Recessional song? HELP PLEASE

I want a kick ass song to start when we turn to our guests.
Our "funny" song for each other is AC/DC You Shook Me All Night Long, but that has some unappropriate verbage (she told me to *** but I was already there)

Our ceremony music consists of Vitamin String Quartet's remakes of classic rock & 80's rock songs. So I want it to fit in, but I want it to be the actual rock song, not VSQ.

I am having the hardest time finding the "perfect" song. HELP

    Hmm... We played Angels and Airwaves the Adventure. Black Eye'd Peas tonight's going to be a good night would be a good one too. Are you looking for something more 80's butt rock? I will have to think about it. I will ask DH too. Our wedding was pretty 80's hair band heavy, so I am sure I can come up with something. It is hard to find something that isn't coated in sex though. Maybe Bon Jovi Living on a Prayer? Our entry song was Pour Some Sugar on Me. If I think of something really good I promise to page you.

    "Walk This Way," Aerosmith?  The lyrics are dirty if you really listen, but you're walking...this way, right?

    These are all such great suggestions!! Thank you ladies! My Cousin suggested that we start You Shook Me All Night Long @ the corus to aviod the naughiness. What do you think?
    I really like the Poison suggestions- so fun! And Warrant! LOVE it! :)

    I wouldn't do that, just because there is too much risk with the DJ playing it at the wrong part. I like Sweet Child of Mine as a suggestion. I also like Nothing but a good time.

    We walked to "Clocks" by Cold Play - everyone loved it!

    We used the Star Wars Theme Song. It's synonymous with 'epic journey' in my mind.
