Party Songs With A Bang

Updated on September 30, 2016

Let's Get Started

According to the online Oxford Dictionary, the word "bang" is a noun, verb, adverb, and an exclamation. In the Free Online Dictionary, the word 'bang-bang' began as a description of the sound of exploding ammunition. According to Webster, the word 'bang' originates with the Nordic people and is associated with the use of a hammer. The hammer, back then, served as a mufti-functional tool for work or play, and also used as an instrument of survival.

To hear the words 'bang-bang' today one usually thinks of an old cowboy movie where the villain makes his victim dance to the rhythm of the guns while shooting at their feet. However, over the past hundred years or so, the word 'bang' has evolved and is now included in many common or cliché descriptive phrases.

Of all its uses, the word 'bang' is best incorporated in modern day song, and many a song has been written with its inclusion in lyric or title. The purpose of this page is to serve as a quick reference for some of the hottest party songs that make you want to move your feet. In other words, this is a party about songs with a bang, and you are invited.

The 2014 Bang Bang Songs

Talk about Hot! The latest "Bang Bang" music video performed by Jesse J., Adriana Grande, and Niki Minaj has been viewed more than 26 million times in less than a month. The ladies step into the street with the girls on their feet and everyone's dancing to provocative lyrics set to a syncopated beat. Their official YouTube video shown above is an elaborate performance perfectly choreographed and something the boys would appreciate.

"Bang Bang" by Max, Sam Tsui, Kurt Schneider

The College Boys Rock!

In all fairness, the "Bang Bang" performance by The College Boys (aka Max, Sam Tsui, Kurt Schneider") really rocks the house.

It is an excellent version of the top pop song, and in less than a week their video was working its way toward a million views.

This version of the song would be welcome at any party -- especially in a high school, frat house, or hip party setting. The guys do a great job with the song, and this is a version the ladies will appreciate.

Both versions of the 2014 Bang Bang song make you want to get up on the floor and dance. I predict this will be a favorite on the New Years Eve party song list.

      Well, I'm old school, and I like Cher's "Bang, Bang, My Baby Shot Me Down." But you sure came up with a lot of songs with that word, some I've never heard of. Lots of work went into this Hub!
