No one can cover Queen's songs. Not even Panic! At The Disco, with their cover version of Bohemian Rhapsody for an overrated Hollywood movie, Suicide Squad. Panic! At The Disco have FAILED in reflecting the dark and despair of Bohemian Rhapsody.
A distinctive characteristic of Queen's music are three-part vocal harmonies, which are usually composed of the voices of Brian May, Freddie Mercury, John Deacon, and Roger Taylor. Besides vocal harmonies, Queen were also known for multi-tracking voices to imitate the sound of a large choir through overdubs.
Freddie Mercury the lead singer of Queen, delivered most songs in the tenor range. His vocal range extended from bass low F (F2) to soprano high F (F6). He could belt up to tenor high F (F5).
Brian May the guitarist of Queen, focuses on multi-part harmonies, often more contrapuntal than parallel – a relative rarity for rock guitar. Examples are found in Queen's albums. May explored a wide variety of styles in guitar, including sweep picking, tremolo, tapping, slide guitar, Hendrix sounding licks, tape-delay, and melodic sequences. Some of his solos and orchestral parts were composed by Mercury.
In 1963, the teenage May and his father custom-built his signature guitar, Red Special. Aided by the uniqueness of Red Special, May was often able to create strange, unusual sound effects, and imitate an orchestra. He used his guitar to mimic a trombone, a piccolo, and several other instruments. Queen used a "No synthesizers were used on this album" sleeve note on their early albums to make this clear to the listeners.
Queen's music was combination of acoustic/electric guitar extremes and fantasy-inspired multi-part song epics. Queen composed music that drew inspiration from many different genres of music, often with a tongue-in-cheek attitude. The genres they have been associated with include progressive rock, symphonic rock, art rock, glam rock, hard rock, heavy metal, pop rock, and psychedelic rock.
