It's pretty much impossible for any casual fan of music to ignore Queen. Whether or not you're actually a fan of rock music, the booming tones of something like We Will Rock You or Bohemian Rhapsody are so classic that they practically feel like they've existed since the dawn of time. On the other hand, there have been many Queen tunes that never really saw the same time of success that they deserved.
Across their discography, plenty of Queen tracks have not been able to stack up against the more classic material of their early days. Even though it sometimes comes down to being in the wrong place at the wrong time, it's practically a crime that these tracks were left out to dry in lieu of the more notable singles. Granted, it's fair to say that some of these don't live up to something like Bohemian Rhapsody, but the fact that these songs didn't deserve to be hits and anything off of Hot Space did shows that something went wrong.
The best of these tracks also show Freddie Mercury taking a bit of a back seat, with the other band members taking the reigns and turning in some truly awe-inspiring performances. So next time you want to take a peek into Queen's back catalog, give these a spin and see what you've been missing out on.
