Two gangs in Thailand have broken out into a gunfight after an argument over a 'Gangnam Style' dance competition.

At least 50 bullets were fired by the teenage gangs, who have been rivals for some time.

Bangkok police believe the two gangs were partying and drinking through to Friday morning when they began competing against each other in a 'Gangnam Style' dance off.

The groups began arguing as the competition heated up and one of the gangs stormed off.

"Four people from the group returned at 6am and fired several shots into the sky," one of the teenagers told police during questioning.

"Three of them later returned about 8am and they sprayed bullets in all directions like in action movies. I and other people there were running for our lives."

An officer from Khlong Ton police station, Lieutenant Colonel Apichart Thongchandee, said cars parked on the street were damaged but no people were injured during the fight.

"We now know who all the attackers are. After questioning all the witness and inspecting the firearms, we will seek arrest warrants for them," he said.

'Gangnam Style' is a South Korean pop song which is the most liked YouTube video of all time.
