Best Queen Songs

Queen are a seminal English rock band, formed in 1970 in London by John Deacon, Brian May, Freddie Mercury and Roger Taylor. Britain's most successful band of the past three decades, the band rose to prominence during the mid-to-late 1970s and still retain a large international fan base. This is a list of Queen's all time greatest songs.

The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody Bohemian Rhapsody Cover Art

The Perfect Queen song, along with Somebody to love and march of the black Queen

There is no competition.
"So you think you can stop me and spit in my eye?! "

This song expresses a difference of music style and it's great...

This song is overrated. It's fantastic and I admire it a lot, but sometimes it's treated as the only Queen song that matters when it comes to "All-Time Best Lists", which is pretty annoying. Plus I honestly don't think it's Queen's best song. It's still a top 10 in their entire discography because let's be honest, it's nigh-impossible to hate it.

2 Don't Stop Me Now Don't Stop Me Now Cover Art

I absolutely love this song - Freddie is in his finest form on this track and you can tell he absolutely loves singing it - he ROCKS it! Lyrically excellent, ahead of it's time (like most Queen songs), timeless and as fresh today as the day the track was laid down - Freddie was a true genius, best voice in the business and this shows it in all it's glory - miss you every day Freddie, so glad you can visit me every time I hear your voice... RIP to the best EVER

This song is amazing. The tune is great, the lyrics are amazing and Freddy's voice is top notch in this epic song. Definetely one of the best ever.

This is my #2 favorite by Queen forever. I can't get sick of it! Amazing vocals, makes you want to dance, awesome instrument stuff, it's mind blowing!

All though it never did much on the charts back when it was released in the 70's it has transcended trough the years to become one of their biggest hits. The song itself makes you feel untouchable, one of a kind.

3 The Show Must Go On The Show Must Go On Cover Art

In my opinion Freddie Mercury's greatest vocals is portrayed in this song. So I vote this up

The best song ever is so powerfull you feel and understand the suffering he have but then he try to calm you but is hard to lose someone so talented. we miss you freddy...

Absolutely awesome song! The combination of Freddie's vocals, Brian's Guitar and Roger's drums is just epic!

This is what I'd call Queen's best song and it's among my favourite songs of all time. I've hardly ever heard a song that's so engaging and inspirational. Sadly, it's a swan-song, given Freddie's circumstance when Queen made this track. Yeah, "Bohemian Rhapsody" is also terrific, but I think "The Show Must Go On" deserves more love.

4 Another One Bites the Dust Another One Bites the Dust Cover Art

Coolest beat ever. Such a great song.

"And another one gone, and another one gone, and another one bites the dust!.. "

This record proves that Freddie could sing in any style he chose. The man was a genius.

This song is totally sweet. I mean have you heard the beat 'cause it is rocking'. GO QUEEN!

Not your usual Queen song as it's more of a funk song than anything resembling rock (Al tough that is very fitting considering how experimental the group is). But oh boy isn't it catchy. Might have the best favourite baseline ever as well.

5 We are the Champions We are the Champions Cover Art

Amazing power ballad - the way Freddie sings it is with all his feeling. It is an very underrated song and I just adore it

This one isn't made for less than top 3! It should be competing for first place with Bohemian Rhapsody! What a Genius Freddie was! We are the champions, my friends, and we'll keep on fighting till the end! We are the champions! We are the champions! No time for losers because we are the champions! At the world

A Very underrated song, people see it as too much of a novelty song.

An absolute anthem and is probably one of the band's most recognisable songs.

6 We Will Rock You We Will Rock You Cover Art

Nobody, and I mean nobody can sing this except Freddie

I think it has a cool beat and good lyrics.

The classic stadium chant. Between the lyrics and the drums- you'll be sure to be pumped up.

all of my freins and me sand it on the last day of song and it is a moment we won't forget ever

7 Somebody to Love Somebody to Love Cover Art

I love Queen! This is my favorite by them, they are so epic!

Freddie's greatest vocal performance! (And that's saying a lot! )

Song Is brilliant in my case, shame glee had to go and ruin it.

