* ExactWords: Several sources claimed Freddie recorded "Mother Love" when he only had 'a few weeks' left to live, which thousands of fans have incorrectly interpreted as meaning he'd recorded it around October or early November 1991 (he died on the 24th of November that year). Truth is, he finished recording in May, six months before his death. But hey -- 28-30 weeks are 'a few' in the context of a 46-year-old life!



** "Don't Try Suicide", which is about suicide [[note]] while it's nice that Queen are, in fact, not in favour of suicide, the text really sucks as an anti-suicide message, being flippant and dismissive rather than empathetic and supportive [[/note]] but sounds like a reject from ''Theatre/WestSideStory''.

* TheQuietOne: John Deacon, almost literally; he was the only member who didn't sing, and said very little in group interviews, generally only speaking when a question was directed specifically to him. Since the band went their separate ways in 1991, John mostly retired from the music industry, only going back into the studio to record the "No-One But You (Only the Good Die Young)" single. He was later presumably okay with Queen + Paul Rodgers[[note]]once May and Taylor managed to convince him that they weren't ''replacing'' Mercury, something of a BerserkButton for him[[/note]], but declined to take part.

* RuleOfCool: During the video for "Princes of the Universe", Connor [=MacLeod=] from ''Franchise/{{Highlander}}'' challenges Freddie Mercury to a sword fight. The duel ends in a DRAW. Think about that for a second... and Freddie's fighting with his microphone stand.

** In the remix of "Under Pressure" featured in ''Greatest Hits III'', you have Mercury sing / speaking "You say New York is dangerous, even though they say it's not this way" then Bowie going "Even the blind man can see it's not so...", before there's a sudden percussion, and the scream, "'''RAGE!!!!!!'''", where a ''very'' up-tempo version of the song begins.
