Break The Rules

The ’80s was the decade of the disco. But that doesn’t necessarily mean rock ‘n roll didn’t spawn several classic hits. Some of them went ahead and incorporated what’s trending but somehow still stayed true to their roots. It wasn’t rock’s golden era but there were still several musical gems we can pick out.

Besides, rock isn’t all hard and headbanging. The following tracks prove you can bust out your dance moves to them too!

10. David Bowie – “Let’s Dance” (1983)

There’s a reason why it’s one of his best-selling singles. Bonus points: Stevie Ray Vaughan played a solo towards the end!

9. The Clash – “Should I Stay Or Should I Go?” (1982)

It’s not just an easy listen, it’s also something you can tap your feet or sway your hips to.

8. Quiet Riot – “Cum On Feel The Noize” (1983)

Who says you can’t dance to heavy metal?!

7. Journey – “Don’t Stop Believin'” (1981)

Try not to sing this too.

6. Bryan Adams – “Summer of ’69” (1985)

Don’t you wish people still make songs like this?

5. Def Leppard – “Pour Some Sugar on Me” (1987)

Feeling awkward on the dance floor? This will help you loosen up!

4. Bon Jovi – “Livin’ On A Prayer” (1986)

If you don’t scream along to “Woah, we’re half way there / Woah, livin’ on a prayer” then you’re listening to it all wrong.

3. Aerosmith and Run DMC – “Walk This Way” (1986)

It’s the collaboration we never thought we needed.

2. AC/DC – “You Shook Me All Night Long” (1980)

Dancing to AC/DC? Why not?!

1. Joan Jett & The Blackhearts – “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” (1982)

This is absolute gold!
