Just For Fun

We figured we'd wait until you're thoroughly sick of hearing about Michael Jackson's death before posting our own article. Inspired by Metalunderground.com reader Gorecunt's Facebook note, I've compiled a list of metal Michael Jackson covers from YouTube, some more serious than others. While Jacko really has nothing to do with metal, some of our readers may still have enjoyed his music. Please raise your hands to be banned (just kidding). As such, this is all purely for fun, regardless what you think of him. Eleven metal(ish) covers of Michael Jackson songs can be seen below (with a couple of bonuses as well), after the jump.
Raintime covers "Beat It"
Jameson covers "Beat It"
Northern Kings covers "They Don't Really Care About Us"
Alien Ant Farm covers "Smooth Criminal"
Raunchy covers "Somebody's Watching Me" (filling in only Rockwell's parts with Michael Jackson's chorus still in-tact)
Bobaflex Covers Michael Jackson
Redline Covers "Thriller" on Music As A Weapon Tour in New Zealand
My Endeavour covers "Dirty Diana"
Ten Masked Men covers "Beat It"
A Doom metal cover
A Black Metal Cover of "Beat It"

As previously reported, Periphery posted a more honest tribute by covering "Black or White."
