Well, I have been a bit confused with life as of late (a bit personal). My internet also went out for a good three days which in turn made me lose a bit of motivation. BUT ANYWAY ON TO HAPPIER THINGS
Queen, and why I love them. Queen is a classic, I'm willing to bet that everybody has heard them at least once, even the youngsters. I remember visiting my grandparents and if they'd take us somewhere, I didn't know it but I would hear a Queen song playing on their station (you wouldn't believe the nostalgia that hit me when I got Queen's greatest hits.)
Queen has had many classics such as We Will Rock You, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody, there's just too many to name! Their drummer, Roger Taylor, has also been cited as an influence for many (including myself :D). It's hard to actually say what genre they are besides Rock since they've done many, check out Bohemian Rhapsody or Innuende, then Bicycle Race to see what I'm talking about.
Anyhow that's basically Queen, one of (in my opinion) the best bands ever.
