Most Underrated Queen SongsPotBellyPup Queen have a huge amount of songs that sold very well, "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Don't Stop Me Now", "We are the Champions" and "We Will Rock You" are probably 4 of their most popular songs. However Queen have had a huge selection of underrated songs too.
The Top Ten
I think it can compete with Bohemian Rhapsody. - Misfire
Bohemian Rhapsody but with a twist -- and beautiful isolated vocals in the middle!
This is definitely their best song. better than bohemian rhapsody
Just as good as Bohemian Rhapsody - queeniifan22 Comments
The grit/distortion that Freddie gets on his voice makes it one of my absolute favorite vocal tracks from him. The rest of the instrumental parts are super powerful, distorted and driving. The chorus is simply spectacular. If not the most underrated Queen song then the most underrated John Deacon composition. What a song!
The deepness and gruffness to Freddie's voice in this song is simply amazing. It blows me away every time I hear it. Being a younger person, this song's lyrical meaning also gives me hope and picks me up. For I know that if I fail I still have freddie and his beautiful voice to soothe me.
What an outstanding song. If you don't like this, you're not alive. John Deacon, Queen's secret weapon, does it again.
Actually, except Another one bites the dust, You're my vest friend & I want to break free, John Deacon's songs are underrated. HE is underrated. Just listen to If you can't beat them, You and I, Misfire, Friends will be friends and Pain is so close to pleasure. (the last two was written by Freddie Mercury,too.) These songs are just EPIC! John Deaocn is an awesome songwriter and bassist.
This is my opinion and sorry for my English!
It's so good! - Misfire
Queen is by far the most varietal artist I have ever seen, and this song showcases the more hard and punk side of the band. Amazing.
Awesome song! Better than any other “diss track” out there. Classic hard rock and underrated intro to an epic album.
The definition of Hard Rock. The Piano represent's the soft of Queen. When the guitars come in you feel Queen coming in. One of my favorite Queen songs. Way too underrated - PapaMing3 Comments
Best Queen songs besides Bohemian Rhapsody
The solumn intro, haunting lyrics, masterful vocal section, epic climax, and beautiful outro to Love of My Life make this song my absolute favorite song of all time, let alone within Queen's vast library of masterful music. This song deserves so much more attention and praise.
This song most certainly suffers from being on the same record as Bohemian Rhapsody and could easily be the stand-out piece of any other Queen album
I show this song to people who say they don't like Queen... then watch their brains explode19 Comments
Very good song. - Userguy44
Love this song, and it's really awesome on Queen at Live Aid
This Queen song just grows on you, great pick me up song. The more you listen to it the more you realise how great the composition is. Love the drum roll at the end!8 Comments
I love this song. - Userguy44
Very underrated song... People think that album innuendo has 2 good songs:
"Show Must Go On" and "These Are Days Of Our Lives"...
But this is not true... This song is even better than them.
One of their 5 best songs indisputably. Emotionally and musically so complex and exceptionally out of the ordinary, it is perhaps, one of the 15 best songs of all time of classical rock existence... And no, I'm not exaggerating.
An epic song that reminds one of their finest works from the mid 1970s. This song has everything that made Queen a great band - brilliant vocals and guitars and haunting lyrics.10 Comments
Only few Queen songs convey such a strong, pure and complete feeling like this one. This song was lucky to be on Queen II and get the signature rich instrumentation of this perfect album. Perfect diverse and unusual song.
Simply beautiful. The segue from Father to Son to this song on the Queen II album is just flawless and amazing.
Not just the song that's good. Not just Freddies voice that was fantastic. Not just the instruments that were incredible, but the lyrics that were perfect.
This is one of my favorite queen songs, if you can't appreciate it, you are not a queen fan
There is no way to describe this song. It touches your soul and it makes me crying, because it's beautiful. - Userguy44
The only song that has brought me to tears completely unbelievable. Freddie rules.
