Michael Jackson – The Artist
Michael Jackson (1958 – 2009) was an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. Dubbed the “King of Pop”, he was one of the most popular entertainers in the world and one of the best-selling music artists of all time. Jackson’s contributions to music, dance, and fashion along with his publicised personal life made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades.
Beat It – The Song
Beat It is a song by American singer Michael Jackson from his sixth studio album, Thriller (1982). It was written by Jackson and produced by Jackson and Quincy Jones. Jones encouraged Jackson to include a rock song on the album, though Jackson had never previously shown an interest in the genre. Jackson later said: “I wanted to write a song, the type of song that I would buy if I were to buy a rock song… That is how I approached it and I wanted the children to really enjoy it—the school children as well as the college students.” It includes a guitar solo by Eddie Van Halen. The “Beat It” music video, which features Jackson bringing two gangsters together through the power of music and dance, helped establish Jackson as an international pop icon. The single, along with its music video, helped make Thriller the best-selling album of all time. “Beat It” has been cited as one of the most successful, recognised, awarded and celebrated songs in the history of popular music; both the song and video had a large impact on pop culture.
The knuckleduster – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a knuckleduster. Brass knuckles (synonyms include: knuckles, knucks, brass knucks, knucklebusters, knuckledusters, knuckle daggers, an English punch, a paperweight, or a classic) are “fist-load weapons” used in hand-to-hand combat. Brass knuckles are pieces of metal shaped to fit around the knuckles. Despite their name, they are often made from other metals, plastics or carbon fibers. Designed to preserve and concentrate a punch’s force by directing it toward a harder and smaller contact area, they result in increased tissue disruption, including an increased likelihood of fracturing the intended target bones on impact. The extended and rounded palm grip also spreads across the attacker’s palm the counter-force that would otherwise be absorbed primarily by the attacker’s fingers, reducing the likelihood of damage to the attacker’s fingers.
