A bachelor party is stereotypically portrayed as a wild night filled with strippers and lots of alcohol, but this event is really about celebrating your upcoming wedding with your closest friends. Bachelor parties can take the shape of bar-hopping in your city, attending a sports game of choice, hosting a backyard barbecue, or taking a trip to a faraway destination. Regardless of your party plans, you will definitely need a personalized Spotify playlist to listen to on your journey to the chosen location, while getting ready for a night out, or during the festivities. Read on to gather bachelor party song ideas to add to your list.
