BONUS VIDEO: Michael Jackson's BAD in this 16 minute version. The video was directed by Martin Scorsese.

"In his 1988 autobiography Moonwalk, Jackson wrote: “Bad" is a song about the street. It's about this kid from a bad neighborhood who gets to go away to a private school. He comes back to the old neighborhood when he's on a break from school and the kids from the neighborhood start giving him trouble. He sings, "I'm bad, you're bad, who's bad, who's the best?" He's saying when you're strong and good, then you're bad." [via Wiki]
