I wouldn’t say the Queen is one of my favorites bands, but I do enjoy a great deal of their music. And of course, it’s always fun to combine two things I enjoy.. So, as promised when I posted the Maid Dragon AMV, here’s a collection of anime AMV’s that use Queen for their music.
Hit the jump, and let’s rock!
Since it’s currently airing… I’ll lead off with One Punch Man / We Will Rock You. The video features both Saitama and Genos beating the tar out of various bad guys.
Based mostly on the fights in My Hero Academia’s U.S.J. arc… The maker nicely matches the action to the lyrics. I’m particularly fond of the sequence concentrating on All Might (pay attention to the lyrics).
I tried hard to find an AMV that used “Another One Bites The Dust”, just couldn’t find one that I liked… Random trivia, “Another One Rides The Bus” is the first Weird Al song I ever heard. In fact, I was riding the (school) bus when I heard it. I don’t know why that’s stuck with me for near to forty years, but it has.
If there’s one AMV in this collection that I had to nominate for the best match of character and song… I think casting Faye Valentine as the Killer Queen would probably get the nod. And whoa, when I was putting tags on this post, I had to create a Cowboy Bebop tag… Can’t believe I’m well into my third year of blogging and I haven’t mentioned Bebop before!
Also speaking of Bebop, I have a playlist of Bebop AMV’s I’ve been trying to whittle down for over a year now. I may just have to give up and make a series of posts…
Unsurprisingly, there are a ton of AMV’s that use “We Are The Champions”… And there were a lot that, as per Sturgeon’s Law, could be easily easily discarded. This video has been sitting in the draft of this post for weeks, somehow it seems especially poignant after the events so far this season. (For future readers of this post, Season 3 Part 2 – up through about episode 6 or 7.)
No, it’s not anime… But I am a huge MCU fan, and this is a very cool AMV so I couldn’t resist including it.
There you have it, I hope you enjoyed this collection! Drop a comment, let me know what you thought, and let’s chat.
P.S. What’s your favorite Queen song?
