Son muy similares, pero no siempre son intercambiables. Quizá unos ejemplos ayuden.

malo
He's a bad man - Es un hombre malo (un hombre que hace cosas malas)
He's a mean man - Es un hombre malo (un hombre que trata mal a la gente)

miserable
He's a mean man - Es un hombre miserable
este uso no es tan común.

Mean también tiene otros significados:
- medio/promedio
- significar


Bad también tiene otros significados:

These apples have gone bad. Estas manzanas ya se echaron a perder (ya se pudrieron)


And don´t forget about:

malo = evil
maldad = evil

Espero eso ayude.
