Are you curious about the track used for the dance? It is Goo Goo Muck by The Cramps, and not Bloody Mary by Lady Gaga as many believe, see next chapter.

The Cramps were an American band active between 1976 and 2006. Its basic nucleus was composed by an husband and wife duo, the singer Lux Interior (real name Erick Lee Purkhiser) and guitarist Poison Ivy (real name Kristy Marlana Wallace).

They are recognized as the progenitors of the psychobilly genre, that fuses elements of punk rock and rockabilly together. You can read more about the band here.
