    To quote Lady Gaga, don't be a drag, just be a Queen. (That's from the title track of Born This Way, in case the reference eludes you!)

    Queen are rock royalty and they will be named BMI Icons at the organization's annual London Awards on Oct.4. Congrats, your highness!

    What are BMI Icons? They are songwriters who have had "a unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers." Queen's Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon join a list of past honorees that includes Van Morrison, Donovan, the Bee Gees, James Brown, Willie Nelson and more.

    What is your favorite Queen song? Mine is "Fat Bottomed Girls!"
