* TroubledProduction: The movie, ‘’Bohemian Rhapsody,’’ for years now, has fallen victim to disagreements between key figures involved, keeping it in DecelopmentHell. Creator/SachaBaronCohen was set to star as Freddie at one point, only to leave over a disagreement with Brian May and Roger Taylor. Their vision of the film involved Freddie’s death occurring [[DecoyProtagonist halfway through]] and the rest of the film [[HalfwayPlotSwitch focusing on the band coping and living on without him]], which would relegate much of Queen’s most interesting pieces of history-as well as its most beloved member-to the first half of the story. Eventually, in late 2017, then-director Bryan Singer was fired after multiple disputes with Rami Malek (now playing Freddie) and simply not showing up on set for wide periods of time. Queen fans may need to keep sitting tightly.

* [[AuthorExistenceFailure Artist Existence Failure]]: Freddie died a tragic death from AIDS. He kept it a closely guarded secret and only went public with it less than 24 hours before his death. It has to be said though that there were quite a few hints in their songs and in the fact that Freddie hadn't appeared in any music video since "These Are the Days of Our Lives".

** Both Deacon and Taylor publicly panned ''Jazz'' and ''Hot Space''. The latter was defended by May (who claims that without it there'd have been no ''Music/{{Thriller}}'' - (Music/MichaelJackson agreed that their album was an influence on him) and Mercury (whose debut solo album is basically a ''Hot Space'' II).

* CutSong:
** They have quite a few, some of which are merely unfinished demos. Several are arguably finished, but simply weren't used anywhere. In a more conventional use of the trope, they also have a few B-Sides that many fans argue to this day would've made excellent album tracks. Examples include "A Human Body" from ''The Game'' sessions, "Soul Brother" from the ''Hot Space'' sessions, and "Lost Opportunity" from the ''Innuendo'' sessions. Notably, by those points in time, the first and third of those songs were not sung by Freddie.
** Of the "finished songs that weren't used at all" variety, we have "Dog with a Bone", a track that was most likely recorded between ''A Kind of Magic'' and ''The Miracle''. Likewise, "Face It Alone" (which was recorded in a rough but complete form some point afterwards) is also a notable unused track. Both songs exist around the Internet in varying quality, but always with unavoidable artefacts (such as static being very audible).
