One of the most beloved and well-respected rock bands, the British group Queen released an array of popular songs during the 1970s and 1980s. The band consisted of lead singer and pianist Freddie Mercury, Brian May as the lead guitarist, Roger Taylor as the drummer, and John Deacon as the bassist. Although Mercury passed away in 1991, Queen still tours today.

- “Killer Queen” – Released in 1974, this song helped bring international fame to Queen and became their first hit in the United States. It was written by Mercury and contains lyrics like, “She keeps Moet et Chandon / In her pretty cabinet / 'Let them eat cake, ' she says / Just like Marie Antoinette,” which evoke a “Parisian imagery,” according to historian Paul Fowles.
- “We Will Rock You / We Are the Champions” – Usually played together, these songs remain a staple at current sporting events. They evoke a sense of pride and victory with lyrics like, “We’ll keep on fighting ‘til the end” and “We are the champions / of the world.”
