"The Salmon Dance" is a song by the English electronic music duo The Chemical Brothers and is the seventh track on their 2007 studio album We Are the Night. It features vocals by Fatlip and was released as the second single from the album on 10 September 2007.[1]

The video, directed by Dom & Nic, features a boy (played by British actor Rory Jennings[2]) looking at his fish tank, which is home to Fatlip the Piranha, his friend "Sammy the Salmon" (actually a squirrel fish), Puffa the beatboxing Pufferfish, a lionfish, and various other tropical fish such as seahorses, butterflyfish, angelfish and tangs.[citation needed] It is featured in Season 3, Episode 3 "The Black Clock of Time" of Bored to Death.

The single has reached number ten on the New Zealand RIANZ singles chart, mainly due to downloads and airplay.[citation needed] Its video was also nominated for a MTV Europe Music Award in 2007.
