Mr. Bad Guy

Album: Mr. Bad Guy (1985)

Songfacts®:

  • "Mr. Bad Guy" is the title track of Freddie Mercury's 1985 solo album. Running to 4 minutes 9 seconds, it was written by Mercury alone as were all the songs therein. The second track on side two, it is autobiographical, because as he said in a documentary screened by BBC Television 21 years after his death, at that time he was everybody's bad guy. This was probably especially true for Columbia Records because the album bombed. >>
