Innuendo is the opening track of the album of the same name by the rock band Queen. At approx 6.5 minutes long it is one of Queen's longest songs and longest ever single, lasting even longer than Bohemian Rhapsody. Innuendo went straight in the UK single charts at number one and featured a flamenco guitar section performed by Brain May and Yes guitarist Steve Howe. It is considered to be one of the band's darkest works, dealing with mankind's inability to live together in peace, with lyrics inspired by Freddie Mercury's illness.
