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

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

Since the mid-1980s,[3] the term "industrial dance" has been used to describe the music of Cabaret Voltaire (early 1980s),[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,[2][6][10][14] Ministry,[15] KMFDM,[16][17][18] Yeht Mae,[8] Meat Beat Manifesto, Manufacture,[19] Nine Inch Nails,[20][15][21] My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult,[22] Leæther Strip[23] or early Spahn Ranch.[24]

In March 1989, Spin Magazine presented an one-paged article about the industrial dance movement in Canada and the U.S.[19]
