The Most Often Played Rock Song... Ever | Reviewer: Big Steve | 6/4/12
Given the discography of Queen up until this point, it's even more incredible. Just off the over the top, multi-layered, multi-harmonies of 'Night at the Opera' and 'Day at the Races', Queen made a conscious effort to switch gears and strip things down on the 'News of the World' album. This simple, "where did that come from?" song, has become likely the most recognized and played song on the planet, other than maybe 'Happy Birthday'. Strong, uniting, and universal in it's appeal, it is Brian May's single biggest legacy. The tasty guitar riff at the end is the icing on the cake. As for Queen and THEIR legacy, to have this song appear in the catalogue between 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and 'Another One Bites the Dust' (written by Freddie Mercury and John Deacon respectfully), speaks to the versatility and overall rounded talent of this band and how they adapted to the changing times. Not by 'trying to appeal to the masses', but rather by being true to themselves and expressing who they were as individual songwriters - and as what will clearly, at the end of the day, be heralded as the greatest rock and roll band of the era.
Time for a Grammy! | Reviewer: Amy
Unlike all the other Brit Rick bands, Queen remained united as one! Freddie never or rarely gave personal interviews or promoted himself as the only star. Proof that he was not a shameless self promoter like the other frontman!!!!!!
If Freddie would have stuck his face and voice in front of every american journalists face he would be known like Mick Jaggar etc... But he didn't and thats apart of what makes him and Queen so unique. All of them brilliant, the perfect mix of magic and talent.
As popular and celebrated as they are they still do not get the credid they deserve!
It's time for America to hand over all the Grammy's queen deserved to win! Lifetime achievemnt award, song writing, composition, Some special Grammy for Freddie as one of the top 3 voices, writers and frontman of all time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh and uhh certainly they have the top selling, played and known rock anthems of all time. Another one Bites The dust, We Are the Champions, and We Will Rock You...
My 60 something year old parents are now real fans and admirers of Freddie Mercury and Queen.
I am a 37 year old female american
The best encouraging song i ever heard. The song not only does has an encouraging essence but it also does gives a heart pumping excitement to everyone. I don't know about others but yes this song makes me go rockin:-).
WWRY!!!!!!!!! | Reviewer: NONYA BIDNESS | 3/4/11
i love Queen and i would have to say that this song is not my fave. my fave is another one bites the dust because thats my parents wedding song... but WWRY is my 2nd only for that reason. IF U DON'T LIKE THIS SONG U SHOULD GO DIE IN A HOLE!!
A universal song | Reviewer: Niloo
Musically “ We Will Rock You “ is simple: "stomp, stomp, clap" and a fantastic guitar riff at the end. But yet it’s a perfect song and can relate to everyone. That’s why I love this song so much. Yes, it can bring people together with every race, sex, colour, etc. Name a song so simple that have a major influence on people like this. WWRY is undoubtedly one of the best songs of all the time. P.s. it is one of the most covered songs ever. But nobody can sing it like Freddie. (No Doubt!)
Best song but... | Reviewer: Shaz | 11/4/08

This song rocks!!!!! Almost every 8 or 9 or 10 or 11 or 12 or 14 year old I know loves this song!!!! Out of the hundreds of people I know only two people who don't like that song!!! Personally, this song is on my top 10 list!!!! This song rocks!!!!
We will rock you! | Reviewer: Andria | 5/20/08
This song is fantastic for stomping and clapping! *laughs* No really, I do love this song. In a way it lacks the elegance of much of Queen's gorgeous works, but WWRY is so catchy and real you can't help but sing along. Though I have to admit, the best part of the whole thing is that fantastic guitar riff at the end....
queen as always they are rocking band this song also has given them the title the rocker and the frontman as usual gay icon freedie mercury with his mind blowing voice still remains in the heart of the rock music lovers of the world along with all the band members they have given a full effort to make this song fantabulous and mind blowing
contrary to popular belief | Reviewer: Keith B | 11/14/07
this song ruled and i happened to have owned it on 45 rpm before it ever landed on an album it will always be played back to back with we are the champions ... even IF we are the champions unseated it after 12 weeks as #1 we will ALWAYS rock you before you are a champion.
ok, its a Queen song, its popular, but there is so much other Queen songs, that are so much better than wwwr.
we will rock you | Reviewer: diego
I think this is definetely the best song that queen has ever made, Brian May is a great musician and he has made the best song in the history of music, i strongly believe that is even better than bohemian rhapsody
