Michael Jackson's "BAD" turns 25 (His Most Under-rated Classic)..........

edited September 2012 in R&B & Alternatives
There was "Off The Wall" which was the album that took Michael from the Jackson 5 to solo star. Then there was "Thriller" that made Michael the biggest star in the world. Sadly in the shadow of both albums was his 1987 release "Bad". How do you follow up the Biggest selling album of all time? Well "Bad" did just that being the 1st album in History to have 5 #1 hits on it. "Bad" had more hit songs than both "Thriller' and "Off the Wall". Today is the 25th Anniversary of that album and I think people need to understand how Classic it is. There isn't a single weak song on the album:

Bad - 5 MICS
The way you make me feel - 5 MICS
Speed Demon - 4 MICS
Liberian Girl - 5 MICS
Just Good Friends - 5 MICS
Another Part of Me - 5 MICS
Man In the Mirror - 5 MICS
I just can't stop loving You - 5 MICS
Dirty Diana - 5 MICS
Smooth Criminal -5 MICS
Leave Me Alone - 5 MICS

The only song you can throw rocks at is "Speed Demon" and even that went hard. Overall the album is a Timeless Classic. It's the 5th Highest selling album of all time Worldwide with over 40 Million Copies sold. Michael followed up "Off the Wall" and "Thriller" with another Classic. Salute to Bad:

    I agree speed demon is the letdown on this classic, I was never a fan of I just can't stop loving you either, this is a classic 5/5. not his most underrated though, dangerous is my favourite mj release, my fav album of all time

    Dangerous > Thriller > Bad > Off the wall

    I agree. I like Afrojack as a DJ but I don't know about these weak remixes. They did the same thing on the "Thriller 25" when Black Eye Peas dropped those garbage remixes. The only remix that honored Michael was KanYe's "Billie Jean" remix.

    this is the album when rumors just started to get out of control. Mike was musically flawless up until this point. BAD was huge album and tour but "Off The Wall' & "Thriller" are superior in my opinion. This album had nothing but hits on it and it ended Jackson streak of classic albums. Dangerous & HIStory are gems in the world of music also tho.

    His invincible album sucked though. I mean, I did really like a few cuts, but it just seemed of poor quality, especially for him.

    Classic niggas can't tell me shit about Mike! Leave me alone is my favorite song!
    Bitch shut your mouth before I fuck it

    I'm still a rap fan, microphone fiend
    An insider like Russell Crowe, behind the scenes
    You can be the hottest MC, literally leave the mic smoking
    No marketing and promotion
    No 106 & Park, no TRL
    Don't kill the messenger homey but don't expect to sell
    Viacom own MTV, VH1
    BET, five labels until BMG
    Merged with Sony, EMI, Universal and WEA
    Only four labels in the music industry bruh
    All radio controlled by two companies
    Just two rap magazines, read between the lines
    Hip-hop used to be the expression of struggle with rhymes
    Corporate monopolized, only certain shit shines
    Only way to get radio and video and blow
    They control what you say, and the images you show
    CNN owned by AOL, own Time Warner
    Trickle down effect of the New World Order
    And you wonder why "Van Gogh" was killed
    Same reason Dead Prez lost they deal, get real
    I spit for the cabbage, grind with a mission
    And put Capitol Records in missionary positions
    Used to love H.E.R. like Common, but then you get signed
    (Behind the Music) now I just fuck the music from behind

    Magazine writers misprint you, take words out of context
    And got the nerve to wonder why I'm vexed
    When I read the publication
    I was like "Damn, was we in the same conversation?"
    This for the rap conniseurs, magazine critics
    Backpackers, rap stars with bullshit gimmicks
    Fans, even the "Stans," the groupies and label executives
    With corporate cards trickin my budget on coochie
    Video chicks sucking dick between takes
    Hoping to get saved, and thanks for the ass shake
    Like Dave Chappelle in "Half Baked," need a backyotomy
    And some of these thugs is into sodomy
    Large print giveth, fine print taketh away
    Your favorite rapper ain't recoup label take it away
    Have a nigga tempted to take an AK, goin postal
    Rap made me loco, hustle bicoastal
    (Why?) Because the West monopolize
    Same ol' niggas tellin the same ol' lies
    L.A. radio, quick to suck out of town dick
    South support they own create international hits
    Out of regional records, East coast create the buzz
    Music capitol of the world, thought it wasn't when it was
    And somehow manage to screw us
    Call West coast gangster rap whack, then sold it back to us...

    Speed Demon be going off, my brother learned how to play the guitar listening to my Bad cd.
    Off The Wall, Thriller, BAD, Dangerous, HIStory, Blood On The Dance Floor and Invincible are classics that I still listen to every other week. Invincible was so slept on and hell even MICHAEL was a good album.

    Yo u got to get the deluxe Bad 25 package, Mike got songs that he did from the Bad session that I been playing all day.

    Don't Be Messin Round, I'm So Blue, Song Groove aka Abortion Papers, Free, Price of Fame and Al Capone and the two I heard already, Street Walker and Fly Away and also not on the deluxe, Carousel.
    Mike had hits that he didn't even release, that is crazy and it sounds better then half the shit out now.

    I can't front. I played every song you mentioned, and they were wack. Mike sounded great, but these beats were just awful. The tracks remind me of scene filler from a Beverly Hills Cop movie.
