David Guetta

David Guetta & Showtek’s big-room anthem ‘Bad’ turns 5 years old

Taken from his 2014 album ‘Listen’, David Guetta‘s ‘Bad’ is still one of the most popular tracks in the Frenchman’s back-catalogue, amassing over 360 million Spotify streams. Released on this day exactly 5 years ago, it’s hard to believe that a full half-century has passed since the track dropped, but this one still sounds as fresh as ever!

A collaboration with Dutch brothers Showtek, ‘Bad’ flaunts the sibling’s typically explosive big-room style, and was topped with the vocals of Vassy. The track is still used by Guetta in his sets to this very day, with the ‘Titanium‘ maestro regularly spinning it during his Ibiza residency last summer.

You can take a quick walk down nostalgia lane below, by reliving this classic team-up from Guetta and Showtek, a timeless classic which left millions of ravers asking themselves why it feels so good, so good to be bad.
