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.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
