Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' was released 31 years ago.
2) It has been reported that Thriller's popularity led to the breaking down of racial barriers on some radio stations in United States that only played songs by white people prior to the release of the album. MJ's 'Beat It' was first played in one of New York's 'white station' because of the appearance of Eddie Van Helen. An uproar was created by listeners who did not want 'black' music on the music station.
4) The 'Thriller' zombie dance routine is probably one of the most performed in the world, with the largest number of participant in a routine recorded at 13, 597. The Guinness Book of World Records recognised the event organised by e Instituto de la Juventud del Gobierno del Distrito Federal at the Monumento a la Revolucion, Mexico City, Mexico on Aug 20, 2000 as the largest in the world.
