"Porn Star Dancing" is the debut single by the Canadian rock band My Darkest Days from their debut self-titled album released on September 21, 2010. The song spent 26 weeks on Billboard's Rock Songs chart where, on December 11, 2010, it peaked at number seven.[1] It performed better on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, where it spent two weeks at number one. Chad Kroeger of Nickelback appears in the "Porn Star Dancing" video, as does American rapper Ludacris and Black Label Society lead vocalist and lead guitarist Zakk Wylde. The music video was directed by Brendan Cochrane.

Ludacris was originally featured only in the Canadian release of the video; however, due to the popularity of the track, it was subsequently adopted as the mainstream video release.
