Queen reaches No.1 on U.S Hot 100 in 1980 for the first time

On October 4th, 1980 Queen finally gets their first No.1 single in the U.S Hot 100 with the funky/disco rock of “Another One Bites The Dust”. All though enjoying a wave of popularity in the U.S during the late 1970’s, it wasn’t until “Another One Bites The Dust” written by John Deacon and from their 8th album “The Game” that Queen topped the charts, despite having had No.1’s around the world at that point in their carer.  On the US Billboard Hot 100 it remained for three weeks, from 4 October to 18 October (their second number-one single in the country). The song spent fifteen weeks in the Billboard top ten (the longest running top ten song of 1980) and 31 weeks total on the chart (more than any other song in 1980). It reached number two on the Hot Soul Singles chart and the Disco Top 100 chart, and number seven on the UK Singles Chart. The song is credited as Queen’s best-selling single, with sales of over 7 million copies.
