Mainland Regional High School 'Flash Mob': Students Dance To 'We Are Young' (VIDEO)

As if graduation wasn't memorable enough, students from Mainland Regional High School in New Jersey decided to go out in style.

Members of the graduating class organized a flash mob to Fun's hit single "We Are Young," which has become widely regarded as an unofficial anthem for young, bright-eyed students everywhere.

As the music blared through the speakers, seniors stood from their chairs and waved their arms in unison before running to the middle of the "stage" to dance and sing along to the uplifting lyrics: "Tonight/ We are young/ So let's set the world on fire/ We can burn brighter than the sun."

The dance even received the stamp of approval from faculty, who were more than willing to let the teens do their thing.

"Graduation is their chance to shine. We should let them shine," Mark Marrone, the school's principal, told the Press of Atlantic City. "We trust them to do the right thing, and they always have."

The electrifying tune set the tone for celebration as the graduates tossed their hats in the air to close the door on the last four years and welcome the future -- a finale that made the crowd erupt in applause.

Although the dance was a hit among family, students and staff, the high school wasn't the first to coordinate a flash mob for graduation.

Earlier this month, students at Eastwood High School in El Paso, Texas, put together a performance to thank their parents for their support over the years. Members of the graduating class enthusiastically danced to a mix of tunes, including "I Had The Time Of My Life" and "I'm So Excited."

Of course, the year wouldn't be complete without a graduation flash mob set to Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe."

And students at Ohio's Avon Lake High School did exactly that in a hilarious performance paying homage to several viral videos featuring the hit song.
