The list of all-time worsts:

At funerals the tradition is to play boring opera, some dull classical music, bagpipe music or the occasional ballad. Why is this? Wouldn't the world be a better place if people weren't afraid of blasting out some real music whilst their loved ones are buried. However, there are some times when "crossing the line" becomes clear, and this causes tragedy, horror and cancer. So, for your information, here are the worst 100 songs to play at a funeral.
