A term used to describe DDR groupies, usually of the burly men variety. Their general characteristics are: Burly, and Male.

Some fool told me that it actually meant people who hug the bar,they get to close to it when they are dancing, or something similar, but I explained to him that its EXACTLY what these burly men do. Hug the bar. Urghh.
Although Troy is neither burly, nor male, he is still a bar hugger according to Luke....
