Rock music and cinema have always been intertwined, and few bands have had a greater impact on both than Queen. The British rock band, fronted by the legendary Freddie Mercury, created some of the most iconic anthems in the history of rock music. These songs have not only inspired generations of musicians but also provided the perfect soundtrack to many memorable movie moments. Here are 10 Queen anthems that rocked the big screen:

“We Will Rock You” – A Knight’s Tale (2001)
The opening scene of A Knight’s Tale sees a group of medieval peasants chant to the beat of Queen’s “We Will Rock You.” This unlikely pairing of rock royalty and medieval fantasy creates an unforgettable moment that perfectly captures the film’s irreverent tone.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” – Wayne’s World (1992)
The ultimate sing-along anthem, “Bohemian Rhapsody” is the perfect choice for Wayne’s World’s famous car scene. The head-banging, lip-syncing and air-guitaring antics of Wayne and Garth, perfectly capture the playful spirit of the song.

“Flash” – Flash Gordon (1980)
Queen’s pulsating rock score perfectly complements the campy and colourful sci-fi adventure that is Flash Gordon. The film’s iconic opening sequence is accompanied by the electrifying strains of “Flash,” which sets the tone for the rest of the film.

“Don’t Stop Me Now” – Shaun of the Dead (2004)

“Killing zombies to the beat of Queen” was the pitch for the zombie-comedy Shaun of the Dead, and it doesn’t disappoint. The use of “Don’t Stop Me Now” during the film’s frenzied zombie attack scene adds to the film’s humor and energy.

“Somebody To Love” – Ella Enchanted (2004)

Ella Enchanted is a modern retelling of Cinderella, and the use of “Somebody to Love” perfectly captures the film’s sense of fun and adventure. Anne Hathaway’s singing voice, combined with the song’s soaring harmonies, makes for a memorable musical moment.

“Radio Ga Ga” – Trainspotting (1996)

Trainspotting is a dark and gritty film about heroin addiction, but the use of “Radio Ga Ga” adds a touch of whimsy to the otherwise bleak film.

“One Vision” – Iron Eagle (1986)

The use of “One Vision” during the film’s climactic air battle adds to the film’s adrenaline-fueled excitement.

“The Show Must Go On” – Moulin Rouge! (2001)

The epic musical extravaganza that is Moulin Rouge! features a breath-taking medley of Queen songs, but the use of “The Show Must Go On” during the film’s emotional finale is particularly poignant. The song’s lyrics perfectly encapsulate the film’s theme of perseverance and determination.

“Somebody to Love” – Happy Feet (2006)

Queen’s music might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a film about dancing penguins, but the use of “Somebody to Love” during Happy Feet’s climactic dance-off is pure joy.

“Flash” – Blades of Glory (2007)

Blades of Glory is a comedy about two male figure skaters who team up to compete in pairs skating. The use of “Flash” during their final performance is both hilarious and exhilarating.
