VH1 Discusses Queen's Under Pressure Sampled In Vanilla Ice's Ice, Ice, Baby In 100 Greatest 1 Hit WondersLast night, Sunday 10/17/2005, VH1 presented their show, ''The 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders''. Song #7, was Vanilla Ice's, ''Ice, Ice, Baby''. The narrator of the clip on Vanilla Ice and his one hit wonder, discussed that Ice, had sampled and lifted the infamous bassline riff from Queen's and David Bowie's duet song, ''Under Pressure''.



While the narrator discussed this, they showed a photo of Freddie Mercury.



Then they interviewed Vanilla Ice about his ''borrowing'' the sample without Queen's and David Bowie's consent, to which he replied and disputed that HIS riff is totally different than the ''Under Pressure'' riff, and he demonstrated by singing his riff, then singing the ''Under Pressure'' riff, (which STILL sounded exactly the same)!!!!
