"BAD BOYS" BY WHAM! (1983)

Bad Boys was written by George Michael when he was just 19 years old, and tells the tale of a rebellious teenage lad's struggle against his parents. Apparantly, he hates the track and once stated that it was "like an albatross round my neck".

The song was released in May 1983 and made number 2 In The UK singles chart and #60 in the U.S. It was the third single to be lifted from Wham's debut album Fantastic. Other singles from the album were; Young Guns (Go For It), Wham Rap! (Enjoy What You Do) and Club Tropicana.

During the 1980's, Wham! acheived success with nine Top 10 singles and a #15 with the Club Fantastic Megamix in the UK - four singles reached the top of the charts - and five Top 10 singles in the U.S.
