Radio GaGa

Electric six have re-relased queens Radio Ga-Ga

This song is a masterpiece, im glad it has been brought back to the radio, however the video is disgusting, mocking freddie for being a homosexual.
It seems to me electric six's work is self perpetuating in a way, are they trying to achieve freddie's dream by repulsing people who arent homophobic, and making them listen to it on the radio rather than on TV?
With the success of gay bar it seems they're peeing on people who they needed for sucess.
The fact that they havent actually changed the song is surely testament to queens song writing prowess, so why insult brian may by having a poodle play guitar??? Theyre persicuting a man for having a perm

They say parody is the greatest form of compliment, however i feel this parody is neither witty or tasteful, and is such a insulting travesty

  1. Do you think maybe they just like being controversial for the sake of it? They'd probably love your blog, just because they were getting a reaction. and as you say, the fact that they are covering the song in the first place is quite a compliment. I'm not sure the lightbulb-flashing, creepful video to Danger, High Voltage was advocating being a smarmy, sexually-inept and completely abnormal freak. In the same way, I don't think that they are insulting Brian May either. For more on parody and travesty, check out some of my favorite (you know it's true) 18th Century Literature… mmm hmm link
