Is there a song (or two) that you WOULD NOT want to hear at your wedding?

I used to DJ weddings, and sometimes I'd have to explain to the bride and groom that "I Will Always Love You", is actually a breakup song.  And then I'd get requests for weird stuff, like the theme to Hawaii 5-0.  lol  I never got a list of things NOT to play, though it turns out some DJ's do.  

The folks at 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%

"YMCA" by Village People – 15.4%

"Electric Boogie (Electric Slide)" by Marcia Griffiths – 12.6%

"Hokey Pokey" – 10.4%

"Wobble  by V.I.C. – 7.1%

"Happy" by Pharrell Williams – 5.5%

"Shout" by Isley Brothers – 5.5%

"Love Shack" by The B-52’s – 4.9%

I always found YMCA was a great song to play, it brought folks out on the floor.  But, we've all got our likes/dislikes.
