News > Weird Al Yankovic releases a Queen-influenced song

Added on 31-Aug-2009

Weird Al Yankovic has recently released a song called "Ringtone" on his new album, Internet Leaks, which references many Queen songs. Most heavily sampled is "Don't Stop Me Now", however, even some Queen songs which weren't singles are used, such as "You and I." The cover art for Ringtone also draws from A Night at the Opera's album cover. SuperNews! has created a video for Ringtone on YouTube. Brian May commented on Ringtone on his site. He appreciated the musical nod and noted the fine guitar-work.
