Top 10 Metal Songs You Can Irish-Dance ToMetal_Treasure This list was made for fun but certain observations can lead to some more serious conclusions.
I have always thought one can't dance to metal music but this might be wrong, at least partly.
On the one hand, some Irish dances are very fast - I have watched Michael Flatley and his Irish dance shows and I think these guys are so fast that can even dance to thrash songs. On the other hand, some metal songs might be suitable for Irish dancing.
In 1989, Flatley set a Guinness Book world record for tapping speed at 28 taps per second and in 1998 he broke his own record with 35 taps per second.
Our dancing probably wouldn't be exactly Irish dancing but you get the idea - we can improvise simple moves that look like Irish dancing. SteveTerreberry did something similar in his video How To Be POWER METAL! (2:00 min). My list was partly inspired by his video.
I noticed that the most suitable songs are mostly thrash and power metal but not all thrash or power metal songs are. However, this list isn't limited to thrash and power metal.
So put your hands on your waist and start Speed-Irish-Thrash-Power dancing.
