Lyric video

The lyric video is on both David Guetta's YouTube and VEVO account. It is a total of 2 minutes and 50 seconds long. It was released on April 10, 2014.

It starts out with a girl fighting zombies while the zombies dance as a reference to Michael Jackson's "Thriller". Suddenly, she falls in love with one of the zombies who goes up to her, and the two run away from the military, who are chasing them.

Critical reception

Mike Wass of Idolator wrote: "The grittier electro-house sound of 'Bad' is perhaps an indication that the hitmaker is moving away from the commercial dance sound of his last LP. Former hardstyle duo Showtek ensure that the beats come thicker and faster than ever, while Australian dance diva Vassy provides the instantly catchy hook — albeit in a heavily autotuned voice." [4]
