JP-3 OMG, this cover fires on so many cylinders! LeBrock slays the vocals, Miklos Czifra brings the shred, and Quixotic wraps it up with grungy cyberpunk synths that give a whole new edge to this classic track.

Fahrenheight Nova This cover absolutely slays! LeBrock's got some of the best vocals in all of synthwave, and when you combine that with some faithful axework to the original Beat It, you've got a real winner here.

about

1982 on 30th of November Michael Jackson released his legendary "Thriller" album. "Beat it" was the first foray into rock that helped dismantle barriers of genre and race in popular music.

Now 37 years later Quixotic teamed up with LeBrock from the other side of Europe for this epic cover. Quixotic crossed the pop hit with synthwave and metal, Shaun Phillips (LeBrock) vocals kept the essence what made original so catchy and Quixotic's guitar hero Miklos Czifra did justice to Eddie Van Halen's solo.

lyrics

Beat it, beat it

Beat it, beat it

They told him don't you ever come around here
Don't want to see your face, you better disappear
The fire's in their eyes and their words are really clear
So beat it, just beat it

You better run, you better do what you can
Don't want to see no blood, don't be a macho man
You want to be tough, better do what you can
So beat it, but you want to be bad

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
Just beat it, beat it
Just beat it, beat it
Just beat it, beat it
Just beat it, beat it

They're out to get you, better leave while you can
Don't want to be a boy, you want to be a man
You want to stay alive, better do what you can
So beat it, just beat it

You have to show them that you're really not scared
You're playin' with your life, this ain't no truth or dare
They'll kick you, then they beat you,
Then they'll tell you it's fair
So beat it, but you want to be bad

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
Just beat it

Beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it

Beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
Just beat it

Beat it, beat it
