A fantastic single from Michael Jackson's album Thriller
. Michael Jackson's dancing, in the music video, breks up a knife fight. Score!
Beat It features a guitar solo by Eddie Van Halen.
An excellent melodic death metal
band hailing from Götenburg, Sweden. Along with At the Gates
and In Flames
, helped define what would become called "The Götenburg Sound," which was then copied by many crappy American bands.
Dark Tranquility's noteworthy albums:
The Mind's I
The most important instrument in rock music. Along with the drums, forms the rhthym secion of the band, making a backbone for the song. Played with the fingers, instead of with a pick, as with an electric guitar. However, in faster-paced music, in order to keep up with the rest of the band, the bassist may use a pick, but playing with the fingers is much more fun and cooler-looking.
Famous bassists include Cliff Burton, Geddy Lee, and John Entwistle.
