The Top Ten

Bohemian Rhapsody
I gotta say that this song has it all! No band has ever came close to touching Queen.. EVER! I would pick any Queen song over anyone else. For the Top Ten Rock Bands list in this site... Really Metallica over Queen----WHAT A JOKE! Metallica doesn't even come anywhere close to Queen.
The crowd goes insane every time Freddie Mercury starts off the song. I love this song a lot, but my favorite is Somebody to Love.

4We Are the Champions
This wins!
Borhap might be the most famous but that does not make it the best live.
This one is great live and Freddie always has insane power when performing this one. Its great in london 1979.

7Under Pressure
They're ALL the best songs! Any Queen song ROCKS! But, since Under Pressure was my first introduction to the greatest band on the planet, I'll have to go with that as the best, although I would take Any Queen song over everyone else in the world! Particularly their lesser known gems! They are a treasure trove of ecstasy! If only people knew them for those favored by avid Queen fans, rather than just their 'hits'! Their hits are great, but the eclectic variety of their repertoire is absolutely astounding! Queen shines above everyone else and blows them clear out of the water with their versatility and range.
Their shows were not a rehash of their songs, but a theatrical event. Freddie's magic captured every soul in the audience and had them all in the palm of his hands. A genius like no other, before, since, or ever again!


This is it. It's hard to do Bohemian Rhspsody live. This is the one song where all the instruments could be playing at the same time, so musically this is the best live song. Mercury also always gave a great vocal performance if this song, even when he had problems with his voice (SNL in 1982). It's also probably their second best song behind Bohemian Rhapsody. But I'm biased and everyone has their own favorite. Radio Ga Ga is also great live.

Long Live Queen! Long Live the King of Queen!
The thing I like most about queen is that they are unique. Hearing this song live is captivating

The Contenders

11Radio Ga Ga
I love when the crowd claps their hands every time the verse of the song Radio Ga Ga comes in and during the whole song the audience can't stop clapping their hands and I think this song is their best performance ever because if you can get the crowd to cheer along to your song while saying Radio Ga Ga every time the crowds starts clapping that is amazing and genii, and remarkable, plus fascinating.
"And all of the crowd just raises their hands, starts clapping at the beats, and the rest is history. "
Yeah, I made that up. But I still love Queen. You should see this live at Wembley, July 11th, 1986, during the Magic Tour.
Should be at least close behind We are the champions and we will rock you
Concerning borhap I always felt like the a-capella part that wasn't played live disturbed the feeling of the whole song performance
