Both are great, but Ogre Battle is that next level of great. Live they're probably equal, but in the studio Queen went buzzerk on Ogre Battle, whereas Rush just hammered Bastille Day out.

I love both songs and both bands, but the nod here goes to Bastille Day

Bastille Day was the first track I heard of Rush...ever...on ATWAS. Took me about a minute to be sold for life. "Oh my God...WTF changes keys about 6 times during the guitar solo?"

I have to go with Ogre Battle but it's close, on another day I might go with Bastille Day.

She's strong yes, but she's no fair maiden.

I admit I'm not real familiar with deep cuts in the Queen material, so I gave this a good 3-4 listens. Good rock song, but it sounds like there's too many disparate parts crammed into one song and it doesn't flow well. Too many stops and starts. The beginning is trippy and cool though and the Bytor-ish break is cool as well.

But Bastille is top 10 Rush for me, so it's still not close.

Vampires suck and are overrated.
Queen suck at sucking.
Double suck negative becomes a suck positive! Wait... :unsure:

Queen rock. Just watch that Live Aid performance.
(I voted for Bastille Day btw)

Btw2: Not liking Queen could get you kicked out of Quebec and banished to the Magdalen Islands. :(
The debut is a pretty fun rock album.

Bastille Day by a lot. This is not one of my favorite Queen songs. I agree that it just feels like it’s patched together.
