Written by bass guitarist John Deaconthe song featured on the group's eighth studio album The Game The song was a worldwide hitcharting number one on the US Billboard Hot for three weeks, from 4 October to 18 October their second number-one single in the country. The song spent 15 weeks in the Billboard top 10 the longest running top ten song ofincluding 13 weeks in the top five, and 31 weeks total on the chart more than any other song in John Deacon 's bass line was inspired by " Good Times " by the disco group Chic.
Recording sessions — produced by Reinhold Mack at Musicland Studios in Munich West Germany — consisted of Deacon playing almost all instruments: bass guitarpianoelectric guitarand handclaps. Roger Taylor added a drum loop and Brian May contributed noises with his guitar and an Eventide Harmonizer. There are no synthesisers in the song: all effects are created by piano, electric guitars and drums, with subsequent tape playback performed in reverse at various speeds.
Finally, sound effects were run through the harmonizer for further processing. The effect of the harmonizer can be heard clearly in the "swirling" nature of the sound immediately before the first lyric. In early live performances, Taylor sang lead on the chorus, as opposed to the studio version sung entirely by Mercury. As the song became more well-known, the band could rely on audiences to sing the chorus by themselves. In the early 80s, "Another One Bites the Dust" was one of many popular rock songs that Christian evangelists alleged contained subliminal messages through a technique called backmasking.
It was claimed that the chorus, when played in reverse, can be heard as "Decide to smoke marijuana ",  "It's fun to smoke marijuana",  or "Start to smoke marijuana". Dave Ogilvie edited the Phase 5 remix for inclusion on the April compilation BASIC Queen Bootlegs removing profanity from the rap verse and problematic Right Or Wrong - George Strait - Right Or Wrong due to copyright clearance.
