October 4 - Another One Bites the Dust hits #1

On this day 32 years ago, Queen's iconic single "Another One Bites the Dust" was the number one song in the United States. The song was Queen's most successful single, as it accumulated over $7 million in sales and went number one in five different countries.

The song has been redone and used in several different capacities since 1980. In 1998, the song was covered by R&B singer Wycleaf Jean, which became a top 5 single in the UK. In 2010, the song received another great honour, as the cast of "Glee" did a remake of the iconic single in the episode "Funk".

Billboard ranked "Another One Bites the Dust" as the 34th greatest song of all time.
