Michael Jackson’s “Bad” Gets Remixed By Afrojack For ‘Bad 25’

Michael Jackson‘s Bad turns 25 this year in style, as the 1987 smash success is getting the anniversary treatment with a ginormous re-issue package that includes the original album, a DVD of his 1988 Wembley Stadium concert, and more goodies than you could ever ask for.

To help promote the September 17 release of Bad 25 (though how much promotion does a new musical offering from the King Of Pop really need to guarantee the public snatching it up in spades?), a handful of today’s most in-demand DJs were given the opportunity to remix many of MJ’s biggest hits. Today comes Afrojack‘s take on the title track of the 25-year-old album, adding a ravey intro before the iconic guitar hook and pretty much tweaking the edgy pop tune into an EDM dream. Get down with your bad self below, and be on the lookout for more remixes from Diplo, Skrillex and A-Trak.
