High school has decades-old tradition with classic Depeche Mode song

For more than 40 years, the students at Golden High School in Golden, Colorado, have been dancing to the classic Depeche Mode hit “Just Can’t Get Enough.”

According to Principal Brian Conroy, it started around the time when the song came out, back in 1981. They call it the Hand Jive.

“What’s beautiful about the Hand Jive is that everybody does it,” said Conroy. “Golden High School is generational, so, when you go to the homecoming game at the School of Mines…and you look up. The entire stand is doing the Hand Jive.”

Watch nearly 1,500 students perform this dance in the school’s gymnasium:
