Looking to take your wedding reception playlist to the next level? Consider adding some good ‘ol rock ‘n’ roll hits to the mix. The Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Clash and more have plenty of dance songs that’ll get your guests moving and grooving (or tapping their feet, at the very least). Bonus: these could be used for a few other magical music moments too, like your recessional or your grand entrance into your reception.
