There's no denying Queen are easily one of the biggest-selling bands around.

But despite their illustrious career in music, the 'We Will Rock You' hitmakers have revealed they still have one life goal they would love to achieve.

Speaking in a new interview, Brian May admitted that the rockers would love to record a James Bond theme song.

The discussion came about after Bohemian Rhapsody actor Rami Malek pondered why the iconic rock stars hadn't recorded a theme song in the recent documentary The Sound of 007, before calling for May and his bandmates Roger Taylor and Adam Lambert to do the next one.

"You know what? A few people have said that yeah. It’s a shame," the legendary guitarist said when talking about why Queen didn't do a Bond theme while Freddie Mercury was alive.

"It’s odd, actually, because I know Michael Wilson very well - him and Broccoli are the original producers of James Bond.

"And I’ve known him for years. But I’ve never really had the temerity to go up and say, 'Why don’t you give us a Bond theme?' It’s just never happened. It could happen, it could happen, it could happen."

Referencing the recently-released Queen song featuring Mercury's vocals, he added: "Good title. 'Face It Alone' is a good Bond title. I will talk to Michael Wilson."

We think the rockers are definitely in with a chance!