Best ballad ever written. Was known to be Freddies favourite Queen songs and it's easy to see why

8 Killer Queen Killer Queen Cover Art

Killer queen is a very good song I really like the high notes along with it it flows well that way. Although I do like we are the champions killer queen is my favorite!

If I were to pick one Queen song beside Bohemian Rhapsody to describe the band Killer Queen would be my pick. The song and lyrics are elegant and sophisticated just like the band. Glam rock at it's peak!

It's just great: It has a really good beat and I love to hear it over and over again! Bohemian Rapsody is great too, although I'll be on "Killer Queen"'s side now.

A classic Queen song, extremely clever lyrics and great vocals.

9 Under Pressure Under Pressure Cover Art

I love this song it's so catchy and the lyrics are epic. They have so much meaning and I listen to this song all the time. I just hate that vanilla ice messed it up with his very similar song ice ice baby. Now when most people hear the opening they think that I'm playing ice ice baby

I get in love with it when I first time heard it, I love the lyric which is so encouraging. the rhythm is so great that I can say I will never get bore with it even listen to it every single minute.

It's the best song that I've ever heard in my life. The music world miss you too Freddy!

Queen Under Pressure transcended the 80's, once we heard the bass riff we knew this song was going to be awesome, and once we heard Freddie Mercury singing the song we forgot David Bowie was featured on this song because we all just thought this song was a Queen song only and the song is absolutely a classic song, and one of the best songs of the 80's.

10 I Want to Break Free I Want to Break Free Cover Art

Amazing song. It's so great, but so underrated. The video was just as a joke, but I adore it anyway!

It is obvious why this song is the best Queen song - because it was written non other than John Deacon. He may have not written that many songs, but most of them were huge!

Excellent song of those years. I believe that this song has the value throughout the years. I am very proud that an Indian has sang this song. With great remembrance I am very proud the great man has given an excellent song.

HAHA LOVE IT. That part halfway through the song with that funny sounding instrument. Great song, also great message. I'd take the video as a joke, it was funny. But overall great song, all queen songs are great. Freddie mercury was so famous why? , well because of his amazing voice and just by listening to this you can know how amazing it is. Queen will always be remembered.

The Newcomers

? Radio Gaga Radio Gaga Cover Art

There's a key change in there that makes me glad to be alive!

Fully love this one! Super song. Wonder where Lady Gaga got her name? Just wondering.

Very emotional song for me. I love it, the Live Aid version my very favorite version.

Musical genius! Wonderful composition and lyrics, a true work of art.

The Contenders

11 Innuendo Innuendo Cover Art

This is a masterpiece of human culture and music genius.
Shame not to be among the top three Queen songs.

Haunting Epic, I just love it. Saying that I do love all Queen songs, I am sure I'm like many Queen fans, who can't choose a favorite song.
But I love this song, its weird, its like jumping into a bi-polar opera. Its also a song where if you've heard it once or a million times, your still like... I'd love to know what this bizarre song is about?

love the lyrics "You can be anything you want to be
Just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be"

Same concept as Bohemian Rhapsody, except this time it isn't overplayed.

12 The March of the Black Queen The March of the Black Queen Cover Art

The predecessor to Bohemian Rhapsody, the song is an example of how creative the band can be when it comes to lyrics and composing.

This song is absolutely out of the world! A beauty...out of the advanced...mind blowing

This, as part of the quad of songs on Queen II, Fairy Feller's Masterstroke/Nevermore/March Of The Black Queen/Funny How Love Is simply is the best work Queen ever did for me... they show them at their very peak as a hard rock band, and showed glimpses of future songs like Bo Rap in it's layered operatic vocals and instruments... sublime...

Very underrated song from a very underrated album. It's a shame that Bohemian Rhapsody is so well known and this is so under appreciated. :/

13 I Want It All I Want It All Cover Art

If you like Queen, that's because you're have an excellent taste in music!
If you don't Like it, you can start with this song!

if "all" is all of the "I want it all" records in the world, then, I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now!

This song is masterpiece - very well written, produced and performed. "I Want It All" is my personal favorite song by Queen but I do love everything from this legendary band

This is an amazin' song. Can't everyone see that! This song should be higher up...

