Under Pressure is a favorite of mine. The story behind it is fun and interesting (skip to 1:04:55) :
The whole documentary is amazing, if you haven't seen it before.
And then there's one of the greatest live performances of all time:

My favorite band of all time. Some of my favorite tracks (very tough to decide, changes all the time). Not to mention, this is one of those bands that have some awesome underrate tracks.
The March of the Black Queen
The Show Must Go On
Son and Daughter
The Prophet's Song
Was It All Worth It
The Millionaire Waltz
Fight From The Inside
White Queen (As It Began)
Just a short list of awesome tracks. I tried to mostly stay with non-single tracks, since everybody knows/loves the singles, such as Somebody to Love, Bicycle Race, Don't Stop Me Now, Fat Bottomed Girls, Bohemian Rhapsody, We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions, Killer Queen, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Under Pressure, I Want to Break Free, Radio Ga Ga, etc.

They've made some brilliant songs and Freddie was a great vocalist, but they're overrated in my opinion. The band hasn't released any solid albums in my book, their hits kind of overshadow their album stuff, which often falls into filler. Idk, maybe my taste for them has soured due to their unfortunate association with "neckbeards" and such.

I usually explain how good an artist is by how much "good" they've done compared to how much "bad" they've done musically (in some cases visually).
Just out of curiosity, where have you seen "neckbeards" associating/associated with Queen? I hear them associated with Wayne's World more than anything else.
Even if you hate them (not saying you do, Camerabob), you can at least laugh at this masterpiece:

I've got to credit Axel for getting me more interested in Queen as of late. What a fantastic band! I had grown up hearing them on the radio and loved how pure Freddie's voice sounded. (His voice is one of the few that doesn't look like shapeless "fog" to me. It registers as a brilliant white line.) I think it's pretty cool that Brian May has a Ph.D in Astrophysics, too.
I'm slowly collecting the albums on vinyl and getting a few CDs here and there; I've yet to hear a bad song from them. I currently have Jazz and The Game on vinyl and Greatest Hits I and Classic Queen on CD. (Thank goodness for the record shop by my college. They'll be getting a lot of business from me this year. )
