Hitting the strip club can be one of the highlights of your week, or it can be a real disappointment. Of course, it depends on a lot of things like the dancers, the atmosphere, and the drinks. But, one thing that can make or break an experience at the club is the music.
You see, stripping isn’t just about a woman taking her clothes off. It’s a seduction, and it’s all about how she moves to the music that is going to catch your eye and make you drool.
So, you better believe that selecting the best stripper songs is one of the most important choices made in the club. That said, let’s look at the 15 best stripper songs for dancers to move to.
Top 59 Best Stripper Songs
Pour Some Sugar On Me – Def Leppard
The funny story about this song is that it was actual strippers that made it a hit. Def Lep released this track off their 1987 album, Hysteria.
This album took years to make and was probably the most expensive album ever made at the time. And when it came out, “Pour Some Sugar On Me” wasn’t even a big hit.
However, it got a lot of play in strip clubs…
That then led to radio play and the eventual release of the song as a single a year later. Why was it a strip club hit? First of all, Def Lep was likely the biggest Hard Rock band in the world at the time.
And with this slow but energetic jam, women could use dramatic moves, toss their junk around, and get the room worked up.
Additionally, the chorus is sexually charged. So much so that many strip clubs used this song with shower and foam shows and spraying other “substances” on their dancers to make it even hotter.
You Shook Me All Night Long – ACDC
Here’s another Hard Rock stripper song that can get the blood pumping and the heart thumping. “You Shook ME All Night Long” is one of ACDC’s ultimate songs, and even though it was recorded in 1980 and released a second time in 1986 (first on Back in Black and then on Who Made Who).
This song has a solid thumping Rock beat that is great for a confident dancer to strut out to on the stage. It also has some hot guitar solos that dancers can get into and get dramatic with for a more intense performance.
And, this song is all about sex…
“Made a meal out of me and come back for more.” “Knocking me out with those American thighs.” “The walls were shakin – the earth was quaking – my mind was aching – and we were making it.” I mean, come on. That’s hot and heavy, and it’s something dancers can take a real bite out of.
Closer – Nine Inch Nails
Here’s another rocker that has become a classic strip club song. “Closer” is an older track from Trent Reznor’s second Nine Inch Nails album, The Downward Spiral, in 1994. Yeah, so most of the dancers probably weren’t even born yet. So what?
This song is dark, heavy, industrial, and honestly pretty savage. Check out these lyrics. “You let me violate you – You let me desecrate you – You let me penetrate you – You let me complicate you.”
And the classic lines “I wanna fuck you like an animal – I wanna feel you from the inside.” OK, chill out a bit there, Trent. But, with this industrial sound and the dirty lyrics, the performances with this song can get pretty nasty and intense, so hold onto your hats.
Girls, Girls, Girls – Mötley Crüe
A much tamer, more sing-along song perfect for the club, is “Girls, Girls, Girls” by Mötley Crüe. And why shouldn’t it be? This is a song written about strip bars.
Furthermore, it drops the names of some of the most famous clubs in the country at the time – Tattletails in Atlanta, the Dollhouse in Fort Lauderdale, Crazy Horse in Paris, Tropicana in Tampa Bay, and more.
Now, this might be a cheesy hard-ish Rock song from 1987 that reminds a lot of girls of their creepy uncle, but that doesn’t mean it ain’t fun. It’s a classic song that’s lighthearted and also goes great with a revue when all the dancers get out on stage together.
Pop That Pussy – 2 Live Crew
Here’s another crew, but one that’s a whole lot dirtier. The infamous foul-mouthed rap group 2 Live Crew dropped “Pop That Pussy” in 1991. But, while Mötley Crüe kept it pretty clean, 2 Live Crew got downright filthy on this track.
The cover of the single even features the group in a pool staring at asses on display, with one member spraying some sort of bodily fluid on them. The thing is, any girl into classic raunchy Hip Hop that’s going to dance to this song is going to give an equally filthy performance.
And, you’ll be surprised to find out that it was Brother Marquis, and not Shakespeare, who wrote, “Bend over and spread ’em, girl – Show-w-w me those pussy pearls – Rub that ass and play with that clit – You know I like that freaky shit.” Classy, right?
Milkshake – Kelis
Better dial it down a little. So, here’s a song that’s a little less direct. “Milkshake” by Kelis came out in 2003 on her 3rd album, Tasty. And you know it was a massive hit because it was even nominated for a Grammy.
This song has a thick beat and a deep synth sound that throws off some nice bass. That makes it a great track for shaking milk to, or whatever else you want to shake. It’s also a competitive song, which is great for strippers who want to show that they’re number one in the club.
“My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard – And they’re like, it’s better than yours.” For strippers, them’s fighting words.
Drop It Like It’s Hot – Snoop Dogg (Feat. Pharrell Williams)
In 2004, Snoop Dogg was right in the middle of his shizzle phase, and Pharrell was in the spotlight with his solo work and with The Neptunes. That’s who produced this song with its slow, juicy beat, which is perfect for shaking juicy asses to.
This whole song just works. You’ve got Snoop and Pharrell laying down smooth rhymes, a great beat to dance to, and a chorus that makes clothes and booties drop.
So what is “Drop It Like It’s Hot” supposed to mean, anyway? Man, that’s up to your interpretation. But, in the club, the general interpretation strippers make, is getting down low so you can see all the goods. That makes this one hell of a great song for the strip club.
Get Low – Lil John & The East Side Boyz (Feat. Ying Yang Twins)
If you want to drop down and get low to the ground, you need to be dancing to “Get Low” from Lil John & The East Side Boyz featuring the Ying Yang Twins.
