    General CommentI think this is kinda cool...Sid Vicious, from the Sex Pistols, which is what this song is a cover of, I'm assuming, was a Queen fan...so, this is kinda cool. Seems like Queen is saying that they're a fan of the sex Pistols, or something. I could be looking too much into it, though. I like this song, and I love the CD "A Night At the Opera"

    General CommentThree Lefts you are retarded. God Save the Queen is the British National Anthem, not a Sex Pistols song - even though they may have covered it. Good call.

    General CommentSex Pistols have a song called God Save the Queen which is completly unrelated to this song which is a cover, as Sukai rightly points out of the British National Anthem.

    I doubt that Queen were fans of the Sex Pistols but I could be wrong simply because they don't display (m)any punk tendencies in their music.

    I'm guessing they probably got the idea from Hendrix's rendition of the U.S. National Anthem and wanted to do a British equivalant of it and lets face it, Queen (due to the name) were the perfect band to do the cover.

    Also you have to consider which Queen the title refers too. Is it the British Monarch, or the band themselves?

    General CommentQueen performed God Save The Queen (the british national anthem) at the end of all their concerts from very early on, as a tribute to the queen (not themselves), and so they put it on the end of this album, as it was a night at the opera it clearly had to finish with their trademark bang.

    Sex Pistols did do a version of God Save The Queen (which was banned in England), and that was basically a satire. Although, I don't know about Sid Vicious but Jonny Rotten was definitely a Queen fan, I once heard a story about how he snuck in while Queen was recording, crawled up to Freddie's piano, said "Hello Freddie" and crawled back out again.

    General CommentIf they had the idea from Hendrix, then they would have probably placed it on a previous album. It works very well with the storyline of 'A Night at the Opera'.

    My OpinionPatriotism all the way, and the song definitely sounds better being done by Queen than being done with an orchestra. Otherwise I find it moderately boring, and I'm british myself.

    We need a national anthem more like Italy's. :)
