"Price of Fame" is a song by American recording artist Michael Jackson. It was originally planned to be the theme for a Pepsi commercial but was replaced by an edited version of "Bad". It was released on the Bad 25 album. Later, the Pepsi version was released online on 2015.
Background and recording
According to Matt Forger, the song was mixed by Bill Bottrell.
Joe Vogel, who has written two books about Jackson, described the opening as reminiscent of The Police song "Spirits in the Material World". He also compared the verses to "Billie Jean" and the chords to "Who Is It". He also praised the vocal performance as "powerful" and said "listen to the way he bits into the lyric: 'My father never lies!'", and contrasted the song to the "easy bliss" of "Free", the previous track.
