presumptuous little *****. Just when I thought she was over, she goes and "covers" a song by Queen. A great song has been tainted by a despicable pop tart...Why did it have to be Queen?! Couldn't she have screwed up a Journey song or something? Her vocal skills are nonexistent and and somehow she brainwashed Brian May into supporting her. When will this nightmare end?

    but they'll keep doing it because all the people who like britney anyway will think it's "funny" or "cute". friggin' pop stars...
    matttt
    i agree with john, the bassist from queen just leave it. apparently brian, roger and john were meant to do something with robbie williams but john said that would ruin the queen song. he was quite right.

    As soon as I am old enough I will become President. Then I will decree that no perverted "pop star" will deface timeless classics and if they do, they will get shot. In the face.

    So well might we add... She certainly rocked me, that video was too hardcore for mtv.

    oh well. It's the shittiest Queen song anyway. They can do whatever they want to that piece of crap. Now if they touched REAL classics like Bohemian Rhapsody or Killer Queen, then I'd be pissed off.
    nasty_santa409
    Oh, HELL NO!!! lets see what she's ruined so far... I can't get no satisfaction I love Rock & Roll and now we will rock you? this is just terrible. if britney covers any more of this, then I will start an assassin movement. who wants 2 join?
    guitardude72565

    This sucks! Brittney needs to knock it off! Leave our songs alone! p.s. Is it true that Dolly Parton did a cover of Stairway To Heaven?
    MetalheadBuddha
    HAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAHAHAH.... ..omg, this is gonna be horrible. Why wont Britany understand that she CANNOT relate to rock 'n' roll? Shes a complete ditz! Some people should be put outta their misery. I'll join the assassain movement, if i get first dibs at Britany. Hopefully, no "divas" will cover any of the good ol' BLue Oyster Cult songs. If anyone does, thats it.
