12 of 15: The band Queen has had a large influence on Katy Perry's musical career. She told Elle, 'I had my big, intense, meaningful musical moment with Queen, not with 'Don't Stop Me Now,' but with the song 'Killer Queen.' I think that everybody has this one moment in their lives that they can remember - for some people, it's, like, Smashing Pumpkins or Radiohead or Garbage or No Doubt. I just appreciate all the obvious hard work that Freddie Mercury did. Because there was no way to cut corners back then'. (Photo courtesy of katyperryblog.tumblr.com)
