Freddie Mercury Gets the LEGO Rock Band Treatment

The late vocal legend Freddie Mercury and the rest of Queen will be making their appearance as playable characters in LEGO Rock Band.

I’m not going to lie: The above video brought a smile to my face. Not only is the LEGO-ified Freddie Mercury kind of adorable, but I’ve been wanting to play as Queen in one of these games ever since Guitar Hero started adding real rockers to its lineup, and LEGO Rock Band will let us do that with “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions.” This, of course, combines two of the “best songs to belt out while falling-over-drunk” with one of the best party activities to do while falling-over-drunk. Which is, of course, nothing but inherently awesome.

I can’t help but wonder if the Queen guys – Mercury, Brian May, and the other ones who nobody ever remembers – will be playable on non-Queen songs as well, or if they’ll just be limited to the band’s repertoire. If the former, then I can’t help but wonder if we’ll get the same sort of outcry that we did when the late Kurt Cobain was given the same treatment in the latest Guitar Hero.

But then again, Freddie Mercury would have probably been a slightly better sport about the whole thing than Kurt Cobain, don’t you think?
