Beat It is from Michael Jackson’s album Thriller, released in 1983 as Thriller’s third single. The music video features two rival gangs. Beat It was awarded a Grammy Award for best male rock vocal performance and two American Music Awards.

Fun fact! Eddie Van Halen, the legendary guitar player, recorded the guitar solo for Beat It. He first thought he was receiving a prank call when he was contacted by the producer, Quincy Jones. While recording the guitar solo, the engineers found that the monitor speaker in the control room had caught fire, so the engineers said “this must be really good!”

Another fun fact! Thriller is the best-selling album of all time and every song on the album was a number one hit.
There is also a “Weird Al” Yankovic parody of the song called “Eat It”. Beat It has also been covered by Pierce the Veil, Fall Out Boy, Pomplamoose, Justin Bieber, Fergie, John 5 and Eminem.

Lyrics:
They told him don’t you ever come around here
Don’t want to see your face, you better disappear
The fire’s in their eyes and their words are really clear
So beat it, just beat it

You better run, you better do what you can
Don’t want to see no blood, don’t be a macho man
You want to be tough, better do what you can
So beat it, but you want to be bad

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
Just beat it, beat it
Just beat it, beat it
Just beat it, beat it
Just beat it, beat it

They’re out to get you, better leave while you can
Don’t want to be a boy, you want to be a man
You want to stay alive, better do what you can
So beat it, just beat it

You have to show them that you’re really not scared
You’re playin’ with your life, this ain’t no truth or dare
They’ll kick you, then they beat you,
Then they’ll tell you it’s fair
So beat it, but you want to be bad

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
Just beat it, beat it
Beat it, beat it, beat it

No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or who’s right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
Just beat it, beat it
Beat it, beat it, beat it
