This was THE YEAR that took over the world!! And in a spiritual way Fred is still holding us all together.What would this planet be like if we never had the privledge of hearing such glorius music and thanks be to the creator we can still do so. Long live QUEEN. Oh and Fred if your reading this thank you I love you. - gerrywalsh

Queen release A Night at the Opera (#1 UK), released Bohemian Rhapsody, one of the best selling songs of all time, Brillian Album too. - allqueen

1991 was a very bad year for Queen. Not their music-- Freddie died this year. They lost the greatest and most beloved member of the family.

2 1974

This was the year when Queen had the Sheer Heart Attack album which features my personal favorites Brighton Rock and Killer Queen - KillerQueen1774

Queen got their first hit, Queen II reached #5 in UK, Killer Queen reached #2 in the UK, Queen released Sheer Heart Attack which reached #2 in the UK and they released two outstanding albums and had a major world tour. - allqueen

3 1985

This is the year they did LIVE AID and this is also the year where they went KABOOM on everything! Sadly, this is also the year where Freddie found that he was HIV positive but he still carried on and that's what makes this year even greater is because Freddie seemed to be unaffected by it's deathly after effects. Sigh, he was truly the best.

Queen play Live Aid to the largest worldwide audience to date, re-vitalise the band and send their albums clogging up the album charts all over the world. - hillerbees

The year they did live aid! 20 minutes that changed music.

4 1977

News of the World, We Will Rock You and We are the Champions - allqueen

5 1991

I wish I could remember what album it was on, or even what song, but at one point Freddie says something to the effect of 'I'm gonna make my mark from the edge of the world, and before his death, the infinite 'they' knew his name from pole to pole. - Queen-aholic

Queen release Innuendo and many other singles and top the UK charts many times but Freddie Mercury Passed Away - allqueen
