Another One Bites the Dust! Classic Queen track cut from new greatest hits compilation to cater to a younger audience

Queen’s smash single Fat Bottomed Girls has been cut from a new Greatest Hits compilation because it’s been dubbed too racy for a younger audience.

The song, released in 1978 by the British rock band, features lyrics including: “Are you gonna let it all hang out? Fat bottomed girls, you make the rockin’ world go round.”

As reported by The Telegraph, the new compilation has been released by Universal Music on the platform Yoto, which is aimed at children and a younger audience.
