List Rules Vote up your favorite metal songs to play at a wedding reception.

If you’re looking for some great metal songs for weddings, this list should prove quite helpful. Metal for weddings isn’t always a perfect fit – but there are more songs than you think that are appropriate.

When it comes to the best metal music or hard rock songs for weddings, consider how they’ll be used. If you’re walking down the aisle, you might want to consider a softer metal song. Or, if you have time, think of your favorite metal songs and see if there are any instrumental versions floating around out there.

This list of metal songs to play at a wedding include some of the obvious (and likely the most popular choices), like “Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica, “This Love” by Pantera, “Love Me Forever” by Motorhead, and “I’ll Be There” by Megadeth.

Also, if you can’t figure out a way to work in good metal music for the wedding itself, you can always use most of these tunes as metal wedding reception songs. Many of them are appropriate for a first dance.

Vote for your top choices for the best metal songs to play at weddings, and add your own choices, too. This way, we’ll have a great metal wedding playlist.
