Brian May, the lead guitarist for the rock band Queen, has voiced his views on the legendary rock band The Beatles, claiming that they should have their own biopic similar to 'Bohemian Rhapsody' as they are currently "underrepresented."

In a February 2022 interview, May stated, "The Beatles were our Bible. Absolutely at every stage in their career and their music development, they were models. And they still are to me, I must say. I love all those albums. To me, they are the greatest," outlining how the Beatles impacted his generation. May continued, "They are the pinnacle of the writing, performance, and ethos of rock music. They broke down so many barriers, they changed the world many times. I will always love the Beatles without any reservation," and stated his desire to see an absolutely stellar biography of The Beatles, as per Express.

May believes that The Beatles' contribution to society today is not given enough credit. He stated, "I feel like they've been underrepresented in the world as it is today. The kids today don't know the Beatles as much as they ought to. The Beatles should be woven into people's lives in the way Queen music is these days."

May's desires didn't seem to appeal to many of the people online who shared their views via Twitter. One individual wrote, "I feel like there's no way to stress hard enough what a bad idea this would be. We don't need a biopic of a band that's been studied and analysed to death, and that we already have about 14 films to cover their early days/post breakup days. It couldn't be any good." A user wrote, "Agree 100%. Now, what would be a killer biopic is the story of Badfinger!" Another individual wrote, "A biopic, sure. A biopics like 'Bohemian Rhapsody'?" tweeting a GIF of Leonardo DiCaprio mouthing the phrase "Absolutely F*****g Not." A third person strongly disapproving of May wrote, "Too hard to find the right actors. We know them so well, their mannerisms and voices, it just wouldn't work." One user said, "They don’t need a stupid biopic. They already have this."

A user quipped, "For people who agree with this take, they need to watch a hard day’s night and just shut up about it." Mocking the Queen's biopic, one user stated, "I don't think we need anymore movies like Bohemian Rhapsody lmao." Another said, "NO. i fear it will be butchered so bad." A netizen sarcastically wrote, "Yeah cuz bohemian rhapsody was so good and told a very historically accurate story...." "There's already like f*****g 40 of them," wrote a user. One social media user simply said, "Actually no we don't."
