  • The second single off of The Subways debut album Young for Eternity, "Rock 'n' Roll Queen" was the group's breakthrough song and far and away their biggest single. It is not to be confused with the similarly titled Mott the Hoople song.
  • This was widely used in media, including on video game soundtracks (EA Sports Rugby 06, FIFA Street 2, Saints Row 2, Pure, Forza Horizon), advertising campaigns (Rimmel), TV (The O.C.) and films (Live Free Or Die Hard and RocknRolla - the latter of which features the band in a cameo in the film performing the song live in a bar).
