Modern rock music has become a very popular choice for first wedding dance songs. While country is also popular, some couples find that it simply does not suit their tastes. If you are looking for a beautiful and also unique modern rock wedding song for your first dance, here are some options to consider.
“Everything” – Lifehouse
Though many are familiar with “You and Me,” few have actually heard this wedding song by Lifehouse. It has a very slow melody, which is perfect for a first dance. Lifehouse sing, “You are the light, that’s leading me/ To the place, where I’ll find peace…again.”
“I’d Come For You” – Nickelback
While “Never Gonna Be Alone” is this band’s most popular wedding song, some may find that this is a better choice for them. While some of the lyrics are about a rocky relationship, the chorus says, “And I’d fight for you/ I’d lie, it’s true/ Give my life for you/ You know I’d always come for you.”
“Keep Holding On” – Avril Lavigne
Although this is a somewhat more popular song, it is not often used for a first wedding dance. This song is about always being there for that special person. It has a beautiful melody, which makes it an appropriate choice for a first wedding dance.
“Tangled Up in You” – Staind
“All I Want” is a more popular wedding song by Staind, but the lyrics and melody to this song are actually a lot more beautiful. Even if you don’t like Staind, you might like this song. Aaron Lewis of Staind sings, “You’re the fire that warms me when I’m cold/ You’re the hand I have to hold as I grow old/ You’re the shore when I am lost at sea.”
“You & Me” – Dave Matthews Band
For a somewhat more upbeat wedding song, this can be a good choice. Dave Matthews sings about all of the things that he and his love will do together as a couple, like teaching their kids to fly. He says that together, they can do anything. It can be a beautiful modern rock song to consider.
“Your Guardian Angel” – The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
This is a somewhat more popular wedding song among couples who love modern rock. The lyrics and melody of this song make it a beautiful choice.
