LMFAO’s ‘Party Rock Anthem’ Improves So Many Classic Songs

Every day you’re shufflin’. It would be nice to take a break from the cascading horror that is 2018 to get oddly nostalgic about the recent past. Even better would be mixing nostalgia while also making someone dance to songs they weren’t originally dancing to, as was the case with the Oscar Isaac dancing and Pennywise dancing in IT memes. Oh, hey, here’s a new meme of LMFAO’s hit “Party Rock Anthem” from 2011 being set to other popular songs.

The meme grew in popularity when the tweet above of LMFAO dancing to Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl” went viral, but the first instance of the meme we could find was this tweet matching “Party Rock Anthem” with the Evangelion opening:

From there, other Twitter users were quickly seeking out other songs in the 129 to 130 beats per minute range to make their own mashups. This one was particularly inspired:

Plenty of catchy tunes matched LMFAO’s dancing perfectly:

It even sort of resembles country line dancing with the right music:

This doesn’t quite work but we commend the effort. It’s a hot one.

And since it’s October…

And this last one went above and beyond with some Drowning Pool:
