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

This is definitely one of Queen's best songs and probably one of my favourite songs of all time. It's a six minute long song that sounds beautiful and timeless every time I hear it.

This is Bohemian Rhapsody’s cousin, ladies and gentlemen. Not every Queen song was a worldwide hit that was played on the radio on a daily basis, but, every Queen song is a hit to me.

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.

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 Cover Art

This is my 3rd favourite Queen song, and one of my favourites of all time. Its funny really, because my top 2 are I Want It All and Hammer To Fall, so this is quite different to those two. I just think this song is brilliant and I listen to it nearly every day. Please, if you have never heard it before, please go and listen to it immediately!

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!

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.

3 Death on Two Legs

Dedicated to Queen haters! I dedicate this to people who hate Queen! Queen haters, you are death on two legs. You’re tearing me apart and you never had a heart!

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

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.

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

4 The Prophet's Song The Prophet's Song Cover Art

Even though it's on their most popular album, it still tends to get overshadowed by Bohemian Rhapsody. (Which this song is just as equally revolutionary as.) That vocal breakdown section is simply phenomenal, and the band's overall performance is mind-blowing.

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

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

5 Hammer to Fall Hammer to Fall Cover Art

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.

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!

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

HAMMER TO FALL, YEAH

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

6 Innuendo Innuendo Cover Art

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.

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.

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.

My personnal favourite. A complex and very well written song, at the crossroad of different kind of genre. Reminds me a lot of Bohemian Rhapsody. It amazes me that this song is so underrated.

7 White Queen (As It Began) White Queen (As It Began) Cover Art

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

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.

This is a very beautiful song.

8 Who Wants to Live Forever Who Wants to Live Forever Cover Art

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! )

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 song shows another side to rock stars it shows some of them don't want to be immortal, and I think it also means Freddie didn't really want to immortalized

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...

9 Seven Seas of Rhye Seven Seas of Rhye Cover Art

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.

Should be on top better Queen songs. It is not merely a song, it is over that plus the beginning of queen

To me, their earliest songs were the best, this being a prime example.

Fun tune, never heard a verse that good.

10 Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy Cover Art

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!

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

I listen to this song at least ten times a day it's so upbeat and wonderful you can't help but sing along and smile

Love this song so much think more people should listen to it

The Contenders
11 Flick of the Wrist Flick of the Wrist Cover Art

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

The second part of a melody.

12 Princes of the Universe Princes of the Universe Cover Art

One of queens only heavy metal songs. Such a great song.

Such a good song. Perfect soundtrack for The Highlander movie and T.V. show.

I love how heavy this song is! It blew me away!

I love this song

13 '39 '39 Cover Art

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.

Makes me want to dance and sing and everything all at once! The most amazing guitar (twelvie) by brain may and fabulous vocals to by brian. Also a lovley bassline tying it all in together- one of my favourite songs of all time

Amazing lyrics by Brian about space travel. This gives a very interesting feel to the song as we do not know much about space tavel. Also really good tune!

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.

14 Dragon Attack Dragon Attack Cover Art

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.

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!

If not the most underrated song then definitely the most underrated riff. Also a great showcase for each band members talents.

The bass riff is sexy. Just listen to it.

15 Keep Yourself Alive Keep Yourself Alive Cover Art

This song is so underrated and I love this song! I love the vocals, the guitar, the drums, everything.

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

16 I'm Going Slightly Mad I'm Going Slightly Mad Cover Art

Definitely the most underrated. I love this song so much!

Great song, great video.

"I think I'm a banana tree. "
WHAT? YES FREDDIE YOU'RE IN MY BACKYARD

17 Stone Cold Crazy Stone Cold Crazy Cover Art

Criminally underrated song! This song was very ahead of its time and would go on to influence a lot of the thrash metal bands in the 1980s (it was even covered by Metallica). This song is heavy, fast-paced and makes you feel like a badass when listening to it!

One of the first Thrash Metal songs ever made. Fast riffs, solos, great drumming and Freddie did a good job as well. Amazing song.

Imagine creating a new genre just so you can be the best at it. That's pretty much the case with Stone Cold Crazy.

So underrated. This is practically the start of trash-metal. My favorite Queen song by far.

18 The Millionaire Waltz

Best queen song list

1. The March of the Black Queen
2. Bohemian Rhapsody
3.Innuendo
4.It's late
5.The Prophet's Song
6.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

Such a delightful & upbeat song. 2nd favorite queen song of all time, after love of my life.

19 Love of My Life Love of My Life Cover Art

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.

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.

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.

20 The Hitman The Hitman Cover Art

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

That riff is so heavy and awesome - christangrant

Epic riff, catchy tune and lyrics, what more could you want?

21 Doing Alright Doing Alright Cover Art

Best song off Queen's debut album. The way it switches from a gentle song to a bombastic hard rocker is mesmerizing

I love this one. The live at the BBC version is better though. - galaxyfox

22 One Vision One Vision Cover Art

This was just a great song that makes me feel good when I hear it.

One dump,One turd...

FRIED CHICKEN!

One dump, one turd, two t*ts, John Deacon!

23 It's Late It's Late Cover Art

Epic refrain and chorus, different tempos, pumping bass lines, shredding riffs and a climax that few others Queen's songs possess.

Why is this only 36 on the "Best Queen Songs" list? To me, it's much better than 36. Top 10 probably.

Possibly one of the best riffs in rock history!

Autobiographical Brian May song

24 The Miracle The Miracle Cover Art

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

25 Sheer Heart Attack Sheer Heart Attack Cover Art

UNDERRATED!
