my girlfriend's older brother used to be OBSESSED with Queensryche.
My personal experience with this band was being in 6th grade at a christian school and a kid passing around a copy of Operation: Mindcrime to fellow students make copies of on cassettes like it was some underground rebellious thing. I admit it was one of my first exposures to heavy metal, but even then, with my burning desire to listen to secular music, i thought it was dumb. Years later I had the same feelings when drummer-nerd friends tried to get me into Dream Theater.

Could only make it through two minutes of that song, Grandma. And it was probably their big hit.
I think their fans are mostly musos. Rush, Queen, etc. Double neck guitar users.
I liked them when I was a drummer... saw them perform Operation: Mindcrime in its entirety, very good show if a bit long. (Especially after Suicidal Tendencies opened) And yeah, I was into Rush and Primus and all those sorta musician-loved bands.... even if I was never a real musician.
That song was definitely not a hit, though. This was their biggest song by far:
But I loved this song from O:M, even if it was totally theatrical.
