They Don’t Care About Us is a pop rock song which is the fifth single from American singer Michael Jackson‘s 1995 ninth studio album HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I.
The artist wrote and produced the song.
The song is infamous as one of the most controversial works ever put out by Jackson, thus making him a target of the media. In the US, he even had to issue multiple apologies and re-record the song with altered lyrics to enable radio stations play the record.
Nonetheless, the song achieved commercial success, peaking highest in the US at Number 4 on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales.
It was also a top ten hit in all European countries and Number 1 in Germany, where it was certified 3x gold.