This track came out in 2002 on Lil John’s Kings Of Crunk album and became the perfect anthem for the Crunk sub-genre of Hip Hop. It was also a smash hit song that got to #2 in the charts.
A built-in dance routine?
This is one of those songs with the dance instructions in it, which, to be honest, I think makes things easier for strippers. They just need to listen and dance along to what the lyrics say. “Bend over to the front, touch them toes – Back that ass up and down and get low.” The choreography writes itself!
This song is raunchy, skanky, and crunk. It’s the perfect song for a stripper with a lot of assets and not a whole lot of dance steps.
Back That Azz Up – Juvenile (Feat. Mannie Fresh & Lil Wayne)
If you need a song with clear instructions, you can’t get much clearer than “Back That Azz Up.” This track from Juvenile and featuring Mannie Fresh and Lil Wayne, can get the energy in the club running high. This is a faster song that is going to get bodies moving and booties shaking.
“Girl you looks good – Why don’t ya back that ass up” is a mantra for the club and is a call to the phat booty girls to get them out on display. This track is tight and gets the room moving right.
Shake Ya Ass – Mystikal (Feat. Pharrell Williams)
While we’re still on these instructional songs, “Shake Ya Ass” has got to be one of the 15 best stripper songs because it just tells them what to do. “Shake ya ass – Watch yourself – Shake ya ass – Show me what you’re working with.”
Sure it’s from 2000, but this song has still got all you need for a perfect strip club track. Pharrell Williams is back, featured again on this track by Mystikal. And the music was produced by The Neptunes once again.
Mystikal’s voice is funky, raspy, and dirty on this track, setting a perfect atmosphere for the song. “Forget a dollar baby, pick up fifty!” he tells the girls, and you know he’s referring to waterfalls. The music has a slow, tight beat with deep bass that can shake all the rumps in the room.
Got Money – Lil Wayne (Feat. T-Pain)
This time, it’s Lil Wayne who’s back. He’s a bit older and more mature, and a heck of a lot more tattooed. This track comes from his 2008 album, Tha Carter III, but was also put out as a single exclusively on iTunes.
T-Pain and his autotune sound are also fresh in this song. The beat is not too fast, not too slow, but just right to bounce to. The lyrics get the money-hungry strippers excited and even competitive, trying to get that cheddar.
Listen to these lyrics. “Like woosh! – There goes one thousand” and “If you got money (yeah) and you know it (yeah) – Then take it out your pocket and show it then throw it like – (Fly!) This-a-way (fly!) that-a-way.” This is just inviting waterfalls and dollar bills flying all over the club.
Dangerous – Kardinal Official (Feat. Akon)
This song is perfect because it gets girls out competing to be the most alluring, attractive, and seductive stripper in the club. Everyone wants to be dangerous, so “Dangerous” by Kardinal Official is going to be a perfect song to get down to.
On top of just the lyrics in the chorus, this song has a great beat. It’s a bit fast but bouncy, which lets women shake it any way they want.
“I notice you noticing me” is the theme of this song. And, any stripper who knows the game is going to lock eyes with the guy she’s trying to attract and work her magic for him up on stage.
Hot In Herre – Nelly
Yeah, this song is a bit outdated, coming from Nelly’s 2002 album, Nellyville. But it still slams, and the lyrics are perfect for the strip club. “It’s getting hot in here – So take off all your clothes – I am getting so hot – I’m gonna take my clothes off” is pretty much what’s going on.
The music is tight. This is yet another track produced by The Neptunes using a sample from Chuck Brown’s funk hit “Bustin’ Loose.” It’s thick, funky, and also somehow sexy and a great song to dance to.
Whatever You Like – T.I.
Man, T.I. is so smooth, and this is his smoothest track of all. Unlike the other popular strip club songs we’ve been looking at, which are hard, raunchy, dirty, whatever, this song is slow and kind of romantic.
T.I. telling the girls, “You can have whatever you like” is a perfect line for players. Yeah, you’d better have the money to back it up. But, if you want to make a more intimate connection with a dancer, this is the kind of song to look out for.
I Kissed A Girl – Katy Perry
A surprise track to wrap up our list of the 15 best stripper songs for the strip club.
Katy Perry? Really?
This sugar-sweet pop-rock is supposed to be all innocent and experimental, but of course, the girls in the club are going to play it up a different way. There’s not a lot that turns guys on more than some girl-on-girl action. So, in the clubs that know what’s up, they’ll get a few dancers out on stage doing some intimate dancing together to quicken pulses and stiffen… necks.
This song also has a decent Rock beat that makes it good to dance to for strippers that like a little edge to their performances. So, it’s a winner all around, and that makes it one of the best songs for the strip club ever.

The 15 Best Stripper Songs of All Time
There’s a good reason for every song that’s on this list. Some are older, even older than all the dancers you’ll see dancing to them, but they’re still classics that you’ll hear in most clubs’ line-ups.
Other songs have a hard rock edginess to them for more dramatic stripping performances. Still, others are held down by some of the juiciest, thickest Hip Hop beats that encourage twerking like nobody’s business.
The perfect song has to match the perfect performance…
Women who dance hard and powerfully will probably go with Rock songs. Booty-shakers will choose Hip Hop beats. And dirtier, raunchier strippers will choose songs that let them get hot, steamy, and downright sexual up on stage. There’s always something for everyone in the strip club.
Until next time, happy listening, and try to avoid the Champagne Room.
