The song of choice is Queen’s “We will rock you”.

It is a song that gets better with time, and gets a whole lot more attitude when played with thousands of others.

Thank you, Brian May. He wanted to “create a song that the audience could participate in.”

It was Queen’s own legendary guitarist who wrote the song for the band’s 1977 album News of the World.

That the song is a classic, legendary hit is no question.

That rhythmic drum beat that fans can follow by stomping their feet and clapping has been a favorite for decades.

Then you’ve got Freddie Mercury, arguably the greatest front man ever, and one who can control the crowd, handling vocals.

And even today with new front man Adam Lambert, Queen still gets audiences on their feet, stomping, clapping and singing along.

The song is such a rock anthem it was used for Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee Party!

Well that and other Queen songs.

A viewer named Michael French gave his testament as to how awesome this song is.

“I am in my early 50s and I remember riding the school bus in elementary school when this song got played on the radio. The whole bus of students instantly joined in to Freddie and the boys and stomped their feet and clapped their hand . So powerful of a song to unite everyone. One of the best songs of the 70s..”

You see it on video but just imagine being there, seeing and hearing all those drummers hit that familiar intro.

Must have been fun to be part of the singing crowd.
