Jesu/Sun Kil Moon Tell Us How They Really Feel About Michael Jackson on ‘He’s Bad’

Jesu’s Justin Broadrick and Sun Kil Moon’s Mark Kozelek have absolutely no love lost for Michael Jackson. Their new song, “He’s Bad,” is nowhere close to a cover of the King of Pop’s “Bad”: It’s an ice-cold denouncement that references a recent RadarOnline story about disturbing materials reportedly discovered at Neverland Ranch.

“Is the latest on him true? Well, I don’t f**king know / But if I had a son, would I let him get into a car with Michael Jackson? / F**k no,” sings Kozelek. “He made creepy videos the popular kids liked back in the ’80s / And once over a balcony, he dangled a baby.”

“He’s Bad” appears to be the first taste of a forthcoming second album from Jesu/Sun Kil Moon, 30 Seconds to the Decline of Planet Earth (out June 1, 2017 from Caldo Verde Records). Their first collaboration, Jesu/Sun Kil Moon, came out in January. Listen to “He’s Bad” here via Sun Kil Moon’s website (and revisit “God Bless Ohio,” a touching new Sun Kil Moon song from this past Wednesday).
