"The Safety Dance" is a song written and recorded by Canadian new wave band Men Without Hats; and to date, it remains their biggest hit. It was initially released in Canada in January 1983 as the second single from the band's first full-length album, Rhythm of Youth.
The song was written by Ivan Doroschuk after he had been kicked out of a club for pogoing
The pogo is a dance in which the dancers jump up and down, while remaining in the same location; the dance takes its name from its resemblance to the use of a pogo stick, especially in a common version of the dance, where an individual keeps their torso stiff, their arms rigid, and their legs close together.
The bouncers did not like pogoing so they would tell pogoers to stop or be kicked out of the club. Thus, the song is a protest and a call for freedom of expression. Other lyrics in the song include references to the way pogoing looked to bouncers, especially "And you can act real rude and totally removed/And I can act like an imbecile



The Safety Dance reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in September 1983
Safety Dance is the #17 top one hit wonder of the 80's
