Good cover. Different than Pierce the Veil's which is also great, but still amazing.

Nice, pretty good cover.
But why do bands who choose to cover MJ almost always choose this song? The solo in it?

I think as far as Beat It covers go

Pierce The Veil > This > Fall Out Boy

Huge props for the Arrested Development avatar and GIF here, but I think that FOB's cover is better than this. This isn't bad, but the chorus seems really lackluster. The solo is pretty sweet though. And I haven't heard pierce the veil's, but I'm just going to assume it's not as good for now-I'll check it out when I have time.

EDIT: I listened to PTV's cover and I stick with my original assesment. FOB > This > PTV

Bummer that FOB's inferior version eclipsed this one. Bad timing I guess.
