Most Underrated Queen Songs

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

1 March of the Black Queen

If you are a Bohemian Rhapsody fan, then this is the song that most notably relates to it. I mean, if Bohemian Rhapsody was a father and had an offspring, this song would definitely be his heir. The March of the Black Queen is easily among Queen's top songs in my opinion.

Fantastic... I am and always will be a life long Queen Fan... This is the track that I just have to keep having a listen to on my own every now and then... Usually on full volume in the car

One of the best song of the album, and one of the greatest queen songs, the choirs, the guitar, the lyrics... Its just awesome

Definitely one of the best song, especially when paired with Funny How Love Is, that comes right after it in the album. It has everything Queen does best, and very similar to Bohemian Rhapsody

2 Spread Your Wings Spread Your Wings

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!

Beautiful song, but where's "My Melancholy Blues? "

A very beautiful song. Freddie playing piano and singing this song is extremely beautiful.. He was so much talented.

A masterpiece of choir composition.

4 The Prophet's Song The Prophet's Song

Even on the "Most Underrated Queen Songs" list, this song is underrated.

Absolutely incredible song. Brilliant work guitar as well as spectacular lead and backing vocals. Incredible lyrics.

Why is this not on this list?! This is an amazing song, and it should definitely be in AT LEAST the top 3.

This should be no. 1. Simply mesmerising

5 Death on Two Legs

The opening song of A Night At The Opera, an amazing screw-you song, what else could you ask for?

And this, my friends, is the song you need to start dedicating to your enemies! - kaitlynrad11

MY GOD! Favorite Queen song since I've heard it. And it's one of my favorite bands

6 Who Wants to Live Forever Who Wants to Live Forever

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!

This is really amazing song. I mean... Like the best song (next to David Bowie:Heroes) for anyone who knows the feeling of loving someone you cannot be with...

I mean, the world was kind of blown away when Metallica made S&M (which is brilliant) but this is an amazing song on every aspect, which highlights, in my opinion, how a song can become underrated according to music history and depending on the age it is released in (no social online media and massive internet usage back in the days boys! ) - JonhyBot

7 Hammer to Fall Hammer to Fall

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!

The greatest Queen song I've ever heard. This song properly got me into Queen. The lyrics, Freddie's Vocals, Roger Taylor drumming and backing vocals, Brian May's riffs and kick ass solos, everything I like was in that song. But unfortunately this song is very very underrated. The last "Wooho" was also great. This song never moved from my top 10 best songs list. - zxm

One of the all time greatest rock songs in history, great hooks, riffs, melodies and lyrics.


Queen's Live Aid performance of this song is my personal favourite from the whole concert.

8 '39 '39

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.

An interstellar masterpiece. One of their best and most unique songs. Extremely underrated.

Queen playing a folk song about space and time travel? Cause why not?

9 Innuendo Innuendo

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.

THE Queen song. in my opinion this is better than Bohemian Rhapsody

Basically, it should be considered to be better than Bohemian Rhapsody. It is one of Queen's epic songs and their longest ever released as a single, exceeding "Bohemian Rhapsody" by 35 seconds. The song could be said as "reminiscent" of "Bohemian Rhapsody, but even better. - TheRegular1227

Amazing as most of Queen songs. Underrated by miles.

The Contenders

11 Seven Seas of Rhye Seven Seas of Rhye

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.

Fun tune, never heard a verse that good. -

This is the instrumental on queen ii

12 White Queen (As It Began) White Queen (As It Began)

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

13 The Millionaire Waltz The Millionaire Waltz

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!

Excellent track... A bit of everything in there... What talent to think this up and be confident to release it... Fabulous.. My fave queen song

Simply breath taking, this song has it all. This song should be realised now!

This song is just genius. It's the proof Queen is the most diverse band ever!

14 Love of My Life Love of My Life

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.

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.

I remember hearing the live version of this- queen rocks Montreal - I think, the acoustic guitar is beautiful it almost brigs tear. Freddie's vocals are just so powerful and sung with great feeling. This is one of my favorite queen songs ever

Prophet Song and Bohemian Rhapsody blow my mind, but this song takes me somewhere no other Queen song has. I can't explain it, it just feels so personal and genuine. If nothing else it's the best song to show Freddie's ability.

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

16 Keep Yourself Alive Keep Yourself Alive

Should have been a hit and its better than Seven Seas of Rhye.

17 Play the Game Play the Game

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

Amazing, up-beat, happy song, strong meaning, absolutely flawless.

My favourite song by queen and I love the video, and the way they put each band member's name in the lyrics amuses my
