“Party Rock Anthem”

Being released back in 2011, “Party Rock Anthem” was not only a popular song by pop group LMFAO, but it also made the “Melbourne Shuffle” more well-known. The “Melbourne Shuffle” was a dance that required fast heel-and-toe movement. Along with the running man dance, it is typically performed to electronic music. This catchy, electro house pop song had people freestyling to the combination of the running man, the shuffle, and spin moves. Back then, it was highly possible that you would have seen someone jamming to “Party Rock Anthem” with their Beats by Dre headphones on.

 

“Gangnam Style”

The line, “Oppa Gangnam Style,” may bring back a rush of nostalgia from 2012. Within South Korea’s music video sensation, “Gangnam Style” was appreciated internationally and even went viral in the U.S. It was the first music video on Youtube to reach 1 billion views. To this day, it currently holds a striking number of 3.2 billion views.

 

“Harlem Shake”

The “Harlem Shake” was released in 2012, but it wasn’t until early 2013 that it became viral. There were a plethora of different “Harlem Shake” versions all over the internet, but what made it so exciting is how creative the challenges would get. The challenge would first consist of one person dancing to the song and when the chorus hits with the line, “Do the Harlem Shake,” there would be a group of people dressed in bizarre costumes dancing as if there was no tomorrow.

 

Looking back at these trends may make us reminiscence and question how they got so popular, but there’s no denying that they were revolutionary.
