Green Day, the Ramones, Patti Smith and more make the punk album list. Ebet ty, Ian ty, Dick ty. Punk rock started in 1976 on New York’s Bowery, when four cretins from Queens came up with a mutant strain of blitzkrieg bubblegum. The revolution they inspired split the history of rock & roll in half. If Ramones was Year Zero for punk rock, it didn’t come without precedent, so we included essential forebears like the Stooges, the New York Dolls, Pere Ubu and Patti Smith, artists who were punk in spirit (if not always entirely in sound) before the style really had a name. We didn’t get too fussy about all the old but really, what is punk? debates either.

In 1977, punk rock acts, most notably the Sex Pistols, sparked massive backlash against progressive rock artists such as Queen, to which the band responded by simplifying their symphonic rock sound and gearing towards a more spontaneous hard rock sound. The album subsequently went 4x platinum in the United States, reaching number 3 on the US Billboard 200, number 4 on the UK Albums Chart and achieving high certifications around the world. Everyone received a free single of "We Are the Champions", a day before the single was released. To thank the audience for their attendance and role in making the video, Queen performed a short free concert after the shoot. On 7 October 2017, Queen released a Raw Sessions version of the track to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of News of the World.

Green Day's fourth biggest seller was the moment they well and truly cracked the UK. Basket Case's sharp, ear-snagging lyrics about ones descent into madness can be recited by any punk-rock-raver worth their salt ("Do you have the time/ To listen to me whine?" is surely one of the best opening lines of a punk song ever?). So sure were they of its hit potential that it had two cycles on the Official Singles Chart; once in 1994 where it peaked at 55, and again six months later in 1995 where it reached a much healthier Number 7. To date, its sales in the UK stand at 263,800

So when We Will Rock You comes on the radio, I pray We Are The Champions won't follow it, but usually to no avail. Green Day plays this song as part of their encore. It was sweet! Alicia from Tamaqua, PaI dought this song was about homosexuals, but then again it could be. no one will ever know the truth. Kent Lyle from Palo Alto, CaFreddie only contributed 3 songs to this album, a much lower proportion than was usual. This might have been due to the album's style - they were trying to follow the trend of punk simplicity, and Freddie tended to write the most flamboyant songs. He has said this was his version of "My Way".

Rock You" is a barely two-minute, pugnacious, percussion-heavy pseudo-threat that features no traditional instruments, save for looped handclaps and boot stomps, until guitarist Brian May's searing solo shows up in the final 45 seconds. We almost saw it like an introduction to "We Are the Champions," which is a more classic, very grand song. We were very aware that we didn't want to be labeled as a glam rock/prog rock dinosaur, so we wanted to absolutely consciously change and we tried to keep changing. Have you seen some of his looks back in the day?" It illustrates that the '80s was a different time. that they were written as not I, but "w.
