We've paid our dues time after time, and now we must reward ourselves with listening to Queen, one of the greatest bands of our time and beyond. Music simply would not be the same without the presence of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon, and the landscape of the music industry would be very different had these four not gotten together and created the magic they did. "Bohemian Rhapsody," "We Will Rock You," "Another One Bites the Dust," "Radio Ga Ga," and every single freakin song they created are legendary classics, and with today being what would have been Freddie Mercury's birthday, we've put together a guide to the Queen Albums in order just like we've done with Metallica, and most recently The Jacksons.
