From Wikipedia: "Bad is the seventh studio album by American singer and songwriter Michael Jackson. It was released on August 31, 1987 in the United States by Epic Records and internationally by CBS Records, nearly five years after Jackson's previous album, Thriller. Bad was written and recorded over more than three and a half years, and was the final collaboration between Jackson and producer Quincy Jones. The lyrical themes include media bias, paranoia, racial profiling, romance, self-improvement and world peace.---Jackson co-produced the album and composed all but three tracks. Nine songs were released as singles, including one promotional single. Seven charted in the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100, including a record-breaking five number ones: "I Just Can't Stop Loving You", "Bad", "The Way You Make Me Feel", "Man in the Mirror" and "Dirty Diana".---Bad reached number one in thirteen countries and reached the top 20 in other territories. It sold at least 2 million copies in its first week in the US, and 500,000 copies in its first five days in the UK. Bad remained in the top five on the Billboard 200 album chart for 38 weeks, setting a record for the longest run in the top five by an album from a male solo artist.[4] The Bad tour grossed $125 million.---Bad was nominated for six Grammy Awards, winning Best Engineered Recording Non Classical and Best Music Video (for "Leave Me Alone"). It is one of the best-selling albums of all time, with an estimated 35 million copies sold worldwide. In 2017, the album was certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales of over ten million copies in the United States. It has been named one of the greatest albums of all time by several publications, including Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, where it appears at number 202.
