"Shut Up and Dance" is a song by American hard rock band Aerosmith. Written by Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Jack Blades, and Tommy Shaw, it first appeared on the band's 1993 album Get a Grip. It is one of seven singles from that album to chart on any chart, reaching #24 on the UK Singles Chart.
Some of the lyrics double entendres, such as "sex is like a gun: you aim, you shoot, you run" and "when you're splittin' hairs with Mr. Clean, it's like gettin' head from a guillotine, and the night has just begun." The chorus is a refrain of "talk is cheap, shut up and dance; don't get deep, shut up and dance."
