'They Don't Care About Us' may be one of the most controversial tracks written by the King of Pop, but it's a darn catchy one.
Although Michael Jackson's hit single 'They Don't Care About Us' was released over twenty years ago, it is still considered to be one of his most controversial songs.
Despite the difference in opinion over the lyrics, the track is politically powerful while remaining incredibly catchy – a fine line to master.
