A backdrop for the girls and boys
Who just don't know or just don't care
And just complain when you're not there
You had your time, you had the power
You've yet to have your finest hour

Freddie Mercury (September 5, 1946 – November 24, 1991), born Farrokh Bulsara, was a Parsi-British musician, most famous as the lead singer of the rock band Queen. As a performer, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and powerful vocals over a four-octave range. As a songwriter, Mercury composed many hits for Queen, including "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Killer Queen," and "We Are the Champions." He died of bronchopneumonia induced by HIV (AIDS), only a day after going public with an announcement of his illness. His Wikipedia entry is an amzing read, every single album by Queen is epic, and Queen's live performances are the stuff of legend.
Their 1985 appearance at Wembley Arena during Live Aid is... well, I'll just quote TV Tropes: "Freddie Mercury took a hundred thousand people into the palm of his hand and led them to heaven. Their set during the Live Aid event was recently voted the Greatest Live Gig By Any Band EVER, and there have been very few dissenters from this opinion." Thanks to the magic of YouTube, you too can bear witness to the greatest 25 minutes of rock`n`roll ever performed.
Seriously, the Live Aid performance is beyond amazing. Watch the Redio Ga Ga portion if nothing else, Freddie Mercury gets 100,000 people to clap in unison during the refrain... It must be seen to be believed. Even that doesn't really do justice, because of the sheer size of the crowd and the speed of sound being a constant, you can actually see a "wave" passing through the crowd as each row clapped a millisecond later than the one before as the sound reached their ears.
Queen is also responsible for the only good part of Countdown to Final Crisis, when Flash Rogue Pied Piper destroys the planet Apokolips by playing "The Show Must Go On." The power of Queen is so great that a cover of their greatest song can nuke the home of the New Gods.
I'm not sure if J-Mart is still accepting merchandise from outside suppliers, but I thought I'd leave this here anyway.
