At last! A man on the internet has answered the question, "What would it sound like if AC/DC had written Another One Bites The Dust by Queen?"

One of the real beauties of the internet is that important philosophical debates like "What would it sound like if Welcome To The Jungle was written by The Smiths?", or "What would happen if you played every Motörhead song at once?" – both of which would previously have been the preserve of drunken pub conversations but never answered in real life – can now be settled. Because somewhere, someone will have the skills, the inclination and the software to figure it out.

The latest query to vex humanity until this very moment is "What would Queen's Crazy Little Thing Called Love sound like if it had been written by AC/DC?" And it's been answered by Otu, a self-described music producer and musician from Finland.

"This is what Queen's Another One Bites The Dust would sound like if AC/DC wrote it with a production similar to Back In Black and Highway To Hell," explains Otu. "Enjoy the mashup!"

Boy, have we. Otu plays all the parts on AC/DC's version of Another One Bites The Dust, assembling a base made of tasty Angus, Malcolm, Cliff and Phil action before icing the cake with some prime Brian Johnson topping. He even slips in a few slices of surprisingly accurate Geordie vernacular. And it all goes a bit Let There Be Rock at the end, for which we're thankful.  

Of course, this isn't the first we've heard from young Otu – operating under the name Moonic Productions – who has previously brought unfettered joy to humanity by covering Metallica's 72 Seasons in the style of Slayer, reimagining Britney Spears' Toxic in the style of System Of A Down, and reconfiguring the theme from The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air so that it sounds like it was originally recorded by Limp Bizkit.

Now, if he could just write a new Guns N' Roses song in the style of old Guns N' Roses, we'd be really grateful.
