metal you can dance to, that kinda sounds pop-ish. (Dance implies more then moshing or head bopping)
pop metal bands include HIM, Bon Jovi, Foreigner, Steppenwolf, Poison, and oher band such as these.

Where all the heart, soul and any level of intellectualism is gutted from the genre for poseur bands with their fake emotion, all neatly packaged in a three minute MTV video that does absolutly nothing except patronise fans of genuine metal. Usually comes added with a crossover at some point with an overrated rapper that appears on everyone's albums - apart from other rappers, who despise them for being commercialised crap with no worth whatsoever.
Linkin Park - with or whithout Jay-Z.
