"We Will Rock You" is a song written by Brian May and recorded by Queen for their 1977 album News of the World. Other than the last 30 seconds containing a guitar solo by May, the song is generally set in a cappella form, using only stomping and clapping as a rhythmic body percussion beat. Since its release, the song has become a cliche at sports events around the world as a stadium anthem, mostly due to its simple rhythm.
