Queen have been voted the top band the UK would most want to spend 15 minutes with.

The 'We Are The Champions' rockers topped a survey conducted by Virgin Media, who today (02.04.13) announced the launch of their new channel Vintage TV, after receiving a majority of votes from the British public.

Richard Wheeler, head of content acquisition at Virgin Media, said: ''Queen still proves the show must go on as the UK continues to enjoy some of the best songs from the last century on Vintage TV.''

Shortly behind the music legends - fronted by the late Freddie Mercury - comes David Bowie, who recently released his first album in a decade, 'The Next Day'.

The top five is completed by soul sensation Stevie Wonder, whose hits include 'Superstitious' and 'Isn't She Lovely', 'Little Lies' musicians Fleetwood Mac and British rockers Oasis.

Vintage TV will show a range of original music programmes and concert footage, as well as full-length interview features, 'rockumentaries' and music news bulletins.

1. Queen

2. David Bowie

3. Stevie Wonder

4. Fleetwood Mac

5. Oasis

6. Bryan Adams

7. ELO

8. Joy Division
