"Dance, Dance" is a song by American rock band Fall Out Boy and the second single from their third studio album, From Under the Cork Tree. Released in late 2005, in the United States it reached No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 2006,[1] becoming the band's second consecutive top 10 hit single. The track also reached No. 6 on the defunct-Pop 100. It was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for the shipment of one million copies.[2] Internationally, the single reached No. 8 on the UK Singles Chart, becoming their second top 10 hit in that region as well. "Dance, Dance" has won many awards, including Viewer's Choice at MTV Video Music Awards, and received various nominations.

This song has been included in multiple video games; Burnout Revenge, Madden 2006, Rock Revolution, Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, the home version of Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA,[3] SingStar Pop Hits, the US version of SingStar Rocks!, and as downloadable content for Karaoke Revolution Presents American Idol Encore 2 for the PlayStation 3 as well as Rock Band 3.[4] It also appeared on the Brazilian and Argentinian version of Infinity on High, From Under the Cork Tree's 2007 follow-up. Pete Wentz prevented the Kidz Bop Kids from singing this on Kidz Bop 10 because of the sexual overtones to the song.[5]

Music video

The music video shows the members of the band performing at a homecoming dance, and simultaneously attending as nerdier versions of themselves. The video starts with "A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More "Touch Me"". The end scene of Pete dancing is a parody taken from Revenge of the Nerds.

The music video was filmed at Salesian High School, which is located in New Rochelle, New York, a suburb of New York City. A cameo is made by Ben Jorgensen of the rock group Armor for Sleep and Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes.

The video for "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race" is a continuation of this video, showing the fans as being cardboard, and the whole thing being fake. Pete's date in the video is one of the attendees at Pete's funeral in this video. She is kissing the boy of the music video "Sugar, We're Goin Down".

The "Dance, Dance" music video premiered on October 11, 2005 and has been subsequently retired from Total Request Live.

The picture on the back of the book that Andy Hurley is reading at a scene where he is on the bleachers is also on the album From Under the Cork Tree.

Katrina Bowden, best known now as Cerie in television series 30 Rock, has a minor role in this music video.

The black and white striped jacket Patrick was wearing in the video can be seen in the music video for Fall Out Boy's song, "What a Catch, Donnie".
