Beat It è la quinta traccia del leggendario Thriller, album del 1982 di Michael Jackson. È stato lanciato come terzo singolo e l’anno successivo vinse 2 Grammy Awards per “Incisione dell’anno” e “Miglior performance rock di voce maschile”. Anche la rivista Rolling Stone ha classificato Beat It tra le migliori 500 canzoni di tutti i tempi, al 337esimo posto.
Nel 2008, Michael Jackson ne ha inciso una nuova versione assieme a Fergie in occasione di Thriller 25, disco di commemorazione del 25esimo anniversario.
L’assolo di chitarra di Beat It è stato classificato tra i migliori di tutti i tempi: non a caso Michael Jackson si è avvalso della collaborazione di Eddie Van Halen alla chitarra.
