Michael Jackson's 'Bad' released 30 years ago Yesterday actually marked the 30 year anniversary since 'Bad' was released. It was of course a mammoth when it first dropped and sold millions around the world, also becoming the first album to score 5 #1 singles. It has sold an estimate of over 35M copies WW making it one of the best selling albums of all time. I've always regarded this album as very typical and prime MJ. The videos, the look and all of what's associated with it, it's an album that represents when MJ ruled the world, it was also his first album for which he would accompany with a solo concert tour, The Bad Tour which at the time was the most successful concert tour by a solo artist and the tour to play to the most fans (4.5M) around the world. Earning 2 Guinness World Records. What are your opinions on MJ's 'Bad' era?
