>old old old fag here.

inb4 you fine folks will never ever know the impact this had not only on music, but society as a whole.

Young people, old people, middle aged people - there was nobody in 1982 who wasn't groovin' to this album. And unlike Bieber, there was no dissension, no hate, and no rabid followers looking to jump Michael's bones. This man was simply a presence, the likes of which hasn't been seen since.

I kid you not, this music would play outside of restaurants on external speakers (they had this kind of stuff back then in major urban areas) and the people on the sidewalk would break into a dance... in the first world.

You poor kids will never know the phenomenon of Michael the way those did who grew up to watch him rise from an enslaved child musician to a superstar the likes of which has not been seen since.

Not Bieber, not Beyonce, not Britney, not Metallica, not AC-DC, not Spice Girls... nothing has come before or since that simply made people stop, come together in peace and take notice to music since.

>1982
>this is what was "popular"

no fucking wonder dad-rock and other 60-70s album rock is so fucking cooked into 20th century musical history,
for a whole decade decent people had to resort to the music of 60s and 70s, even though the music was already 10+ years old, because the "popular" music was such garbage, all thanks to this album and all the copycats that came with it

nobody gave a shit or even remembered the "Jackson 5" or Michael Jackson until this album came out. Michael was off the radar.

Thriller is pretty good
Off the Wall is pretty good

Michael Jackson was really good as an artist because of his energy, his music was pretty good.

I distinctly remember everybody in my junior high school class watching the world premiere of 'Thriller' on MTV.

I was a fan of Funkadelic/Parliament, and Rick James when that album came out so didn't appreciate it nearly as much.......although I was REALLY into disco due to 'Saturday Night Fever'.

LOL, right, even though 'Heartbreak Hotel' & 'Can You Feel It' were hits off their Triumph album in 1980-81.

>>61557138
that live album was fucking huge

i think you're arguing with people who's parents were listening to whitesnake and stuff
>>
How can anyone on /mu/ dislike Michael Jackson what the fug is wrong with you all
>>
>>61557204
bc everyone is being a contrarian who thinks liking albums made 20 years before they were born is soooo special as long as they werent too popular
>>
>>61557165
>i think you're arguing with people who's parents were listening to whitesnake and stuff

Probably. That whole 'Disco is Dead' thing in '79 pretty much screwed over artists who were making dance music geared to minorities and females.
