"Rock This Party (Everybody Dance Now)" is a song by French producer Bob Sinclar, co-produced by regular partner Cutee B and featuring Dollarman, Big Ali and Makedah on vocals. The song uses recreated parts of the massive 1990s hit "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)", by C+C Music Factory featuring Freedom Williams and was released as the third major single off the Western Dream album, on August 22, 2006. It became his most popular single on the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 3 and also reached number 6 on the ARIA Singles Chart.

Music video[edit]

The music video features David Beaudoin, the same boy from the "Love Generation" and "World, Hold On" videos. In this video, the boy "performs" the song (with two young girls) as Sean Paul, The Beatles, Bob Marley and Anthony Kiedis, along with other stylised performances as John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever, Outkast and AC/DC. The video also includes parodies of other music videos, such as "Smells Like Teen Spirit" (Nirvana), "Cry Me a River" (Justin Timberlake) and "Thriller" (Michael Jackson). Bob Sinclar appears in the middle of the music video as a neighbor next door who comes to the house's door step to complain about the loud music being played by the boy in the house.
