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 Hammer to Fall Hammer to Fall Cover Art

I've always loved this song, back in the far, far years of 1923, I listened to the song "Hammer to Fall." However, the problem was that this song was in it's early days and not many people liked it. They enjoyed ragtime and stuff more than the heavy guitars of "Hammer to Fall." But now as a 116 year old man I enjoy how the youngens are enjoying the music of old.

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

My favourite - zxm

2 Stone Cold Crazy Stone Cold Crazy Cover Art

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

Early thrash metal!

The first trash-metal song written by Freddie Mercury.

Amazing song. - Userguy44

3 I Want It All I Want It All Cover Art

The guitar solo is lit

Lol the intro though

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.

4 Bohemian Rhapsody Bohemian Rhapsody Cover Art

This isn't a hard rock song. The first three minutes are a ballad, then the next minute is opera, and then we get to LESS THAN A MINUTE of hard rock, and then the last minute is back to a ballad. It doesn't count as a hard rock song when less than a sixth of it is hard rock. - Aweso

It's mostly opera rock. - Userguy44

Best song of all time!

5 Tie Your Mother Down Tie Your Mother Down Cover Art

A great concert opener!

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

6 The Show Must Go On The Show Must Go On Cover Art

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

Awesome song! - Userguy44

7 Liar Liar Cover Art

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


8 Sheer Heart Attack Sheer Heart Attack Cover Art

It sounds like punk - Userguy44

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

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.

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