The phrase inspired John to write the song, or John thought it up?

"I listened to a lot of soul music when I was in school and l've always been interested in that sort of music. I'd been wanting to do a track like 'Another One Bites The Dust' for a while, but originally all I had was the line and the bass riff."

That would have been enormously entertaining. How would old Freddie have played that one off?

Oh, god, CHAPS! The big stiff kind that stick out...and, knowing Freddie, no doubt they'd have been worn sans pants.

So the phrase inspired John to write the song..
Because I've played some games, that wrote: "another one bit the dust", and/or "another one bites the dust" ->dunno it's an English phrase or John's phrase? :D

Something like "if you can't beat them, join them" is an original English phrase.

Another One Bites The Dust sounds very American to me.
