Worst Songs to Play at a Funeral

The Top Ten
1 Highway to Hell - AC/DC Highway to Hell - AC/DC Cover Art

I grew up in a funeral home. I've accidentally played loud music many times during wakes, for which my father would come upstairs to yell at me; once a week at least. I actually have a sample base to compare data. Yes, this one is the worst, since I've done it. Dad: "Of all the damn songs, you pick that one? They're STILL talking about it, they'll want some money back. They think you did it on purpose... "
Yep. Truth. He almost made me go down and apologize.
This one wins.

Let's face it, the only thing AC/DC sings about is Crime, Sex, and Hell. None of these things should be mentioned at a funeral whatsoever. This applies to all their songs, but this one in particular would be the most tasteless of them all.

A classmate once told me that her phone rang during a funeral. And the ringtone was Highway to Hell! This isn't a good song to play at a Funeral. It's like you're saying that the dead person will go to hell.

This song is by far the worst one to play at a funeral. You're telling the person you're going it he'll.

2 The Best Day Ever - SpongeBob SquarePants The Best Day Ever - SpongeBob SquarePants Cover Art

I can just picture the look on my family's face when the hear this playing at my funeral

Very inappropriate for a funeral

I should've voted for this one.

Should be # 1

3 Stupid Hoe - Nicki Minaj Stupid Hoe - Nicki Minaj Cover Art

Under no circumstances EVER play this song at a funeral. You'll need a funeral after the family are done with you.

Why not play the music video on the side of the coffin while you're at it.

This song shouldn't be played at all much less during a funeral

I don't think you want everybody else dying too

4 Another One Bites the Dust - Queen Another One Bites the Dust - Queen Cover Art

My best friends' grandmother passed away recently, and I was close to all of his family so of course I went. His grandmother loved Queen, and it was literally in her will to have this song played at her funeral.

Haha! The song is really great but as the title suggests, don't ever play it at the funeral.

The last song anyone should play at a funeral. If you like Queen, there are better songs to play.

This is so hilarious. I hope they play this song at my funeral

5 Ha Ha You're Dead! - Green Day Ha Ha You're Dead! - Green Day Cover Art

You're just making fun of the person that's dead

Definitely not something to sing at a funeral.

I think the title explains it's self

The title says it all

6 Celebration - Kool and the Gang Celebration - Kool and the Gang Cover Art

What are we celebrating? Are we happy the person is dead?

If Hitler had a funeral this would be playing

I would play this when some one I know dies. JK

7 Stayin' Alive - The Bee Gees

Just imagining the last Bee Gee standing over the graves of the others singing along to this. Poor bugger.

This would be a great one to play because of the ironic words!

Stayin dead, stayin dead, stayin dead. - Gehenna

Only at Barry Gibb's funeral.

8 Ding Dong the Witch is Dead - Glinda and the Munchkins

Just imagine if this was around during the Salem Witch trials...that would be bad.

9 (Don't Fear) the Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult (Don't Fear) the Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult Cover Art

Don’t fer the reaper Buck!

10 Happy - Pharrell Williams Happy - Pharrell Williams Cover Art

Inappropriate for a funeral. Maybe a for a celebration if someone's back on their feet.

This is a similar one to my other one, Don't Worry Be Happy.

You're happy that person died

That would be so offensive.

The Contenders
11 Anaconda - Nicki Minaj Anaconda - Nicki Minaj Cover Art

12 Hells Bells - AC/DC Hells Bells - AC/DC Cover Art

I mean obviously its bad if it includes anything to do with hell or excitment about persons death...I mean look at Highway to Hell..
