You Will Not Even Recognize This LIVE Version of Queen’s “We Will Rock You”!

You Will Not Even Recognize This LIVE Version of Queen’s “We Will Rock You”! | Society Of Rock Videos

Fast Paced Rock

Although we all know and love the iconic “slow” version of “We Will Rock You“, Queen actually originally recorded this in a more upbeat, rocker tone and performed it live in Japan, in 1979.

The live footage of this performance was released in the “Queen Absolute Greatest Videos“, a compilation album of the greatest and most memorable Queen performances and moments.

As this sport related ballad is known to build throughout the song, this quicker, rock version of the song really gets us up on our feet just like the Japanese audience in the video.

Fun Fact: Queen guitarist Brian May wrote this, and claimed the idea for the song came in a dream.

Sporting his jazzed out, police themed outfit, Freddie really knows how to bring up the tempo and deliver any type of version of this song to get the crowd going.

This may actually be our favorite version… What do you think?

+ We Will Rock You Lyrics +

Buddy you’re a boy make a big noise
Playin’ in the street gonna be a big man some day
You got mud on yo’ face
You big disgrace
Kickin’ your can all over the place
Singin’

We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you

Buddy you’re a young man hard man
Shouting in the street gonna take on the world some day
You got blood on yo’ face
You big disgrace
Wavin’ your banner all over the place

We will we will rock you
Sing it
We will we will rock you

Buddy you’re an old man poor man
Pleadin’ with your eyes gonna make
You some peace some day
You got mud on your face
Big disgrace
Somebody betta put you back into your place

We will we will rock you
Sing it
We will we will rock you
Everybody
We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you
Alright
