I know that Vanilla Ice sampled "Under pressure" from Queen like 15 years ago...were their any other samples that were done by any other rap artist??? Or for that reason, any other artist that have re-made any of Queen's song!?

Ice should burn for that one.
You know he had the nerve to turn to MTV or VH1 or whatever and say that its a different beat, that he thought of himself. Then again he has been accused of plagerism before so i guess its not tooo uncalled for

Of course.

Oddly, I was just going through some of my audio tapes, and stumbled upon an interview with Brian where he mentions this (as it was happening at the time) and says that the record company (I'm guessing Hollywood) went after him and got it straightened out.

Someone had a segment from an interview with Brian about this as their sig a while ago. Can't remember who. Anyway, the interviewer asked if Ice had asked for permission and Brian said something like "He should have, but he didn't, and so Hollywood records are sueing his ass."


This can't end well.

I'm sorry, I was cut off. As I was saying, the AOBTD remix is the WORST QUEEN RELATED TRACK EVER (with the possible exception of WWRY with 5ive and TSMGO with EJ).

It's a long story, and yours is a question I am asked a lot. On a school trip once, I carried a huge sack of munch with me and shared it with everyone in my dorm (there were 8 of us and over 4 nights, the other 7 couldn't eat it all. So I had to help them out). Hence the name Munchsack.

Brian said in 1991 (May I think) in an interview promoting innuendo on rockline radio...
