Definately the best rock band in history, with such kick-ass songs as "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Brighton Rock". Lead singer Freddie Mercury died in early 90s, and they split up soon afterwards.
No modern day music is in the same league as Queen.

One of the 5 boroughs of The City of New York. Virtually impossible to get around without a car. Despite being exceedingly large, is mainly devoid of subway transport and reliable bus transport. An economically diverse area, though the changes are gradual, there is a sharp contrast between sets of not too far away neighborhoods. Shares south boarder with Brooklyn.
A. I used to live in Queens, but now I moved to Brooklyn.

B. To get to my friend's house, I had to take two trains and then a bus! And I still had to walk ten effin' blocks!

C. It's like, you travel down Union Turnpike, and you are suddenly in Kew Gardens, and it's like... woah... where did all these trees and houses come from?

D. I can take the G train straight up to Queens!

Something having eminence or supremacy in a given domain and personified as a woman.

Not to be confused with quean which is also a Scottish phrase for a young lady.
Paris is regarded as the queen of cities.

New York City's greatest borough.
Queens makes the Bronx look like a cesspool...Wait, shit...the Bronx DOES look like a cesspool!

-A Canadian 20 dollar bill (so called, as it has a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the front).

This term is in frequent use throughout the province of Newfoundland, and perhaps further throughout Canada. Primarily associated with "skeets" (see definition).
"Buddy. Can ya lend me a queen? I needs ta get some weed."
