They told him don't you ever come around here

So beat it, just beat it

I feel like I've heard this cover on the radio when it came out and I was like 5

It's funny because it's one of their better songs (even though they didn't write it).
Report as inappropriate
But honestly, it doesn't matter who's better or not FOB probably just wanted to do a cover bc they like the song they weren't trying to sound better than Michael Jackson
Report as inappropriate
Even though this cover is great, and I even thought it was better than the original. But, originals are always better.
Report as inappropriate
Most covers aren't always that great but this is awesome!! Pete, Joe, and Patrick's guitar parts in this song is totally badass! Andy's drumming skills come in very well!

I'm agreeing with everyone who's saying the original is better. True, Patrick is really talented but MJ's version will and has always been better

Don't read this. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Don't stop this is freaky! But if you read this and ignore it you will get bad luck. Put this on 15 songs in 143 minutes. When your done press the space bar and your crushes name will appear in big letters on the screen. This is so creepy because it actually works.

I used to listen to the Van Halen version of this song as kid and I think I finally get the true meaning of this song '-'

It may not be Eddie Van Halen, but this still a good song.
