Queen - Why the backlash?

#1
Listening to Radio 6 this week both Shaun Keaveny and Marc Riley have played one of Queen's many songs.
Only to receive quite a strong backlash from some listeners, which makes me wonder what the hell is wrong with these people.

Queen are one of the best rock bands that these isles have produced, with terrific anthems and possibly the greatest showman ever.

Most Radio 6 listeners seem to have a hardon for The Smith and Morrisey who I quite frankly despise, however I can still listen to their songs now and then and I'll happily admit that 'How Soon is Now' is a great song. I bet it is these same fools that moan when Queen is played.

Radio 6 is still the best station but it makes me laugh that they bang on about an eclectic choice of music....which isn't mirrored by some of it's listeners.

Radio 6 listeners are all just Radio Gaga

What songs were played?

"Fat bottomed girls" is always good for a back lash.

Its my fave track too.
Mine too. Wouldn't mind all the twenty cent coins back that were shovelled into the Juke Box at Roches Hotel to hear this song in around '81 '82- at a guess.

Then twenty years later it was dollar coins at my snooker club to watch the outstanding video as well!

My radio station still plays it with much love, along with the other Queen classics. Brilliant musicians!

Never much liked Queen's stuff but agree that Freddie was an awesome voice and stage presence. Never realised how much so until they did the tribute album after he died; no-one else came close.

Morrissey will always be a whinging twat.

Death on Two Legs was quite nice actually... :?

Ray Charles is where it's at for me right now. And a bit of Henry Mancini (Sammy the cat. Pink Panther theme)

And Planet Rock by Afrika Bambattaa. Followed by the Danse Macabre by Saint Saens.

Apart from that recent little ditty from the Stereophonics, Caro Emerald and Madness, today's music is of **** all interest to me.

Wot, no Edmundo Ross?

I'd ignore who ever it was that first complained about Queen. He's probably just a poor boy from a poor family.

Queen never did it for me,just a matter of taste I suppose.Coerced into seeing that stage show,still not impressed.I admit Freddy was a good front man and the band seem to be very popular,I guess it's just me.

I wouldn't bother, it's utter shite. Every person I know who went says the same thing.

Apparently people were walking out in their dozens when it opened in Belfast.
It's my clerks favourite musical, and he likes a lot of musical theatre.