This song; words and melody combined with Freddy, is like the word "myth" - totally mysterious and exciting. And when the song rises in the middle, it's absolutely beautiful. Chills!
It does not show that (to the comment below) it was written for a movie... Still awesome though. Deserves more popularity.11 Comments
Should be on top better Queen songs. It is not merely a song, it is over that plus the beginning of queen
Uplifting and unique!
This song is filled with great tunes. It takes some time to get use to, but the more you listen to it, the more you end up liking it. Great song. I'd say this song could easily be in the top five of this list.
To me, their earliest songs were the best, this being a prime example.
Agreed. Their earlier songs had more inspiration and were more experimental. - DaringXx4 Comments
It's one of my favorites. - Misfire
It's so good, I don't know why barely anyone talks about it.
My number 1 most played on my iPod. Can't believe me, still on how AWESOME THIS SONG IS?! I have the album. (Can't stop listening to it now! ) Please, if you don't know the song, click the sample. Sure you'll love it. Then listen to the entire song. THE BEST EVER!
Best sing ever!16 Comments
This give me Beatles vibes. - Userguy44
I love the live killer version with freddie singing - Farid87
This song could be the basis of a novel. Brian said so much in so few words. Freddy does a great job singing it live too.
One of my all time favourite songs. Beautiful tune. For years I didn't even realise it was Queen. Very surprising as I consider myself a massive fan of Queen.11 Comments
Such a good song. Perfect soundtrack for The Highlander movie and T.V. show.
One of queens only heavy metal songs. Such a great song.
I love this song
Very cool song that I sometimes associate with Death On Two Legs. Both seem to tell the story of some b who steals all the money and is bad and nasty... Oh, do I love this song.
This sing ROCKS. the amazing background guitar, the singing, the aggressive, scary, doomy sound to this song is insane
Should have been a hit and its better than Seven Seas of Rhye.
"I think I'm a banana tree. "
WHAT? YES FREDDIE YOU'RE IN MY BACKYARD
Definitely the most underrated. I love this song so much!
One of the first Thrash Metal songs ever made. Fast riffs, solos, great drumming and Freddie did a good job as well. Amazing song. - Userguy44
So underrated. This is practically the start of trash-metal. My favorite Queen song by far.
Very fast, very good - bat10
Imagine creating a new genre just so you can be the best at it. That's pretty much the case with Stone Cold Crazy.1 Comment
Literally one of their best songs. Kind of a shame it doesn't get more attention as the song is an absolute hidden gem!
One of my favourite Queen songs, it's just so memorable and heavy - lemoulin51
Epic riff, catchy tune and lyrics, what more could you want?
Criminally underrated1 Comment
Very beautiful song. - Userguy44
Freddie's passionate vocal performance steal the show. Minimalist in the beginning, the rest of the band doesn't make itself heard until the last minute or so, but that simply allows Freddy to deliver one of the most genuine and tender moments in rock history.
Beautiful song, never ceases to pull at my heartstrings
The first time I ever heard this song I was watching live at Wembley 1984. It was on Freddie's birthday I was watching it, and it was so beautiful that I sat and cried for five minutes. Mercury's voice and May's stunning guitar playing are an epic powerhouse when presenting this song live. Even on the album version it give me chills.10 Comments
Should be in the top 10, at least. - Misfire
So creative and unlike anything you have ever heard
Such a delightful & upbeat song. 2nd favorite queen song of all time, after love of my life.
This song should be one of the best song of Queen alongside with Bohemian Rhapsody, Killer Queen and Somebody to Love. The very first time hearing it, it blows my mind straightaway. Freddie was a genius!4 Comments
If not the most underrated song then definitely the most underrated riff. Also a great showcase for each band members talents.
Easily their most under rated song, a perfect slice of pure funk rock, the 'little brother' of Another One Bites The Dust, but boy, this is funky!
