Watch Chad Michaels, Manila Luzon & More 'Drag Race' Queens Guess Which Rock Band Wore Drag in Their Music Video

A handful of RuPaul’s Drag Race queens were put to the test by Billboard Pride when they were asked which rock band donned drag for the music video for their 1984 hit song “I Want to Break Free” -- given the options of either Pink Floyd, Queen or The Rolling Stones.

Most queens -- including Trixie Mattel, Raja, Detox and Trinity Taylor (hers is a lucky guess) -- answer correctly with Queen. “If [Freddie Mercury] was still alive, music would not be what it is today,” says Morgan McMichaels. Chad Michaels, who also answers correctly, sings the song in the style of Cher, adding, “I can turn any song into a Cher song!”

Meanwhile, Kim Chi incorrectly guesses Pink Floyd and Manila Luzon inaccurately opts for The Rolling Stones.
