Worst Songs to Play at a Funeral

The Top Ten

Highway to Hell - AC/DC

This is also the worst song to play on a highway *cough cough Final Destination 2*

I want this played at MY funeral! Thanks for the idea. :-)

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.

If you are religious and you play this song you are going to HELL!

Stupid Hoe - Nicki Minaj

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

What a song to play at a funeral.

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

Everyone else will die

The Best Day Ever - SpongeBob SquarePants

I'll play it at Bieber's funeral.

For hitler, trump, osama, stalin, kim jong-un, and isis member it's the perfect song to play at a funeral

Not Trump he's not that bad and what bad things did Justin Bieber do except comment extremely minor crimes? - venomouskillingmachine

It's pretty funny that people are listing out names for which this song should be played for.

I'll play this at Kim Jong Un's funeral.

Another One Bites the Dust - Queen

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

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.

Just the base line playing low in the background...

Ha Ha You're Dead! - Green Day

...who in their right mind would play this? Hitler? - Gehenna

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

Defiantly not something to sing at a funeral.

This is in my funeral playlist

Celebration - Kool and the Gang

This song is actually quite appropriate, it's calling on us to celebrate the good life of the deceased person.

If Hitler had a funeral this would be playing

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

If Justin Bieber have a funeral, this is a great song to play.

Stayin' Alive - The Bee Gees

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

Would be Ironic yet actually true because everyone attending the funeral would be Stayin’ Alive

Stayin dead, stayin dead, stayin dead. - Gehenna

This will be truly ironic

Happy - Pharrell Williams

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

That would be so offensive.

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

You're happy that person died

Ding Dong the Witch is Dead - Glinda and the Munchkins

Don't play this... Just don't...

If you played this, then prepare to get killed while your at it. - Gehenna

Everyone else will die!

Who in the right mind would play this

Hells Bells - AC/DC

Almost as bad as highway to hell in terms of worst funeral songs AC/DC is a good band but don't play their songs at funerals

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..

We played hells bells and higway to hell and its was fantastic..the person was a acdc fanatic. All dressed in acdc clothes. Whats wrong with you people...play what the person loved

Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead

Only if it's played at Trump's funeral

Best Day of My Life - American Authors


Watch Me (Whip / Nae Nae) - Silento

If this was played at a funeral it would be disrespectful to the dead

A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold

I want this at my funeral, though.

Sweet Victory - David Glen Eisley

The Stroke - Billy Squier
Thriller - Michael Jackson

It will be bad, because the dead person will rise from the grave and attack the living. It's still a good song though. - Gehenna

Hell Awaits - Slayer
Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO

That would be so stupid and quite offensive

Try playing the music video on the side of the coffin

At a funeral?

Sex Bomb - Tom Jones

Funny story regarding this. A local church used to let you pick what songs you want at a funeral but because somebody picked this song they don't allow you to choose anymore.

I've never heard this song, but the title. Oh, the title.

The Final Countdown - Europe
