The We Are The Champions rockers topped a survey conducted by Virgin Media, who on Tuesday announced the launch of their new channel Vintage TV, after receiving a majority of votes from the British public.

Richard Wheeler, head of content acquisition at Virgin Media, said: "Queen still proves the show must go on as the UK continues to enjoy some of the best songs from the last century on Vintage TV."

Shortly behind the music legends - fronted by the late Freddie Mercury - comes David Bowie, who recently released his first album in a decade, The Next Day.

The top five is completed by soul sensation Stevie Wonder, whose hits include Superstitious and Isn't She Lovely, Little Lies musicians Fleetwood Mac and British rockers Oasis.
