I normally hear "Simply The Best" for sporting events, I'd prefer "We Are The Champions", more people get up and shake their fists triumphantly in the air, and I think it's pi$$ funny to see idiots doing that. hahaha. I can't say I think the song is that great though.
Because I chose to play the fool in a six-piece band,
First-night nerves every one-night stand.
I should be glad to be so inclined.
What a waste! What a waste!
But I don't mind.

I would say Bohemian rhapsody is a way better song. The lyrics in we are the champions are so self congratulatory that I can barely tell whether Freddie Mercury was kidding or serious when he wrote that song. I kind of like it, but seriously I have to laugh every time I hear it.

the song is just boring. greatest song of all time? like a rolling stone!
Painstaking devotion and love
Surrendered to self preservation
From others who care for themselves
A blindness that touches perfection
But hurts just like anything else
Isolation, isolation, isolation

This guys posting style reminds me of someone. Hmmm...........
I love Queen, but We Are the Champions, yeah lets just say that song has been very overexposed. Not just on the radio but everywhere, its appeared in countless movies, tv shows and commercials, usually for some kind of gag, same goes for We Will Rock You. I mean overexposure has hurt a lot of great songs, but I never considered these to be great songs in the first place.
I've always prefered Queen for their more progressive stuff. Sheer Heart Attack and Night at The Opera are my favorite albums from them.
Also. There is no greatest song of all time.
It's only knock n' knowall, but I like it
