Well, Queen got snubbed again from the top 10 (last year, Bo Rhap was 13), so here's how Queen placed. The listeners voted... and you shouldn't be surprised to know what number 1 is:
19 :: Bohemian Rhapsody
107 :: Fat Bottom Girls
121 :: Somebody To Love
168 :: Under Pressure
186 :: We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions
292 :: Killer Queen
378 :: You’re My Best Friend
445 :: Another One Bites The Dust
652 :: Crazy Little Thing Called Love
830 :: Tie Your Mother Down
979 :: It's Late
Sooo that's it for Queen.
This one kills me!:
1000 :: Final Countdown :: Europe
I'm gonna smoke me the highest quality refer (Pot), pop a tab of acid and try to relate to what these voters listen to, because some of these songs are beyond comprehension. I could understand the Beatles and maybe Sairway to Heaven as # 4 or 5 but Born To Run? That song is more bland than Poi! I live in New York and I never get use to these Polls.

A verrrryyyyy strange list
Queen on number 19 (We are the Champions and BoRap should be in the Top Ten)
Van Halen on number 95 (Jump), no KISS in the top hundred .... and one of the best songs of the eighties (Final Countdown) is Nr. 1000
its still a great song though (stairway to heaven). i actually love it (especially backwards...thats so funny)
but i have to agree with the majority of you, bo rap and WATC should be in the top 10, or at least 20!
Considering that it's an American list, Queen didn't do so bad.
Q 104.3 is very Queen friendly, and they play more Queen than than the average American classic rock station.
Keep in mind that most classic rock station in America play Led Zepppelin, The Stones, Pink Floyd, and The Who like there was nothing else worth listening to.

Stairway To Heaven is undeniably a superb song, OK arguably it might not be the best song of all time but it's indeed one of the best songs and deserves a top 10 or top 20 on every best song ever list.
Compared to Rolling Stone mag, Q 104.3 made a great list. Bob Dylan's 'Like A Rolling Stone' might have great lyrics, but musically the song is a piece of shit. I wouldn't even consider putting it, or any other Bob Dylan song on the Top 1000.
Bob Dylan should have definitely stuck to poetry, because even William Hung sings better than he does.
I agree about Q104. I'm not a fan of radio stations in general because they tend to overplay songs to death, but Q104 is definitely top-notch in comparison. Especially when it comes to playing Queen.
My favorite DJ is Ian O'Malley. The majority of times that I've heard non-playlist Queen songs on that station, it has been during his shift. One time he put on the Live at Wembley CD and just let it run for a few songs because he was enjoying it so much. Told everyone to go out and buy the DVD too.
