Mark Zuckerberg might have more money than the average man, but he has the same musical tastes as everyone else -- because TMZ has learned his wedding was bumping some serious Michael Jackson tracks all night long. 

A neighbor of the Facebook CEO tells TMZ ... they could hear the music coming from the wedding the entire time (as evidenced by our video where you can hear Billie Joe Armstrong singing from the street).

The neighbor tells TMZ there was plenty of upbeat music all night -- including Flo Rida, Bon Jovi and Janet Jackson. But the overwhelming favorite was the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. 

Status update: everyone loves MJ.

I wonder if the couple did an MJ wedding dance, just like these couples:

Zuckerberg looks as if he has Asperger's Syndrome, a high functioning form of Autism. They often are brilliant with art, music or numbers. Have worked with many with this complaint and he has the classic distant and dazed look in his eyes and would also explain his not so strong social skills. Having said that, good for him becoming so rich!

It was a wonderful wedding with wonderful music. Zuckerberg is a genius, and he chose the music of another genius, Michael Jackson, to celebrate his wedding. He knows great music. Intelligent people tend to gravitate to other intelligent people.

Of course. Zuckerberg looks like a confused 13 year old boy. Look at any picture of him and you can see his level of style and class.

They started playing Jackson's music late in the party for the same reason everyone does, to get people to leave. His songs are a way of saying, "you don't have to go home, but you got to get out of here!"

Don’t be afraid to expand yourself, to step out of your comfort zone. That’s where the joy and the adventure lie.

Michael Jackson is still 'Bad,' 25 years after album

-

Michael Jackson's "Bad" returns this September with new music and never-before-seen concert video in the first re-release of a full album from the King of Pop's catalogue since he died in 2009, Jackson's record company and estate said on Monday.

The "Bad 25" deluxe package, released on September 18, commemorates the 25th anniversary of the original, Grammy-winning album with hits like "The Way You Make Me Feel," and it will include demos and songs that didn't make the final cut of the original version.

The new songs were recorded in Jackson's studio while he was making the album, and the package also offers a DVD of Jackson's performance for Britain's Prince Charles, Lady Diana and 72,000 fans at London's Wembley Stadium in 1988.

The video was discovered in the singer's personal collection, and thought to be the only copy of the performance, taped for Jackson's own use, the estate said.

Jackson, a member of the Jackson Five family of singers and one of the best-selling pop stars of all time, died in 2009 of an overdose of the anaesthetic propofol and sedatives. His doctor at the time, Conrad Murray, is currently in jail after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the singer's death.

Craig Marks, editor of Popdust.com and co-author of "I Want My MTV," said the "Bad 25" anniversary package should highlight Jackson's legendary talents as a live performer and, perhaps, lure new fans.

"It continues to focus fans' attention on his music ... hopefully it brings to the fore what an incredible live performer he was and his songbook, given that 'Bad' was at the time considered to be very successful but was in the shadows of 'Thriller,'" Marks told Reuters.

"Bad" won two Grammy awards and sold more than 45 million copies around the world, fuelled by the popularity of singles such as "Dirty Diana," "Smooth Criminal" and the album title track, "Bad."

It was the singer's last collaboration with legendary Motown producer Quincy Jones, who helmed the production on Jackson's solo album "Off The Wall" and the hit follow-up "Thriller," one of the best-selling albums in history.

Marks believes "Bad" marked the end of an era for Jackson and Jones, and that Jackson used the record to explore deeper struggles following the phenomenal success of "Thriller."

"The paranoid romantic hell he's in, his mini snapshots of how he felt being in the public eye so nakedly, and in some ways so alone, he wasn't able to trust many people and he felt very isolated. You can hear that in the record," said Marks.

To gear up Jackson fans ahead of September, the late singer's record company will re-release the first single from the album, "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" on June 5th in the U.S
