“Another one bites the dust” was going to be on Rocky before “Eye of the tiger”

The iconic song “Eye Of The Tiger” was created to be the theme for Rocky III because Queen wouldn’t give the film’s star, Sylvester Stallone, the rights to use their hit “Another One Bites The Dust”.

In fact, guitarist Jim Peterik asked Stallone why they hadn’t used Queen’s song after seeing a video montage of the movie accompanied by it. After Stallone explained, he just thought:

“Thank you, Queen!”
