Every week we are featured on Bridal Guide with some of our favorite picks for all types of wedding songs! This week DJ Drew Izm gave his advice on how to incorporate alternative rock the right way! You can see his suggestions below and check out the original feature over here!
Weddings not only showcase the DJ, but the music taste of the couple as well! Guests don’t need to have tattoos and piercings from head-to-toe (but its fine if they do!) to enjoy a fine-crafted rock mix. Maybe your aunt has a secret affinity for Axl Rose, or your nephew is a rising star in Guitar Hero. Whatever the case, you want your wedding to rock! Not like mom and dad used to though, because your night shouldn’t be accompanied by moldy oldies.
Alternative rock has been around for decades now. Teenagers are still getting into bands that were just starting to break out in the ’90s. Groups like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, and Foo Fighters are still making waves in the industry today. If your lifestyle has an edge, you can reflect that in your wedding without scaring your grandparents away or scarring the innocent youth in attendance.
Here are some alt-rock songs from back-in-the-day to more modern that everyone can get into during the party, slow dances, or even cocktail hour!
