Maniac Dance is a single first released by Stratovarius in 2005 through Sanctuary Records. It was released as a promo for the band's self titled album. The instrumental demo was named "Original Demo from Hästfittan" which in English means "The horse pussy" and only features guitar. It is the last single to feature longtime members Timo Tolkki and Jari Kainulainen.

Music Video[edit]

The music video for this song was shot on April 15, 2005 in Helsinki by director and guitarist Timo Tolkki's old schoolmate Antti Jokinen.[1] It features a woman who wakes up, starts acting crazy, and starts to destroy things while scenes from different wars are shown. The band can also be seen playing their instruments. The video is mostly in black and white and features very fast camera shots.
