Here is the link to the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgZbKq_bxJ4

Now, I know it's an electronic song but I believe Avicii in this album was trying to fuse various genres with electronic music - so my question is, which genre does this song resemble very strongly?

I think the start is a sped up sample of the classic Sweet - The Ballroom Blitz, released 1974 and it sits comfortably in the glam rock genre, but then the high tight drum sound seems to be more rockabilly, such as the Stray Cats. It also has a strong beat, with lots of fuzzy and distorted vocals, both from the dance genre.

As I get older I realise more and more that genres mean less and less to me, but whatever it is it definitely a great song.
