In the most recent episode of The Greatest series, Queen revisited the 1982 performance of their 1980 track, “Dragon Attack.”
The performance saw the legendary band delivering an iconic rendition of the song during a June 5 show at the Milton Keynes Bowl in Buckinghamshire, UK.
“Dragon Attack” was initially released as the B-side of the “Another One Bites The Dust” single and a highlight of The Game album. The track was inspired by the long nights Queen spent at Munich’s downtown discotheque Sugar Shack while recording at Musicland Studios.
In the lyrics, the club was referenced in the line: “Take me to the room where the black’s all white and the white’s all black/Take me back to the Shack.”
Brian May said about the recording of the song:
“It was done very late one night, or early one morning, probably very drunk.”
In more recent news, according to a report from Music Business Worldwide, Queen is said to be in the initial phases of selling their extensive collection of songs. If the agreement is finalized, it would be the largest sale of a catalog by a single artist ever recorded.
