Classic Rock Love Songs

The Ultimate Classic-Rock Wedding Playlist

Classic rock might not be the first genre that comes to mind when you think of wedding music, but that's a damn shame. The late '60s, '70s, and very early '80s produced some seriously great songs that belong on any reception playlist: romantic ballads, dad-rock classics, and sexy guitar-heavy songs that will turn the dance floor up to 11.

This 40-song playlist includes both classic favorites and lesser-known tracks that will strike a chord with you and/or your multigenerational guest list, with The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers, T. Rex, and many more bands who know how to rock. Who knows? You might discover a new favorite song on the list. Or, better yet, you might discover that your squarest aunt has a secret affinity for Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love." This mix truly has something for everyone.
