Ultimate Bachelor Party Music Playlist – Best Bachelor Party Songs
With wedding season quickly approaching, couples everywhere are planning for their perfect day; they will exchange vows, present a ring, and celebrate with friends and family before whisking away on their honeymoon. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here, but instead take a look at the opportunity to send your buddy off into marital bliss the right way. In France, the bachelor party is called “enterrement de vie de garçon”, which literally means “burial/funeral of the life as a bachelor”. In America, the bachelor party is known as the final opportunity to engage in activities of which their partner may not approve. This often includes spending time with their buddies while engaging in gambling, drinking, and most importantly strippers. It’s a rite of passage from bachelorhood into a more responsible marital life. The task of organizing a bachelor party is often traditionally assigned to a male sibling of the bachelor or to the best man. To make the task easier, I have put together a list of song suggestions sure to make this event a night to remember. For starters, you will not find any “YMCA” or “Macarena” here, because, of course, we are not throwing the Bachelorette
“Black Betty” – Ram Jam
A contemporary reference for a prostitute, a prison bullwhip, or the “paddywagon”; all essentials for a good bachelor party.
“Welcome To The Jungle” – Guns N Roses
The official anthem for anyone about to take the plunge. “You’re in the Jungle now baby.”
“Fight For Your Right” – The Beastie Boys
Something you will be doing from here on out.
“Girls Girls Girls” – Motley Crue
Something you will not see anymore, in the plural sense anyway.
“Crazy Bitch” – Buckcherry
A fine song for reminiscing with your newly divorced friends who jumped into marriage too quickly based on only the sex.
“No Sex” – Chris Rock
“No matter what a stripper tells you, there is no sex in the champagne room.”
“Highway to Hell” – AC/DC
The ultimate song to spawn a full on testosterone fueled freestyle karaoke party after many drinks.
“Pour Some Sugar On Me” – Def Leppard
If strippers had a national anthem, this would be it.
“Lap dance” – N.E.R.D.
The obvious choice for getting your money’s worth from a private dance, unless of course you can coax the DJ into spinning the 15 minute classic rock opus “Inna-Gadda-Da-Vida”.
“Cherry Pie” – Warrant
Mad TV had the right idea when they used it for a Dancing With The Stars parody called “Lap Dancing With The Stars.”
“Candy Shop” – The Dan Band
Recently featured in The Hangover, The Dan Band make this mid tempo sex infused hit sound like it should have been released by a lounge singer in the 70s.
“Nookie” – Limp Bizkit
About Fred Durst’s past girlfriend, who used him for his money, and cheated on him with his friends, yet he continued to stay with her despite the emotional distress this caused. He did it all for the…well, you get it.
Updated Bonus Track!
“Porn Star Dancing” – My Darkest Days – Finally another addition from 2010 worthy of your Bachelor Party. This is the Canadian version of the National Anthem for strippers.
