    Anyone knowing the backstory to this song will be really confused with how it fits at all in a wedding. Nikki Sixx wrote it after he OD’d and was recissiutated after being legally dead for like 5 minutes (he was actually declared dead), and that boy was such a hot mess back then that he’s probably the last thing I’d want on guests’ minds during my wedding reception. I think there are probably enough people who know this story that they might say something that clues in the other guests.

    As both my SO and I are huge Crue-heads, I would say to go for it! We plan on including at least one of their songs as well. Your wedding is about the two of you and should make a statement about both of your personalities. I doubt that the Catholic side will know the band, Nikki’s story nor will they make the connection if they even do hear the lyrics. I’m sure everyone will be too wrapped up in the moment to even notice anyway. Plus, it’s not like it’s “Shout at the Devil” or anything.

    If you’re feeling too worried about it, maybe you can use one of their ballads instead. “Without you” definitely fits the theme of a wedding. “Home Sweet Home” could also work, however still has quite a few drug references.

    Whatever you choose, good luck on your special day! It’s going to be fabulous. Laughing

    If you don’t like the first line, have your DJ cue it for the middle of the song, or wherever you want it to start…….

    We walked into a dance remix of the Imperial March from Star Wars. Wedding appropriate? Maybe not, but it was awesome!

    Love that song… so YES! Both SO and I are into music that isn’t weddingy so when we get married picking the music will be so fun.

    I’d definitely go for it, no one will hear the words, especially the first line when people are screaming and clapping for your entrance. The song has a good beat and will get people cheering, I don’t think they’ll be thinking about the meaning behind the song, espcially since most don’t know about it. Our wedding will have metal songs thrown in it here and there, and it’s definitely a challenge since our families are both catholic, but remember, it’s your day and they’ll still love you regardless of your song choices (as long as you’re not rocking out to anything completely vulgar or sexual, like most of the Dr. Feelgood album haha).
