The Patriots tight end paid his respect to the deceased DJ in his own way.
Avicii's music was specifically designed to transport hoards of club goers into a state of euphoric bliss. Featuring a persistent BPM and groove-worthy bass, the late producer's compositions were created with hedonist tendencies in mind.
Rob Gronkowski, one of the most talked about and recognizable players in the NFL, took time out of his athletic duties to let loose at a club in Austin, Texas. During the night, the DJ decided to pay homage to the loss of an EDM stalwart by spinning Avicii's seminal hit "Levels." This prompted a rather emphatic response from Gronkowski, who took to the dance floor to engage in a dance battle with a female club goer.
Placing his water bottle down on the DJ booth, the Patriots' tight end showed off some questionable dance moves that resembled a pre-workout stretch routine. However, Gronkowski did not let his worthy opponent get the best of him, and continued to bust a move for the duration of the song.
