Queen are a British rock band hailing from London, England. The band consists of Brian May on lead guitar and Roger Taylor on drums, along with former members consisting of John Deacon on bass guitar and iconic frontman and vocalist Freddie Mercury.

After releasing their first two studio albums, titled Queen and Queen II, they would release their third studio album Sheer Heart Attack, consisting of their first breakout hit "Killer Queen," on November 8th, 1974, followed by their second album A Night at the Opera nearly a year later on November 21st, 1975. Released as the lead single of the album, Bohemian Rhapsody would skyrocket Queen's popularity, and prove to be the band's magnum opus and be considered one of the most iconic rock songs of all time (shown below).
The band would go on to release a multitude of studio albums, including, but not limited to, News of the World, which contained sport stadium anthems "We Will Rock You" and We Are the Champions," Jazz, which included other iconic songs in Queen's discography such as "Fat Bottomed Girls" and "Don't Stop Me Now," The Game, containing Billboard Hot 100 #1 songs of "Another One Bites the Dust" and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," and "Innuendo," the last studio album recorded while lead singer, Freddie Mercury, was still alive, before passing away due to health complications caused by AIDS.
Reputation and Legacy
On December 3, 2010, Queen was listed at #52 on Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Artists." Their live performance at Live Aid in 1985 is often cited as one of the greatest live performances in the history of rock music.
The legacy of Queen's discography would inspire the creation of the musical "We Will Rock You," a story about a group of Bohemian rebels looking to restore free thought and media in a dystopian future of conformity. Despite being panned by critics, the musical would have an eleven-year-long run at the West End theater in London, along with performances still active in countries around the world.
On October 24th, 2018, in the United Kingdom, the film "Bohemian Rhapsody" was released in theaters. Directed by Bryan Singer, and later Dexter Fletcher, who finished up the remainder of the production after the former's firing from directorial duties, the film was distributed by 20th Century Fox and stars Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, the film is a biopic drama about the formation of Queen and their history leading up to their 1985 performance at Live Aid. Despite the mixed reception, with praise given to Malek's performance, but criticism towards the screenplay, historical inaccuracies, and handling of Mercury's homosexuality, the film proved to be a box office success, grossing $313 million as of November 16th, 2018, on a budget of $50-55 million.
