Queen are a British rock band that formed in London in 1970. Their best known line-up was Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (lead guitar, vocals), Roger Taylor (drums, vocals), and John Deacon (bass guitar).
During their heyday Queen were one of the best-selling bands in the world. Another One Bites the Dust (1980) became their best-selling single, while their 1981 Greatest Hits compilation album is the still the best-selling album in the UK and is certified eight times platinum in the USA.
Estimates of their record sales range from 150 million to 300 million records. Queen received the Outstanding Contribution to British Music Award from the British Phonographic Industry in 1990. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.
