Heard song 4 on my mp3 player at work today. Couldn't dance while driving the forklift, though.
BloodTears - 19.03.2012 at 12:42  
Pain Of Salvation's Disco Queen?

That comes to mind, although it can be argued that it isn't really a metal song, even though it has heavier parts here and there.

Great suggestion, i agree that the song isn't very metal, but it might get it place on my list since the band is featured here. CHEERS!

My pleasure It was the first one I remembered when I saw this list.

As far as dancing to Devy goes, I'd prefer something off Addicted

Rapsutin cover is great and highly catchy, but I already have the album it came off listed. The Carnival in Coal song is so groovy, like it and adding to list.

I was joking, but lots of hair is good dancing.

speaking of Crue, try "Kickstart my heart"

Def Leppard'-Pour Some Sugar On Me should be in a list.

you must be a chronic hopper choreographer. i didn't try to dance to any Metal stuff but it seems little fucking crazy doing over that. if you really want to embrace your dancing skills, you should probably start spinning 2pac or Eminem tracks.

Em? Don't you mean D-12?

I'll throw out something by System Of A Down as a "Suggestion" (click to their Discography & scroll down - titles are rather obvious, plus the very first song mentioned) and Judas Priest's "Turbo Lover" on behalf of a couple other people. Perhaps also the last one(s) here...

System edit - basically anything on the first album might suit

For Em, D-12 was the pro camp for many years. He learned all his rap skills, beefs-collision atrocious freestyle rapping, fighting and more importantly aggression. He stood up from there incredibly and made his own goddamn talented island.

btw, System Of "Amusement" Down' is more off a headbanging stuff rather than dancing your ass two and fro for it, leaving some exception songs( uhm...VIOLENT PORNOGRAPHY!!) behind.

What about Angizia's - Der Wein Der Lumpensammler? Not really Metal, but they are featured on ms. I can't stand still listening to that song (or rather the whole album)

Nice song, like a avant-garde German theatrical show. Almost making me dance, but I will add it up soon.

HAHAHA This is just a different side for me, I don't usually dance to metal, but Blood Stain Child made it possible, so I blame them and myself for listening to them. I mostly to metal more than dance. This list was only a bit of fun.

I've heard of this band, the song sounds good. Very doom sounding too. Must be highly delusional and high on something to dance to that.

I been listening to alot of Townsend recently and most of the songs are making me dance like a maniac. Ziltoid and Infinity are just body movers on their own.

Don't know if it's just me, but I always find Psycho Holiday by Pantera gets me moving (and not just headbanging I mean). It's not poppy or anything, just a really infectious rhythm to it

I like it, great old school thrashy tune. Gonna give it few thoughts, but I see no reason why this shouldn't be added. Thanks for the suggestion.

I agree, I have his 'Best of' album. Lots of songs there to move to. I think it might be safe to stay that I groove more than head-bang to Manson.
