In this web-page, we will explore the history of QUEEN, their musical style, their most popular albums and songs, and their legacy.

History:

QUEEN was formed in 1970 when Freddie Mercury, Brian May, and Roger Taylor met while studying at the Imperial College in London.

It was their third album, "Sheer Heart Attack," released in 1974, that brought the band to international success.

In 1975, QUEEN released their fourth album, "A Night at the Opera," which included their most famous song, "Bohemian Rhapsody." The song, which is over six minutes long and includes multiple sections and styles, became an instant classic and cemented QUEEN's place in music history. The band continued to release successful albums throughout the 1970s and 1980s, including "A Day at the Races" (1976), "News of the World" (1977), and "The Game" (1980).
