The song "We Will Rock You" off the 1977 Queen album News of the World is the easily recognizable rock anthem characterized by its iconic beat. Although the song is nearly 40-years-old, it is still a "pump up music" staple, made evident if you have ever attended a minor league sporting event.

Now you can hear "We Will Rock You" the song like you've never heard it before in this recently released version played at a much faster tempo.

In the '70s, BBC recorded six radio sessions with Queen, during one of which this alternate version of the hit song was created. It was never officially released until now, and will be on the upcoming 2-disc set Queen On Air: The Complete BBC Sessions.

If you're not a fan of the sped-up version, you can always rock out to the original. Makes me want to go to a baseball game.
