Best and Worst Alternative Christmas Songs

Each year there is an influx of Christmas singles released, most looking to make a quick profit or kick start a career which has long been dwindling. But what if you don’t want to listen to the same old Christmas songs over and over again? Here is a list of the good, the bad and the ugly Christmas rock tracks which may tickle your fancy…

The Good

Blink-182 I won’t Be Home For Christmas

Corey Taylor X-M@$

The Vandals Oi to the World

MxPx Christmas Night of Zombies

New Found GloryThe Christmas Song

A Day To RememberRight Where You Want Me To Be

The Bad

Simple PlanMy Christmas List

Motionless in WhiteSanta’s Pissed

Fall Out BoyYule Shoot Your Eye Out

The Academy Is… – Winter Passing

The Covers

My Chemical RomanceAll I Want For Christmas is You (Mariah Carey Cover)

No Use For a NameFairytale of New York (The Pogues cover)

The Almost Little Drummer Boy

August Burns RedCarol of the Bells

What do Live and Loud Rock think should be Christmas No.1 this year I hear you cry?

Unsurprisingly the X-Factor single will not be my purchase of choice this Christmas, although neither will Nirvana’s classic Smells Like Teen Spirit.

No, the only real choice is to buy Sleigh Ride by The Wurzels! Although an outsider, it is by far the best Christmas song Live and Loud Rock have heard in quite some time. Enjoy.

    • I agree that at one point in their career the band were great, Take This To Your Grave definitely being their high point. This Christmas single just never did it for me, and as I say in the introduction it is a list of tracks which may tickle your fancy, the good and bad divide is just my opinion. Out of interest, what would you say is the best alternative Christmas single?
