Last week, the Monday Moustache was awarded to an athletic champion; this week, it goes to a Killer Queen.
Freddie Mercury, lead singer of Queen and notable 'stache enthusiast, was not just a rock god, but a force of nature. When Queen sings that "We Will Rock You", you have to believe it. After all, they are the champions.
The ballad/opera/rock attack "Bohemian Rhapsody" actually breaks Newton's laws of physics. The song's waveform fluctuates throughout the different sections so drastically it looks like Richard Nixon's lie detection test results.

Even Lady Gaga's name is derivative of Queen; She was told (early in her career) that her vocals are reminiscent of Freddie Mercury, and she used his song "Radio Gaga" to create her stage identity. Freddy didn't need to wear a dress made of cheeseburger.
|Not a gay icon?|
Freddie's life is full of mythology, some being true and some false. For example, despite his status as a gay icon, he had a long-term relationship with a woman (Mary Austin) whom he felt was his one true friend. However, he was certainly not bound by heterosexuality, and his constant flings eroded any monogamous relationships. Neither men nor women could resist his 'stache.
