Con

Michael Jackson is not the King of Pop, he died, therefore the next heir must take over the reign. In the past many kings have died and if the heir succeeded in the coronation they become the ruler. In this case Michael Jackson was a king for quite a while, you see, but when he died--though many people wept on the streets of Paris--nobody could deny that a new king had to take his place. You did not provide any definitions (or arguments for that matter) therefore I can present my case in any way I want.

There are many ways to refute how you said Thriller is the only reason Michael Jackson is still the King of Pop. For example if M. J. was still alive now, I admit that he would rule over Icona Pop [https://www.youtube.com...] but since he's not alive I'd say someone else had to have taken the rule over Pop. Some people would say Justin Timberlake others would say Basset Hounds or Justin Bieber, but I'm going with Brandon Howard because he the next heir in the Royal family [https://www.youtube.com...]. He is the alleged son of MJ, or people think, but also the most likely even though he's not the most famous. I mean, I trust DNA tests!

In this music video for 'Thriller' [https://www.youtube.com...] it shows how Michael Jackson is not a king, but a monster. (Da duh daaaa!)

Besides, the music video defines 'thriller' as what we now call a 'horror.' So if that song really was proof for the blatant statement that MJ is still king, than there would still be the same definitions for the terms used to categorize movies/films. But technically you saying the word thriller could mean anything.

So who's rule are you under, anyways? I've never heard of a town or any civilization named--or nicknamed--'Pop' so I don't know the options for kings. You never informed me why Michael Jackson is a king at all or how he became one.

Good talk. Good debate. And good day.

Ahh. This is a very great example of a Pro-but-Con debate. JasperFrancisShickadance I applaud you, I would have a tough time arguing with this one as a con.

I actually agree with Pro but why not play Devils Advocate once in a while? I knew that because it's 1 round and my opponent didn't give an argument I would win. Besides, if I were him I would've given better examples for songs that MJ did other than Thriller. Such as 'Got to be There' or 'Rock with You.'

I still think Thriller is a sound argument

Michael Jackson is the person that makes more money dead. He's the one that earns more money even dead (comparing with other dead people).
But that wasn't a debate, just "Thriller" doesn't justify anything, con wins

Just a tip for pro: That's not how you start a debate or give an argument. You should actually give some points.
