How to dubstep: A video tutorial in ten easy (dub)steps

Though it's often been suggested that the fundamentals of dubstep descend from a lyrical prophesy in Morris Day and the Time's 1984 hit "The Bird," in which Day intimates that "you don't need no finesse or no personality/You just need two arms and an attitude," in practice dubstep is somewhat more complicated than that "Chicken Dance" variant. Really, the movements are more akin to a robot turtle trying to escape a coral reef.

Confusing? It is. And if you're going to keep up on what the kids are doing these days, you're going to need some help. That's where we come in, with this video tutorial, where we've compiled the best dubstep videos on all of the internets and broken them down into layman's terms.
