Well, I was just wondering, when Vanilla Ice sampled Queens beat from Under Pressure, did he get sued? I saw him on the TV yesterday, and he was saying stuff like, ' mine goes duh dun dun dun buh bun dun, and theirs go duh duh dun dun bun bun. It's not the same.' Sorry, I cant type the beat into words.

As I said in the other copy of this thread in the 'Personal' section, I have an interview with Brian where he talks about this (thanks Miss J!)... I'll see if I can't record it onto my computer and share it on my site sometime in the near future.

*Wow! My posts here and there are so osimilar that you'd almost thing I copied and pasted!

Indeed he was! Though he wouldn't be for much longer I'm afraid... :/

I've read that interview with Brian, and it says how he thought it wouldn't be that big of a deal, so he didn't pay any mind to it. And then, of course, it became a huge hit. But the band received royalties for his sampling, even though he claims he added an extra 'ting'.

I don't like Vanilla Ice or any of his songs. If he has more than just that song. I don't think anybody liked it, i think they just wanted something new, and got it. He was just a white MC hammer. and i also heard he sampled 'play that funky music' also, before ice ice baby. man, he needs to write his own material...

Well, that may be true, but don't forget to read the actual post before replying. This topic wasn't a comparison of the two songs but about whether or not Vanilla Ice was sued for ripping off the bassline.

I like Ice ice baby more then UP, as I heard Ice ice baby 1st, as I was around 15/16 when it came out and was very popular, I didnt hear UP till after the tribute concert, when I stole classic Queen from the local store and thought what the hell is Queen playing a Vanilla Ice tune, my uncle thought ice ice baby was UP playing at 1st, lol

Well in my case I also heard Ice Ice baby before Under pressure...but I never, never like ice ice baby. I've always thought the video and the song sucked, and that the singer looked awfully dumb. And when I heard Under Pressure and realized it was the "original" one, I just thought "God this song's great. Ice ice baby is a shame..."


yes it was plain to see, yes it was meant to be...

Yeah the record company sued, but Brian said he didn't think it was cool for bands to be sueing each other. Then he or Roger or both said they actually kind of liked Ice Ice Baby.
