    In a dystopian future, an evil man called Foster has conquered the human race.

    It is time for his coronation and he looks for a song to glorify himself and his acolytes. One of his minions is tasked with finding an appropriate song befitting his grandiose delusions.

    After much searching through the annals of music history, this minion finalises a centuries' old hit called "We Are The Champions" by a band from the past called Queen... but, it is too bright... too uplifting... It is important for the song to be powerful but, at the same time keep the public frightened...

    So, the evil minion, in order to please his master omits the changeover from the root note minor key to the 4th note major key at the chorus... and evilizes the song. There isn't enough time to modify the lyrics to make them suitably oppresive... So, they go with the original words and glower angrily down upon their subjects.

    With flags fluttering and the common masses cowering, Foster assumes his place as ruler of the world.

    Later on, the minion is executed by firing squad for poor production values and having destroyed such a classic track.

    Thanks @au38wzh ... Yes... I did see the film... And ive been re-listening their music obsessively since I first saw the films promos... So much so that my 4 year old twins now sing this song(the original) with ardent fervour! :)

    @Recoil ... Thanks brother! :)

    Nice story, nice cover version.
    The instruments are a bit too far in the background, imho.

    Thanks @No Avenger :)

    By far in the background, do you mean in relation to the vocals? Levels too low?

    Thanks a lot!

    This is a bit off topic but I heard a remix of "Another One Bites the Dust" if I remember correctly on the radio once, I was having a bad day and didn't catch the version title but the vocal was redone in such an amazing way that I can still hear it resonating in my head, the vocal had so much heat and really kept building until the end using just vocal and sparse instrumentation which was so epic, but I could never find it again. Will never forget but Queen is legendary :wink::speaker::speaker:

    Yep, too low, compared to drums, bass, vocals.
    Btw, whose vocals are this?

    @Kinghtsurfer : I thought it's your voice. Unique and very good to my ears :wink:
    Love to hear about your twins singing Queen! Why don't you make a cover version with their voices?

    Have a nice day!

    Thanks @au38wzh ... You are much too kind... I would love to do a song with the twins... If i can keep them still for 3 minutes straight...:)

    @superliquidsunshine ... Thank you Sire... Keeping up with the twins is a major task for sure... But it helps keep us young at heart... Both physically and mentally... Hahaha...
