With a new band biopic in theaters, British hard rock legends Queen are riding a resurgence of popularity. Behind the personalities and onscreen drama, Roots this week examines the lasting heavy metal legacy of these larger-than-life originators. Listen for heavy outings by Queen themselves, plus tributes from players across the metal kingdom, including Lemmy, Metallica, Scanner, Testament, Night Demon, Heathen, Between the Buried and Me, Bruce Dickinson, and others. The music is always better than the movie—know your Roots!
