One of my favorite Queen songs off my favorite Queen album.

Queen performs a revved up version of “We Will Rock You” at England’s Milton Keynes Bowl on the Hot Space Tour in 1982.

This is the same “fast” version that kicks off Live Killers and one that the band used as a show opener during the late 1970s through the early 1980s. According to (the mostly reliable) Wikipedia, a studio recording of this version exists as part of a live studio performance for John Peel’s BBC Radio 1 show in 1977.

It’s really sad that a band like Queen probably wouldn’t be given time of day now. Their tunes are so brilliantly weird and interesting while retaining amazing pop hooks and camp drama aplenty.
