A great underground rave dance that is still great, but has been screwed up and manipulated by LMFAO
Here's a the short story of what Melbourne Shuffle
Melbourne Shuffle is an underground rave
dance that is normally done with Trance
and/or Rock/Heavy Metal. It originated in Melbourne
, Victoria, Australia back in the mid-1980's. Back then people normally danced to trance or rock earning some shuffler's the term "Rocker
". When 2004, 2005 rolled around, people started shuffling to Hardstyle
and Hard Trance
and wearing these baggy pants called "Phat Pants
are basically black, baggy thick denim jeans with reflective material on them, often making certain patterns and creates the illusion that they are gliding.
When 2010 rolled around, LMFAO came out with their song "Party Rock Anthem (Everyday I'm shuffling)".
This song, and the manipulated dance style often called "noobie shuffle' or 'newschool shuffle' did not bode well the original, Melbourne Shufflers who just danced for the fun and hanging around with their friends. It is apparent that LMFAO started shuffling just for fame, and only doing a move called the "Running Man" while real shuffling has much more moves like "Spins", "T-Step/SideStep", "Running/Walking Man", and "Kicks".
shuffles for fame and money
is done for fun, and passion.