14 Crazy Little Thing Called Love Crazy Little Thing Called Love Cover Art

This is so unfair! How can you Possibly pick 'the best Queen song'? They're ALL THE BEST!
I love all the famous ones, but I absolutely Adore the lesser known ones, the ones familiar to only avid Queen fans (like me and you). With their eclectic mix, there's something for everyone, whether it's soft, or fast and furious, or everything in between, Queen's got it all. From the loveliness of Love Of My Life, Nevermore, Lily Of The Valley, & Save Me to the fury of Stone Cold Crazy, Dead On Time, and We Will Rock You (fast version! ); I love them all.
That's why Queen is So much more than their hits! Their hidden gems are a treasure trove of ecstasy!
Freddie's voice is so magnificent, and his passion so fierce, that anything he sings is my favorite! He is the most stunningly awesome performer ever to grace the Earth!

"Ready freddie? "
catchy, old school rock, and a great person in the vocals... a recipe for success!

Too many good songs to pick. So I just picked the first that came to mind.

How is this song not in the top ten? It is one of the greatest songs be queen.. It has that old school rock vibe which makes it very catchy!

15 Fat Bottomed Girls Fat Bottomed Girls Cover Art

Maybe the best full out rock song that band ever did (Based on how you categories their songs). This rock anthem makes you want to blast the stereo and sing your heart out.

Perfect mix of what Queen was before and after Jazz: hard rocking with great vocals but also hear the (almost) pop hooks Queen displayed in the 80s. First time I really remember hearing "Fat Bottomed Girls', I had somehow already knew and remembered hearing the riff. Oh, that fabulous and crunchy riff. Possible career highlight of Brian May, outside of a guitar solo.

Then Freddie's voice comes in gritty and catchy, a hard feat to manage, even for the other great rock vocalists, and completely owns it. Roger's contributions were just as great and memorable, as evidenced by me tapping my foot every time I hear this song. So catchy in fact, that several times I have woke up in the morning with it in my head! I don't know how, but I guess I was thinking about it while sleeping? Just shows how this fun tune never gets old and you'll literally be thinking of it from morning to night! Freddie of course is unbeatable, but on 'Fat Bottomed Girls' he really shines, not in terms ...more


18th place? Seriously? This song definitely should be in the top 10

16 The Prophet's Song The Prophet's Song Cover Art

Bohemian Rhapsody isn't even the best song on it's own album. That honor goes to The Prophet's Song, a true masterpiece.

THIS is the first power metal song ever and everything is superb especially Brian May's guitar work and the canon section in the middle with overdubbed vocals by Freddie.

It seems like nobody ever knows about this song! This, and Liar, Innuendo beat Bohemian Rhapsody by miles! Starts calmly, and proceeds to the vocal section and finally the epic ending. Number one Queen song, and it's what makes A Night at the Opera the best Queen album.

Most unique, absolutely classic. Vocals achieves peak notes.

17 Who Wants to Live Forever? Who Wants to Live Forever? Cover Art

With the exception of the greatest rock and roll song of all time (it does not need to be named) this is Queen's best song!

I don't like to use the word epic too many times in one month, but I think it needs to happen for this.

Ummm... duh? This song is so dramatic and lyrically awesome! Not to mention the delivery is totally rocking'! Listen to it and you will understand the wonders that this song portrays.

I can't believe how perfect this song is. It's unbelievably incredible. Maybe not only the best song I have ever listened from Queen but also the best song I have ever listened ever in my entire life.

This song is my favorite. Funny thing is I'm listening to it while I'm typing this. The way Freddie sings it is just captivating and really nice and has that true statement in it but seriously the song is too good to be out of top 10 come on! If you vote any other song (with the exception of a few others) there is something messed up with your brain

18 You're My Best Friend You're My Best Friend Cover Art

This song is the most sweetest thing I have ever heard. The lyrics to this song are so sweet.

I love this song! we sung it for choral night and we won out of Killer Queen, Dont stop me Now and Bohemian Rhapsody!

I agree this should be in the top 3. It's a classic.

This song is way better than 13th! Should be in their top 3.