This is one of the best rock songs you could find. Featuring a great bass solo from the underrated John Deacon and OUTSTANDING guitar from Brian May. I'm addicted to this song. - matty925
Best song off Queen's debut album. The way it switches from a gentle song to a bombastic hard rocker is mesmerizing
One dump,One turd...
This was just a great song that makes me feel good when I hear it.
One dump, one turd, two t*ts, John Deacon! - Misfire
Why is this only 36 on the "Best Queen Songs" list? To me, it's much better than 36. Top 10 probably. - Metarock
Epic refrain and chorus, different tempos, pumping bass lines, shredding riffs and a climax that few others Queen's songs possess.
Possibly one of the best riffs in rock history!
Autobiographical Brian May song2 Comments
Amazing, up-beat, happy song, strong meaning, absolutely flawless.
D'YOU KNOW D'YOU KNOW JUST HOW I FEEL?
The instrumental after mother mercury look what they have done to me is the best in pophistory briljant every time I listen to it I hear new things
This song is very underrated. This song is not a hard rock song. It's a metal song. While few of their songs were considered as proto-metal songs but this song never got the attention. This song has also a very good screaming. Deserves to be on high. - zxm
Guitar work is amazing in this song. - Userguy44
Amazing song, and not among Queen's most popular, but definitely among their best. - TheFrodo
This song is the most underrated song IN THE WORLD
One of the most underrated songs ever
I like the bass line. lol - Misfire
Love the bassline! such a fun song
My least favourite Queen song, I'm afraid. - truckturner
The bass line in this track is unforgettable. I believe the artist who composed the theme for Danny Phantom used this song as a guide due to the similarities. Not to mention the band members being called out throughout the song2 Comments
Easily the most underrated songs of all time!
One of Qeens greatest songs
One of the most beautiful songs ever written.
Teo Torriatte is an amazing song, it really touches you. One of Queens most uderrated songs by far.
Seems like a complete joke of a song, but actually has good instrumentals
Incredibly catchy. Very good vocals by Freddie.
Amazing as most of Queen songs. Underrated by miles.
His voice takes my breath away... - Misfire
Such a passionate masterpiece of art. It makes me shiver whenever I listen to it. That would be the way I'd declare my love for someone if I found out I'd really love her. Thanks for this, Fred.
This is going to be my wedding dance song. Such beautiful heartfelt lyrics that says it all
One of the most beautiful songs ever written.1 Comment
The best funky song they have
Really underrates, especially since it's on Hot Space
Really nice, people say it's bad while they don't even know the song
Really underrated and one of the best songs on Hot Space
Changes sound and was way ahead of its time
Completely ignored by many people. This is my favourite Queen song, just listen to that mid-section.
Phenomenal, mind blowing, incredible, mesmerizing.
I just never grow tired of this song!
One of the most underrated song of every time
Great song should have been on hits albums
This is truly incredible. Extraordinary how they manage to include a typical classical sound in the middle. It totally naturaly comes out of rock sound and naturally returns to it. MORE THAN GENIUS. Only. Queen can reach these heights.
THE BEST EVER!
Brian's vocals in this is so soothing. I loved the part when they do the chorus "Did we leave our way behind us. " So fulfilling,
You've got to hear the live version from Argentina 1981. You'll know what I mean.
This should be higher on this list. I listen to this a lot, has a great piano solo at end, very good lyrics, and great harmonies. When my mother discovered this, she wanted to listen to it every day, and still does two months later. Love Man On The Prowl. This Is Way Better Than Back To Humans and Tear It Up.
This song has such an insane guitar solo, perfect for movie car chases (like in baby driver)
Simply put, amazing vocals and outstanding guitar solo.
So long and pleasurable
I learned Brighton Rock from my favorite movie Baby Driver. Now Brighton Rock is like my number one most listened to song. I’m glad others appreciate it. I wish it was on the greatest hits 1/2/ or 3.4 Comments
