Bohemian Rhapsody, Don’t Stop Me Now, Under Pressure, I Want to Break Free, We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions, Another One Bites the Dust, etc. The list of songs of Queen speaks by itself.

The Freddie Mercury-led band from London, UK, shook the World with their iconic hits from 1973 to 1991.

More than 25 years after the passing of Freddie, their valuable catalog remains hot, as much as we are tempted to believe the band was massive from day 1 until the end. In reality, their career wasn’t that easy. They grew album after album until smashing with their fourth album, A Night at the Opera, from 1975. It contained their breakthrough smash, Bohemian Rhapsody. The follow-up A Day at the Races was seen as some kind of disappointment at first, News of the World was huge, Jazz average, The Game huge in some places weak in others, Flash Soundtrack flopped, so did Hot Space. From the 80s, they never recovered their success in the US while they took forever before selling an album decently in France or in Italy… You got it. Their career was similar to Bohemian Rhapsody with epic moments and others fairly quiet.

On top of those ups and downs, among the Classic Rock groups Queen also never received the immaculate press that accompanied the likes Beatles, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. Their success isn’t rated nearly as much as them either, Queen are instead put next to U2, the Eagles or AC/DC. Where do they really rank according to the facts? What’s their biggest hits among all their golden tracks? Which albums are the most successful once factored in sales of compilations they generated?
