Song Most Associated With: Digital Underground, “The Humpty Dance”

Era Most Popular: ’90s

Brief Description: In the words of Mr. Hump, first you limp to the side like ya leg was broken, shakin’ and twitchin’ kinda like you was smoking. And, uh, that’s about it. You got it down when you appear to be in pain, though.

Meaningful Stat: 4—Number of races encouraged to do the Humpty Dance at the end of the song. (Black people, white people, Puerto Ricans and Samoans.) We’re sure just about everyone else is permitted too, though.
