Is this "Four on the Floor" music? I'm making a playlist...

MusicFilter time....So Dwight Schrute listens to Vixxen in his Camaro to psych up, I use these certain kind of songs with a propulsive beat in 4/4 time do to the same thing. I have no idea what it's called, but I heard someone mention it's sometimes called "four on the floor."

My favorite examples are songs like:
No Thugs in Our House
Church of the Poison Mind
- Culture Club
Mutiny, I Promise You
- The New Pornographers
As you can see my library and tastes are somewhat stuck in the 80s-90s so I'd really like to expand my playlist to other great examples of this kind of music. Does anyone have some other suggestions?
Is there any musicologist that can also tell me where this kind of style started? Motown? Bavarian drinking/stomping songs? Medieval chants?
