THE DANCE FLOOR — Love it or hate it, disco was a phenomenon.
But while anyone over the age of 40 may have extremely strong feelings about the music genre, many of today's kids have no idea what it is. So what happens when you introduce Generation Z to some of the most famous songs of the '70s? The Fine Brothers decided to find out in their latest episode of kids reacting to things.
As soon as the video starts, we know we're going to get some mixed reactions from these kids. The first song that plays is 1978's "Le Freak" and some of the kids are mystified.
"I have no idea what this is," one girl says.
Yesterday's Have You Seen This?
But a few of her fellow youths immediately recognize the tune and start bouncing up and down in their seats with the beat. One kid even starts singing along and impressively knows most of the words.
As the video continues, we see the kids react to more disco classics like "Heart of Glass," "Disco Inferno," "I Will Survive," and of course, "Stayin' Alive." Their expressions range from appropriately annoyed to adorably excited. Regardless of your thoughts on the genre, you'll probably relate to at least one of these reactions.
At the end of the video, the kids get a lesson in disco history and vote on whether or not they think disco should make a comeback now. I won't spoil the ending, but after you watch the video, let us know in the comments if you agree with these kids about disco's potential comeback.
