Top 5 Worst Wedding Songs of All Time

Music is one of the best parts of a wedding, and if done right can leave your guests with lifetime memories of dancing the night away. Yet the music balance is delicate… Nothing shuts down a dance floor and ruins a wedding faster than bad, offensive music. Whether it’s an overplayed song or just a downright inappropriate tune, bad music can quickly lead to an empty dance floor, unhappy guests, and a miserable bride and groom.

There are a few rules to keep in mind when it comes to songs: if it will offend your grandmother, don’t play it. If it insinuates bad things will happen once you’re married, don’t play it. If it’s an obnoxiously cheesy or overplayed song, at least consider not playing it…

When planning a wedding, it’s wise to discuss the song list with your band or DJ far in advance of the wedding. Share your preferences, review the set list and – most importantly – ensure the band or DJ is well aware of the songs on your ‘do not play’ list.

While opinions vary, below is our roundup of top 5 worst wedding songs that should be avoided at all costs:

5.) “Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen

The classic Queen tune “Another One Bites the Dust” is one of the worst wedding songs out there. Newlyweds should envision their day as the beginning of a lifetime together, not the day they “bit the dust,” fell out of the game, and their lives ended. It’s similar to the best man yelling “don’t do it!” as the groom walks down the aisle: it’s tacky, not necessary, and just shouldn’t be done. Weddings are a day of happiness and all thoughts and wishes should be positive.

Save “Another One Bites the Dust” for a basketball game or competitive board game — just keep it far, far away from your wedding playlist.
