Industrial dance is a North American alternative term for electronic body music and electro-industrial music. Fans, who are associated with this music scene, call themselves Rivetheads.

In general, "industrial dance" was characterized by its "electronic beats, symphonic keyboard lines, pile-driver rhythms, angst-ridden or sampled vocals, and cyberpunk imagery".[2][1]

Since the mid-1980s,[3] the term "industrial dance" has been used to describe the music of Cabaret Voltaire (early 80s),[4][5] early Die Krupps,[6] Portion Control,[7] The Neon Judgement,[6] Clock DVA,[8] Nitzer Ebb,[9][10] Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly,[11][12][13] Front 242,[6][10][2][14] Ministry (mid-80s era),[15] KMFDM,[16][17][18] Yeht Mae,[8] Meat Beat Manifesto, Manufacture,[19] Nine Inch Nails,[20][21] My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult,[22] Leæther Strip[23] or early Spahn Ranch.[24]

In March 1989, SPIN magazine presented a two-paged article about the industrial dance movement in Canada and the US.[19]
