"Dance, Dance" is the second single from Fall Out Boy's third studio album From Under the Cork Tree. Released in 2005, the single reached #9 in the U.S., becoming their second Top 10 single. It also reached #6 on the Pop 100. The single reached #8 on the UK Singles Chart, becoming their second Top 10 hit there as well. The song is featured in What A Catch, Donnie.
This song has been included in multiple video games; Burnout Revenge, Madden 2006, Rock Revolution, the home version of Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA, 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. 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.
The demo for the song includes an extra verse that was later cut out of the original.
The music video was filmed at the famous 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 as well as 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.
The "Dance, Dance" music video premiered on October 11, 2005, and has been subsequently retired from Total Request Live.
The black and white striped jacket Patrick was wearing in the video can be seen in the music video for Fall Out Boy's music video, What a Catch, Donnie.
