Did you actually read what they said? They name the song Under Pressue, but it sounds like they're talking about Anotehr one bites the dust in the description. That loses the credibility.

no, they're definately talking about Under Pressure... I think it's kinda stupid that they called Queen the least cool band of all time though. If they are so "uncool" why are they one of the most popular classic rock bands among today's youth?

"01. Queen - Under Pressure
Who would have thought that such an extravagant, ostentatious band could team up with such a ludicrously flamboyant solo artist and create something so possessed of understated cool, so minimal and precise? No one embodied 70s excess like Queen did, except perhaps David Bowie. They came together, once, for one song, and that bassline was the progeny. The song itself, of course, rose into a showy stomp, but oh my. John Deacon channelled Chic into that bassline. So magic that even Vanilla Ice couldn’t fuck it up. So magic that it made Vanilla Ice sound good. ANYONE could sound good with that riff underneath them. The least cool band ever, the least cool rapper ever, and the coolest bassline.
[Nick Southall] "

When the hell did "Under Pressure's" bassline make Vanilla Ice sound good? How dare you attempt to correct the greatness that is Kyle?

Um.. it was Under Pressure that Vanilla Ice took the bassline from. That's what they're talking about.

you could tell whoever wrote this article didn't know much about queen, that's the feeling I got reading some of his comments.

The not cool part is about Vanilla Ice.

Nah, the best bassline ever is "The Damned Don't Cry" by Reggie Workman, from John Coltrane's album "The Complete Africa/Brass Sessions" (known as "Africa/Brass" and "Africa/Brass 2" on vinyl).


Stupid jazz. :-P

lol, I know. I was totally tripping last night and the strangest part was that no drugs were involved. I think the chic thing through me off but thats no excuse for thinking Vanilla Ice ised the AnoBtD bass on his song. I guess Under Pressure can be chicc like too though.
