unlike virtually everyone i know, i never listened to a lot of queen as a teenager, at least not that i recognized as queen. but apparently they recorded 60% of the classic rock on the radio and 100% of the jock jams the boys put on in the high school weight room

you kinda learn to hate "we are the champions" and "we will rock you" when you hear them multiple times a day for an entire school year

i concede, listening as an adult, they have some serious bangers

@wolfteeth Yeah, I like some of their songs but to this day I can't stand those.

@wolfteeth I am always sort of bewildered by Queen's following. I feel like I lose queer points for not liking them.

@elecray7k i feel like the following is 100% about freddie mercury as an icon. to some other queer folks queen represents something because of him, but to me it still just represents sports and wayne's world

@wolfteeth I have real visceral memories of how confused I was that the jerks that picked on me and made me feel isolated really loved Queen and how that made no sense to me.
