Thread Name: Freddie Mercury's 65th....
Subject: RE: Freddie Mercury's 65th....
It's ironic, I think, that two of sporting life's most masculine, nay MACHO, anthems came from this decidedly non-masculine character. Indeed, a lot of fellows who fancy themselves "real men" would probably have disliked Freddie Mercury intensely, perhaps violently.
Namely, "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions."
Which latter, by the way, includes the ubiquitous juvenile taunt as part of the tune: "Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah!"
