The best way to show that your group is "down with the kids" and "funky" - or [[TotallyRadical whatever it is the under-25s say these days]] - is to stick them in a [[CoolestClubEver hopelessly contrived looking nightclub]] set full of impossibly attractive young women and maybe a few men and have them break it down on the dance floor, generally being the life of the party.

* SystemOfADown's "B.Y.O.B." has the band playing in a club but that club is invaded by soldiers wearing helmets with displays on the front apparently in some sort of sting operation and force all the club goers and the band to wear such helmets.

* {{Spaced}} had a pretty realistic techno/dance club for one of it's episodes.. well, until they started playing a A-Team theme remix. [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome And it was awesome.]]

* Beautifully deconstructed in ''TheOffice'' (UK version), with an episode that ended at a works outing at one of these places... which was depicted as rather unpleasant and sleazy, and no fun at all unless you happened to be completely drunk.

* Deconstructed in the Chester See music video (also featuring Creator/{{Tobuscus}} and [[Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway Wayne Brady]]) "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmxUMcqGGTw Whistle While I Work It]]", where a group of guys are trying to get into a club. They get drunk at home before that due to the overpriced drinks at the club, park five blocks away to avoid the expensive valet parking, get sent to the back of the huge line by the bouncers for not having any girls with them, have one of them barred from coming in for wearing flip-flops, try to hit on girls and fail (either because of the crowded dance floor or the loud music), are unable to get a bartender or a waiter (since they're sober by the time they get in), too afraid to use the filthy bathroom, try to move in on a guy who has a table only to be dragged away. Wayne Brady shows up and has the hostess recognize him but even someone like him can't get into the VIP section. The group's signature "dance move" is a basic pelvic thrust that both disgusts and amazes everyone else. WordOfGod is that the intention was to show what clubs are like for most of the guys in RealLife.

* When the ITV network introduced all-night weekend TV in the middle 1980's, a cheap infill series broadcast around midnight on a Saturday was called ''The Hit-Man and Her''. This was presented by the SimonCowell of the day, pop impresario PeteWaterman, assisted by a very young and toothy Michaela Strachan. It was recorded in nightclubs around the UK, consisted of three hours worth of chart dance tunes interspersed with daft games and interviews, and sure enough nobody ugly ended up on film, nobody got drunk, nobody had the crap beaten out of them by neanderthal bouncers, et c. this idealised nightclub, it was later revealed, was usually filmed during the ''day'' with an invited and pre-selected audience consisting of models, aspirant actors and fame wannabees.

* Subverted by the {{Music/Soulwax}} [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lH-wuTV8TnY video for E Talking]] - ''everyone's'' on drugs from literally A-Z and the clubbers cover a spectrum of old/young/attractive/not so much, but because of the drugs even the most generically pretty among them don't look so great.

* The Sum 41 video for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr9NmG68vPQ "What we're all about"]] twists this trope slightly. They band is playing at a night club, but because it's the ''Film/{{Spider-Man}}'' soundtrack, the band is on the ceiling while the clubbers watch from below.

* Nearly all of Music/{{Pitbull}}'s output, and that includes the songs that he's featured on.
* Music/TheAxisOfAwesome parodies and deconstructs club songs in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uk-I85A5-hU "In The Club Tonight"]], complete with Lee styling himself after Music/{{Pitbull}}.

If the video is for a proper instrumental band, expect the lead signer and lead guitarist to grab most of the screen time while the funny-looking drummer and bassist get a few standard shots of some women mooning over them.
