Earlier this week, we unveiled Rolling Stone's new cover story starring dance music superstar Deadmau5. The DJ may be one of the biggest EDM artists on the road these days, but he's hardly alone. In the wake of the genre's boom over the last few years, artists like Skrillex, Swedish House Mafia and David Guetta are playing to enormous festival crowds. 

Now we have a question for you: What is your favorite dance song of all time? You don't have to be limited to the current crop of artists. Maybe you're a fan of 1990s survivors, like Fatboy Slim and the Chemical Brothers, or maybe you're old school and into Donna Summer, the Bee Gees and KC and the Sunshine Band. Hell, take it all the back to the 1950s and "Rock Around the Clock" if you want.

You can vote here in the comments, on facebook.com/rollingstone or on Twitter using the #weekendrock hashtag.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
