I was born and raised over a funeral home. I was in several bands that rehearsed there (excellent acoustics in the viewing room). I'm THE expert in this. CC is the worst one, though I'm not a fan in general. As a kid, I'd play music, forgetting there was a wake going on, so I actually have a sample base to compare. The only counter-argument might be that, since the band's so bad, people might forget that they just lost a friend. The death might not seem so bad by comparison... So now I'm not so sure.
Songs about raping the dead isn't good for a funeral.
