Best Queen Hard Rock Songs

Well, we all know Queen is one of the best rock band ever. Queen is a rock band, but there are some great hard rock songs by Queen. Here's some of them. Please add more.

The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody

It's mostly opera rock. - Userguy44

2 Hammer to Fall

Awesome song. Great riffs and amazing vocals by Freddie. Should be first. - Userguy44

My favourite - zxm

3 Stone Cold Crazy

Awesome song that influenced many heavy metal bands and covered by Metallica.

The first trash-metal song written by Freddie Mercury.

Early thrash metal!

4 I Want It All

One of my favourite.

I Want It All is probably one of the more underrated songs on this list, along with Liar and March of the Black Queen (though MOTBQ is waay more underrated). I'm actually glad that this song is in the top 5, because on other lists, this song doesn't quite reach the top 10ers (it misses out by just a few spots).

The chord progression is so simple, yet it works so well. One of the reasons this song was overlooked was because it was heavily synth-orientated and was released on The Miracle, which didn't receive any live performance attention during the time Freddie was alive. This would have been one of Queen's live gems. It is also one of the heaviest Queen songs, and Brian's double-time guitar solo is AMAZING.

I listens to this on Halloween

5 We are the Champions

This song speaks to all of us and our daily struggles. It gives us hope and courage to go forward and fight like the champions that we are.

6 Sheer Heart Attack

It sounds like punk - Userguy44

Oh yes, this song is pretty hard and... heavy. - Metal_Treasure

7 Tie Your Mother Down

This one is good too. I like Queens hard rock songs! - Userguy44

I like your selection of their harder songs, zxm. - Metal_Treasure

8 The Show Must Go On

This is my favorite, together with Bohemian Rhapsody. - Metal_Treasure

Awesome song! - Userguy44

9 Ogre Battle
10 Liar

The best song from Queen I, easily. 6 and a half minutes of perfection, going through multiple phases with monstrous guitar riffing. If you haven't listened to it then do so as soon as possible - dubsinthetubs


The Newcomers

? Death on Two Legs
? White Man

One of their deeper cuts that never really gets mentioned. I love the riff. - Gg2000

12 We Will Rock You
13 Dead on Time

Very underrated. Brian May is amazing in this! - Userguy44

19 Son and Daughter
20 Great King Rat
21 Tear It Up

Bohemian Rhapsody is a fantastic song, but not hard rock. This however, is.

22 The Hitman

How could anyone forget this? This is one of their heavier songs! - Userguy44
