On This Day In 1977 Queen Delivered 'News Of The World'

Released on this day in 1977, News of the World is the sixth studio album by Queen. In 1977, punk rock sparked a massive backlash towards progressive artists like Queen, to which the band responded by simplifying their sound and embracing a more spontaneous hard rock sound. Featuring the anthems "We Will Rock You / We Are The Champions" as well as "Sheer Heart Attack" and one of my all-time fave Queen songs "Get Down Make Love" the album went 4x platinum in the United States, and would sell over 10 million copies worldwide, and became the band's best-selling studio album to date.
