    Nah, the Queen tune is played in sports events/arenas around the world. The first three notes is usually all that's needed to get the crowd to respond, start stomping their feet and clapping their hands. Personally I like the Deep Purple better, but I'll have to go with the We Will Rock You on this one.

    The seinfeld theme, because whenever a bassist slaps they're playing the seinfeld theme. :rollseyes:

    I agree,though it might be the world's most overrated tune.
     
  6. this is our debate at work, something radio stations will play (so no Happy bday type songs).

    so, I thought, lets get some opinions

    I imagine the most recognizeable song is probably some religious crap like "Amazing Grace" or something.
     
  8. heck, if those townspeople from A Knight's Tale we're chanting We Will Rock You back in the Middle Ages, I guess it must be very popular, quite possibly more popular than Smoke On the Water, since Deep Purple wasn't around until the 70s. Does it smell of bacon in here?