19 Stone Cold Crazy Stone Cold Crazy Cover Art

This is what started some big 80s bands out there. Very underrated. I voted for it because I wanted to put that out there. I was gonna vote for something else, but I figured this should be higher on the list. Anyway, I only know 1 other kid who knows and loves this song. Thanks Ray.
Long live Queen. Long live Freddie Mercury. Freddie Mercury, we all miss you greatly and wish you were with us today. RIP.

The more I scrolled the more I thought I had accidentally glazed over this song and it was actually up way higher. Then I found this... ALL THE WAY DOWN AT 72?!?! Seriously, this is a masterpiece of a song that essentially crafted the thrash metal genre and would go on to help birth bands such as Metallica! A legendary song and definitely much more deserving a spot much higher than 72

Holy crap, what the heck is this song doing down here. This is one of Queen's greatest songs! One of the first thrash metal songs ever. And you have to love that sexy guitar solo. This list is just stone cold crazy

It is one of the most underrated song. This song is pretty awesome... Should be in at least top ten

20 Too Much Love Will Kill You Too Much Love Will Kill You Cover Art

A song straight from Freddie's heart. This is the song that made me fall in love with Queen. It's amazing how Freddie touches hearts. He sings his soul out in this one.

I simply love this song! Awesome chorus and singing, and also awesome lyrics and message in it! I actually understood this song and I felt pretty sad and like "yea" fred's right from this one. this should be in one of the top ten guys...

Such an underrated song. To me, it’s my favorite Queen song and certainly belongs in the top 10. The lyrics are beautifully heartbreaking and you can hear Freddie singing from the heart in this one. Not too mention the lyrics in this song are so true

Cannot help but cry. Freddie's voice. The video. The meaning. So pure and heartfelt and Freddie's goodbye song. Utter perfection!

21 Tie Your Mother Down Tie Your Mother Down Cover Art

This one really sent the crowd in a frenzy.

I really expected this to be in the top 5, this is way out of place.

This song should be top 20 at least. It's an amazing work of music written by May

Most powerful beat and lyrics ever

22 A Kind of Magic A Kind of Magic Cover Art

What an epic song
Only freddie can do the live concerts and make them sound so good

Great lyrics. Fine melody. Anything Freddie put his magical vocals to is great. Loved Queen back in the day. Still love 'em just as much today. I wish we had smart phones back when I saw them in concert.

This song should be number 11 or in the top 10

One the most iconic Queen's song. It deserves to be in the top 15!

23 Love of My Life Love of My Life Cover Art

This is the first time I heard this song, and I loved it immediately. Its just wonderful. And his voice - it's so magical. I heard the live version - and the way he interacts with the audience - is so masterful. He had them in the palm of his hand.

What is this doing at 25?! I get Queen has a ton of great songs but this is easily too 5. One of the most beaut songs ever written.

I was on the fence between this one or show must go on but this song is CRIMINALLY low on this list so I had to vote for it. Absolutely beautiful song.

Beautiful piano, beautiful guitar... It is really deep and inspiring. It is the most beautiful Queen ballad.

24 '39 '39 Cover Art

The thing I like about Queen is each of their songs tells a story thats greater than most blockbuster movies, without telling you EXACTLY whats gonna happen... youre allowed to like write your own story while listening and 39' is the perfect example of this and one of the most underrated song not just by Queen but by any band...

Deep meaning and in the live version Roger plays the tambourine and says "YEE HAH" and its adorable.

Simply the most beautiful and uplifting Brian May vocals/composition ever. Give it a listen, it's on A Night At The Opera. Should've been a single...

Phenomenal song! It has a great story behind it, and it's beautifully written. I have no idea how it's so unpopular.
Don't Stop Me Now and We Will Rock You are so overrated.

25 Hammer to Fall Hammer to Fall Cover Art

This is my favourite Queen song and I don't get how da hell it's so underrated
Fantastic, catchy, beautiful

I think Hammer To Fall should be top 5 at least. It's a really powerful song and very catchy

Best. Queen. Song. Ever.

Has to be in the top ten greatest Queen songs ever.


After listening to all rated and underrated Queen songs for so many years, Hammer is my absolute favourite. Metal bands, this song shows how the hammer must fall. Quote: Best. Queen. Song. Ever.
