Songs NOT to play at a wedding reception!


Every bride and groom wants to hear "their" song at their wedding reception, but a whole lot of newlyweds also have a long list of tunes on their "nope" list.

The folks at FiveThirtyEight.com collected playlists from more than two dozen professional DJs, covering nearly 200 weddings, and found that the most hated song was ... "The Chicken Dance." Nearly one of every four couples put a big red line through that one – and a full 6% nixed every tune by the most-banned artist – Justin Bieber.

Here are the songs people do not want to hear at weddings:

  • "Chicken Dance" – 23.1% ban rate
  • "Cha-Cha Slide" by DJ Casper  – 22.5%
  • "Macarena" by Los Del Rio – 17.6 %
  • "Cupid Shuffle" by Cupid – 16.5%
