Queen’s 1977 classic We Will Rock You is one of rock and roll’s (and sports’) greatest anthems. So the idea of a cover version is kind of sacrilege. But we’ll give this 1981 version a pass, since it was recorded by Queen themselves, and gives the song a whole different flavor.
Jimmy Fallon and the Roots join an all-star lineup of vocalists including Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Ariana Grande, Sam Smith, Meghan Trainor, One Direction, Usher and the mighty Christina Aguilera to sing the Queen classic.
David A Scott, Jr. (aka “DJ Davyjones”) put together this unlikely mashup of tracks from Queen and The Monkees that had us scratching our heads at the start, but quickly reaches a level of brilliance.
Today would have been the 65th birthday of Queen frontman and vocal genius Freddie Mercury. Google pays tribute to his artistry and showmanship with this awesome animated Google Doodle tribute.
This little rocker is watching Queen’s epic Live Aid performance and gamely joins the crowd in following Freddie Mercury’s lead. Good thing he wasn’t watching an Iggy Pop concert.

Time for your midday zen moment: Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, arranged for four violins and performed by Joe Edmonds. Quite beautiful, and also good for karaoke practice. (Thanks Martyn!)
