Dustin over at There I Ruined It absolutely annihilates another classic song by turning it into the worst version of itself. His terrible Dixieland jazz version of Queen’s We Will Rock You will certainly have Freddie Mercury turning over in his grave.
THE BEST Queen
Eshan Denipitiya celebrates his love for the music of Queen with a virtuosic medley of tunes performed on a Yamaha grand piano. Watch and listen as his fingers fly across the ivories with classical arrangements of We Will Rock You, Bohemian Rhapsody, and We Are the Champions.
Watch a crowd slowly gather in a UK department store, as then 11-year-old Cole Lam sits down at the store’s grand piano and bangs out an amazing performance of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody that will make you want to sing along like Wayne and Garth. Since recording this video, Cole has continued to step up his game.
Musician Marc Martel is joined by the members of The Ultimate Queen Celebration for an awesome “work from home” cover version of the 1981 track Under Pressure. Martel channels Freddie Mercury brilliantly as always, while guitarist Tristan Avakian brings his own flair to Bowie’s vocals.
Using only the 2002 video game RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 as their canvas, ChuggersRCT managed to create a thrill ride that syncs up perfectly with Queen’s masterful operatic track Bohemian Rhapsody. Sure, the “Galileo” death spiral bit would probably do you in, but you’d be going out in style.
As we’ve previously heard, Marc Martel is one of the only vocalists to ever hit the notes of Queen’s songs as well as Freddie Mercury himself. Here, he lays down an outstanding cover of a song that has a whole new meaning for anyone who’s been locked down in recent months. He also recently did a mean Elton John cover.
Musician Costantino Carrara takes Queen’s iconic 1975 rock opera track and turns it into an equally impressive classical piano piece, packed with wonderful flourishes, and epic transitions. Think you can keep up with Costantino’s fingers? Buy the sheet music here.
Musician Anthony Vincent of Ten Second Songs freely admits he’s not Freddie Mercury, but he still has quite the vocal skills. In this clip he expands on a fan favorite snippet from his Welcome to the Black Parade video, performing the entire song in the style of Queen.
Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody is an incredibly challenging song to play when you have the proper instruments. To prove his bass-playing chops, musician Zander Zon managed to perform a compelling rendition entirely on his bass guitar. We’re amazed that he was able to extract such range from the 4-string instrument.
An amazing recording of the greatest rock vocalist of all time, captured back in 1986 as part of the 96-track Time. With the help of musician and producer Dave Clark, we now get to hear a stripped-down and cleaned up version, backed only by piano, along with HD footage of Mercury which will send chills down your spine.
There’s quite literally something electric in the air with this high voltage performance of Queen’s rock opera. Electronics wiz Fabrício H. Franzoli programmed a duo of solid state Tesla coils to “sing” a portion of the track. His take on Daft Punk is pretty awesome too.
After filling our eyes and ears with some of Queen’s most epic performances of the 1970s, the official Queen channel is back with a reel of the band’s best moments in the decade of Pac-Man and big hair. Despite the controversy, we never thought adding synths hurt their sound.
Funko will soon offer POP! vinyl figures based on Freddie Mercury, Roger Taylor, Brian May, and John Deacon. Freddie gets three outfits – a harlequin jumpsuit, his 1986 Wembley Stadium look, and a FYE exclusive shirtless look based on their 1982 Madison Square Garden shows.
