Best Queen Hard Rock SongsWell, 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
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
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
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.
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!
A great concert opener!
I like your selection of their harder songs, zxm. - Metal_Treasure
This is my favorite, together with Bohemian Rhapsody. - Metal_Treasure
Awesome song! - Userguy44
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
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.
Unique song. All their genius is embedded in that song. The whole album is amazing
Very underrated. Brian May is amazing in this! - Userguy44
Amazing, should be a hit really
One of their deeper cuts that never really gets mentioned. I love the riff. - Gg2000
How could anyone forget this? This is one of their heavier songs! - Userguy44
Bohemian Rhapsody is a fantastic song, but not hard rock. This however, is.
This song is overlooked on most lists. Stripped down, good groove, crunchy and screaming guitars. One of my favorite, hard-rocking’ Queen tunes!
