We’re continuing our new series of Insect Music blog entries.

Who can follow the Beatles and Adam Ant? How about a pop legend? Michael Jackson. While we can’t stretch “Beat It,” “Thriller,” “Dirty Diana,” “Off The Wall,” or even “Bad” to have anything to do with insects, Michael’s first hit single “Ben” is actually about a rat, (no joke, and it’s perhaps the most beautiful song ever sung to and about a rat) but we’re not ready to start blogging about rodent music yet….

So here’s a refreshed version of a Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” performed by Alien Ant Farm. Enjoy!
