Comment:

Surprisingly, there are very few Queen covers out there, and even fewer that are any good. I don't think there's all that much else out there that didn't make the final cut, in fact (and yes, I know Travis did a cover of "Killer Queen", but it sounds identical to the Queen version, and frankly Sugarbomb's version is more interesting.) This mix pretty much jumps from avant-hard (Glass Candy) to epic industrial (Laibach, on what is probably the mix's best track) to country (Hayseed Dixie) to ska (the Busters) to dance (Dune) to pop (Sugarbomb) and everything in between... A testament to the universal appeal and influence of the Bohemian Rhapsodists. Rock on, Freddie, wherever you are.

Quality mix! There's also Electric 6 cover of Radio Ga-Ga but I think you would have to get it off of a bootleg of a gig! They usually play it as part of their set, but sometimes it has the same problem as Travis (being just too similar)
