10 X-Mas Original Tunes to Light Your Little Yule Log

So this is Christmas and you’re sick of all the usual songs. My gift to you this season is these 10 tunes to give you something a little different. Perhaps you have heard some of them, perhaps you have not, and maybe you will hear a new favorite. You have been a mediocre boy/girl this year, thus this list is for you:

Blink 182 – Won’t be Home for Christmas:  You’ve definitely heard this one before, however that doesn’t make it less special. These guys certainly crafted a fun tune for the holiday season.

Run DMC – Christmas in Hollis: These masters of their craft have a song about Christmas in the neighborhood they grew up in and a fun video to accompany it. Have you heard/seen this? I’m guessing no, and if you did, good for you. 

Wednesday 13 – I’ll Be Buried by Christmas: If all you want for Christmas is a black casket with black velvet interior and oh yeah, a bucket of chicken, then this is the tune for you. High energy, silly, funny, it’s a fun one.

The Pogues – Fairytale of New York: This gem has the flavor of love and hate, which may be the tale of your Christmas. Who knows? I don’t, but, I know this is a good tune with a Christmas theme thrown in there.

The Smashing Pumpkins – Christmastime: This one has that essential Adore era sound from The Smashing Pumpkins a nice relaxing tune for Christmas morning. 

Motionless in White – Santa’s Pissed: Nothing wrong with having a anger fueled Christmas. This tune brings the hate with some speed, breakdowns, and a fuck ton of fucks.

The Vandals – Oi to the World: No, No Doubt didn’t make this song, but they covered it. Enjoy the original Oi for some good punk rock cheer!

Corey Taylor – X-M@$: The Slipknot/Stone Sour front man has been known to do some goof songs in his free time. Don’t expect a full on scream fest, or metal tune, however you will get an upbeat fun jam. Corey Taylor is your drunk uncle if you need one. 

Everclear – Hate You For Christmas: Yeah, yeah, oh yeah, you can guarantee this song has the signature Everclear “Yeah”, but it’s still good for a 90’s alt feel for your Christmas listening.

Dropkick Murphys – The Season’s Upon Us: You enjoy a drink, perhaps a sifter of port at Christmas? Well this one has the theme the Dropkick Murphys are going for; you’re boozing with the family. Those of us from the stereotypical American Irish-Catholic family around this time of year know it all too well.  This song is a fine tune, yet it gets better after a beverage or seven.

Side note: At any point in your life, have you been asked, “Was Santa good to you?”

I have been. And I always found it perverted. Merry Christmas!!!
