Haha.. sounds like my FH!  He ONLY listens to alternative rock, while I listen to virtually everything.  Luckily, he actually brought up the point that the music played is really for your guests to enjoy and dance to.. not really all about the couple’s choices.  You can tell your man that these suggestions you offered up are more “dance friendly”.. and meanwhile, you can appease him by playing his choices while the courses are being served… or meeting/greeting your guests.. or cutting of the cake?

@futuremrsndl:  Ask him if he’d be open to some cover versions that are more dance-able.  Try to find some songs that are things he likes that are universally liked – even if it’s rock, if it’s something everyone loves to sing along with, people will still dance to it.

I would remind him that the hallmark of a fun reception is a full dance floor, and there’s a lot of metal and classic rock that simply isn’t danceable for most people.

I appreciate that he wants to reflect his tastes in the wedding, but a good host (and that’s what you are during your reception–hosts) plans with the enjoyment of their guests in mind.  

To sulk about it when you’re trying to work with him seems rather juvenille.
