Rockers Queen have been crowned top of the patriotic pops in a survey of 100,000 music fans.

The band's anthem We Are The Champions was named number one by fans who were asked what song made them proud to be British.

The track, which got to number two in 1977, picked up 13,000 votes in the survey carried out among users of the Lucky Voice karaoke website.

It was followed by the Oasis hit Wonderwall which was nominated by 11,000 karaoke singers and then Let It Be by The Beatles which got 10,000 votes.

Elton John's Candle In The Wind and London Calling by The Clash rounded off the top five.

Lucky Voice boss Nick Thistleton said: "It seems the great British public are quite a sentimental crowd, with so many people opting for solid ballads over rock anthems. But you can't beat the feel good factor of We Are The Champions - especially when sung with your mates at high volume.

"We need all the help we can get this summer to give the UK a massive boost and we urge everyone out there to get into the patriotic spirit, show their support and help by singing our way to success."
