    Queen are an English rock band formed by Brian May, Freddie Mercury, and Roger Taylor in London, England in 1970 from the remains of Smile, with John Deacon completing the lineup the following year. Britain's most successful band of the past three decades,[1] the band became popular during the mid-to-late 1970s and still retain an extremely large international fan base. Although initially dismissed by the majority of music critics, especially those in the United States, Queen have more recently been recognized as having made significant contributions to such genres as arena rock,[2] glam rock[2], hard rock[3], heavy metal[2], pop rock, and progressive rock[2], amongst others.

    In the Music Of The Millennium poll conducted by Channel 4 in 1999, Queen were voted the second greatest band in music history.[4] In 2001, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio and in 2003 Queen became the first and remain the only band to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 2004, the band was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame and in 2006 Queen was the first inductee into the VH1 Rock Honors. Queen have also been inducted into the Rock Walk of Fame (at Guitar Center on Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard) and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And though Queen never won a Grammy Award, the band's influential 1975 single "Bohemian Rhapsody" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2004. Moreover, the band has been cited as a major influence by many other artists and performers.

    Queen have released a total of eighteen #1 albums, eighteen #1 singles, and eight #1 DVDs worldwide, making them one of the world's best-selling music artists.

    I think they are ok.

    Perhaps one of the best bands to come around? I love Queen. But, of course, I'm into the older music, anyway. They have some great music.

    Of course... they are responsible for two movie soundtracks I love (Flash Gordon and Highlander).

    And as was said above... there is this song called "We Will Rock You", "Under Pressure", and the list of hits goes on and on. Child of the 70s and growing up in the 80s, gotta love 'em.

    "Now I'm Here" is my favorite queen song.

    Freddie Mercury was the epitome of sexiness.

    Brian May plays some awesome guitar.
