"They need us," Redfoo tells AOL Music Blog, shaking his head. "And we need them."
Since forming on April Fool's Day in 2007, LMFAO have seen their fair share of poor partying techniques. "When we went out, it was missing on the road," admits Redfoo. And so the pair began writing music to teach the world how to party rock.
But the songs of 2009's 'Party Rock' album and the recently released 'Sorry for Party Rocking' are only part of the puzzle. Beyond the instructional lyrics of 'Shots' and current mega-hit 'Party Rock Anthem,' Redfoo and Sky Blu have distilled party rocking to even more of a scientific process. Here are six of their best tips for more effective rocking of the party:
1. Pick the Right Soundtrack
"Gotta have good music," says Redfoo. "A good DJ. A good playlist, if you're on iTunes."
2. Avoid the Sausage Party at All Costs
As far as LMFAO are concerned, a get together with nine dudes and one girl is almost torture. To avoid that fate, they recommend cultivating a girl to guy ratio of at least four to one. "If you bring dudes, you have to make them bring at least two nachos," Redfoo adds. Nachos, Sky Blu clarifies, are any girls "that are not yours."
3. Pick the Right Alcohol
"Gotta have shots," Redfoo explains. "Something quick. I mean, beer is good, but I get bloated."
4. Never, under any circumstances, fake your alcohol consumption
Sky Blu won't call anyone out by name, but he does have a story to tell about some of the so-called partiers they've met in the music industry: "When we were coming up in the game, we would share the bill with a lot of acts and sometimes we'd see acts put water in their Goose bottle and just drink the whole Goose bottle on stage. Like, oh, you're so hardcore! Then we'd get on stage and we'd drink, because it's real for us, you know what I mean? When you're putting Pellegrino in your Goddamn Goose bottle... s---, man."
5. Embrace the Sadder Side of Partying
When you're partying hard, someone's bound to get hurt somewhere along the lines. Hearts get broken. People get rejected. Parties have to end. Instead of trying to ignore the potential pathos, LMFAO choose to add the occasional song about love and heartbreak, like 'La La La' or 'One Day,' to their party rocking oeuvre.
"There's always an emotional vibe everywhere you go," muses Redfoo. "At the party, that's a very emotional thing when they turn on the lights -- that can be a downer. You say, 'Wait a second! It's only 1:30AM!' It's very emotional sometimes that people can't get into the party. The velvet rope is likened to the Great Wall of China, or something. It's made to hold people. That's like segregation, the velvet rope. It can get deep at the party so, now and again we just sprinkle just a little bit of the emotional side."
6. Never Use Your Party Rocking Powers for Evil
With meticulously-crafted club anthems like 'I'm in Miami Bitch' and 'Champagne Showers' plus their finely-tuned party rules, the men of LMFAO have demonstrated they understand human behaviour and how to control it. They know what makes party rockers tick. They know how to make you move. They can motivate you to pour champagne all over each other. In the wrong hands, this kind of expert crowd manipulation could go very wrong, but LMFAO promise to only use their abilities for good.
"We might get medieval, old-school, but evil is the opposite of a party," Redfoo concludes.
Sky Blu agrees: "You can't kill nobody at the party."
