i think i did this thread about a year ago. Can we all be sensible now and admit they're amazing?
Brian may is/was an excellent guitarist, freddy mercury was a phenomenal songwriter, vocalist and above all frontman. They were bombastic and camp and brilliant. I find the use of "dont stop me now" as a "cheesy" disco hit has warped people's perception of them from a fun camp band with anthems and actual proper good songwriting to a "cheesy omg" kind of band.
