** The video game series ''VideoGame/OgreBattle'' is full of references to the band. Two of the games' subtitles are song titles (''[[Videogame/OgreBattleTheMarchOfTheBlackQueen The March of the Black Queen]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TacticsOgre Let Us Cling Together]]''). The Seven Seas of Rhye exist in the game's world and a unit of ''Videogame/OgreBattle64'' is the Vultan (upgraded from Hawkman). As in Prince Vultan, from ''Film/{{Flash Gordon|1980}}'', whose soundtrack Queen provided.
** Both Redfield siblings from the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' series seem to be Queen fans. Chris owned a bomber jacket with "Made in Heaven" emblazoned on the back, while his sister Claire had two biker vests, one with the same "Made in Heaven" design and another with "Let Me Live".
** ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''. It helps that the man behind the series is a huge fan and has an AuthorAvatar in the cast.

* ImportantHaircut: Freddie, Roger and John all had long hair in the 1970's, but then appeared with shorter hair around the time of ''News of the World'', which represented new directions in the group's style. Freddie's famous mustache, which he grew around the time of ''The Game'' and the ''Film/FlashGordon'' soundtrack, also accompanied changes to Queen's sound. Only Brian May has kept the same haircut (huge, dark, and curly) for the past 40 years; one of his conditions for Queen's inclusion in ''LEGO Rock Band'' was that they portray his hair accurately.

The band is often thought to have broken up after Mercury died of AIDS in 1991. While that isn't quite true, the band chose not to replace Mercury, and stopped virtually all activity besides a posthumous album with Mercury's previously recorded vocals in 1995 and one single in 1997. Deacon officially retired from the band soon afterwards. May and Taylor have continued to record and tour in collaboration with other musicians under the "Queen + ..." moniker, which resulted in one album, ''The Cosmos Rocks'' with [[Music/BadCompany Paul Rodgers]] as singer. The album was greeted with critical disdain and a fan backlash over the perceived nature of Rodgers as a ReplacementScrappy, despite May and Taylor repeatedly pointing out that he was only a featured artist and not a replacement for Mercury. ([[FanDumb Ho hum.]]) Rodgers parted with the band in 2009, and subsequently the group performed with former ''Series/AmericanIdol'' contestant Music/AdamLambert in 2011, and continues to do so to this day.

'''Queen''' is a famous British rock band known for their style which combines hard rock, massed vocal harmonies, Music/BrianMay's intricately arranged and highly overdubbed guitar work, catchy pop melodies, surreal humour and flamboyant, theatrical performances (which the band was steered towards chiefly by Mercury). The band was formed in 1970 with front-man Music/FreddieMercury (born Farrokh Bulsara), guitarist Music/BrianMay and drummer Roger Taylor. After going through a series of short-term bassists, they finally settled with John Deacon in 1971.

* BrokenAesop: "Radio Ga Ga" is all about how music video is ruining music and we should all just listen to the radio instead. The accompanying music video features lavish sets and costumes, footage from the film ''{{Metropolis}}'' and a montage of clips of music videos from earlier Queen songs.
