Join us as we dissect this lesser-known gem The Hitman off of Queen's 1991 album, 'Innuendo.' We'll explore the song's hard-hitting lyrics, its pulsating rhythm, and the raw energy that makes it a standout in Queen's diverse catalogue. We'll delve into how "The Hitman" showcases the band's ability to blend rock and pop elements, creating a sound that's uniquely their own.
We share our personal interpretations of the song, discuss its place in Queen's discography, and explore its reception among fans and critics. We'll also delve into the song's connection to the band members, particularly Brian May, who isn't credited with writing the heavy guitar riff that drives the song.
