If You Can't Beat Them (4:15)

"If You Can't Beat Them" was another Hard Rock composition by John Deacon and was a live favourite for the band in late '70s. It is one of the few songs by Deacon where May plays all the guitars and contains a guitar solo of over two minutes, making it one of the longest guitar solos in a Queen song.

  • QUEEN FUCKING RULES. that is all.
  • Don't let them get you down... <3
  • its phaser obviously. anyway good song!
  • Great! \o/
  • outdated maybe, good point. sounds a bit like a filter though and out-dated today = in tomorrow ;)
  • @BalladBombs: The flanger would be a bit outdated I guess... :-)
  • actually one of my favourite Queen tunes! Just imagine, that this would have never been released up to now and this would actually be the NEW Queen single. beats C_lebrity by miles and it still sounds fresh and kicking and could become a big hit!!!
  • Yeah, John Deacon really writes some pretty good songs. He's like the group's secret weapon.
