Queen formed in 1971 and in 1973 signed their first recording contract for EMI. That year they released their first album, Queen. The same year saw their first major UK tour, and in 1974 they released Queen II as well as making their first UK headlining tour. They made their first US tour, and in November released Sheer Heart Attack which was a hit on both sides of the Atlantic. 1975 saw their new release, A Night At The Opera, and – significantly – the single Bohemian Rhapsody. The following year saw two major US tours, the band’s sixth album, News Of The World and the legendary double A side single, We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions. 1978’s Jazz, included another huge hit single in Bicycle Race and Queen toured the US and Canada.

Queen’s debut album, a mix of progressive rock, heavy metal, and/or hard rock, showcases songs by Freddie Mercury (frontman, primary vocalist and pianist) and Brian May (lead guitarist), with one track by drummer Roger Taylor. After many passed-on bass players, it was John Deacon who finally became Queen’s official bass player in January 1971. And so this first album was ripe with Queen’s signature vocal harmonies, intricate production arrangements, and songwriting prowess, with producers Roy Thomas Baker and John Anthony at the helm, who were crucial in lauding the band to the owners of Trident studios, which booked paying acts such as David Bowie and Elton John, making Queen’s free use of the studio during.
Indeed, Queen may be the first truly fascist band. The whole thing makes me wonder why anyone would indulge these creeps and their polluting ideas. In fairness, Roger Taylor admitted there were aspects of the Jazz album - despite containing the hits Fat Bottomed Girls, Bicycle Race, and Don’t Stop Me Now - that were mixed. We felt Jazz was not one of our finest hours, he told The Billboard Book of Number One Albums. It had its moments, but on the whole, it was rather unsatisfying. It wouldn’t until be 1991's Innuendo, the last studio album released during Mercury’s lifetime, that Queen made a return to its majestic hard rock sound of the 70s. But the fact that the band went for quite something artistically different and fresh with The Game was a brave and ballsy move that distinguished the group from its arena-rock peers.
