British rock band Queen are not just legendary music icons, but their music is a big part pf pop culture. From We Will Rock You to We Are the Champions to Bohemian Rhapsody, their music is timeless, encompassing generations.

Any mention of their contributions to pop culture wouldn’t be complete without the world-wide hit, Another One Bites the Dust. Released in October of 1980, it spent three weeks at number one. The song spent 15 weeks in the Billboard top 10 (the longest running top ten song of 1980), including 13 weeks in the top five, and 31 weeks total on the chart (more than any other song in 1980).

Another One Bites the Dust won an American Music Award for Favorite Rock Single and also garnered a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.

 

FUN FACTS:

  • Another One Bites the Dust is credited as Queen’s best-selling single, with sales of over 7 million copies.
  • John Deacon’s bass line was inspired by Good Times by the disco group Chic.
  • The song was used in a preliminary cut of Rocky III, before being replaced by Survivor’s Eye of the Tiger.
  • The music video for Another One Bites the Dust was filmed at Reunion Arena in Dallas, Texas.

  1. I’ve been having a Queen kind of weekend yesterday and today love this song. It’s making my walk that much more peppy. Instead of biting the dust I’m getting more miles 😎🎶
