PostSubject: Christmas Songs That Don't suck :)   Sat Dec 21, 2013 2:26 pm

I'm always trying to find good Christmas songs that are not the "norm"  Very Happy 

My favorite Christmas album of all time (so far) is The Vandals "Oi to The World" -

heres a few carols off this classic album ...








If you have a little punk in you and like music with a sense of humor you will love The Vandals  cheers 


Does anyone else know of any good Christmas songs that aren't the traditional bs that we are fed every year ?

If so please share them with us What a Face


edit - just found this ...



and this ones for Alex  Wink

Interesting choice James!

I'm afraid mine are popular ones, but not in a traditional style. I really enjoy 'Fairytail of New York' by The Pogues with the late Kirsty McColl, and 'Stop The Cavalry' by Jona Lewie.  Very Happy

And a ton more... awesome album!!!!

I left out some of the raunchier ones (and funny!!!) but these always make me smile... even Mojo Nixon! Laughing

OI TO THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great songs Steve and Jay  cheers 

I don't mind "Traditional" songs at all - I just like to hear them done with a twist  Twisted Evil 

anything that isn't a elevator music Christmas  Very Happy

Here is one I bought on iTunes back in 2008. What a Face 
Since I'm the only one in the house of 5 (and the only one with a pecker) that likes Heavy Metal, it doesn't get played very often.

I like this version of silent Night.. it's probably a bit traditional for most tastes?

James that Slayer 'South of heaven' light show is fu#kin awesome  cheers the evil singing snowman is so cool!
I'm also gonna hunt down those Black label Society crimbo albums.  Zakk Wylde is friggin cool and your right its good to listen to xmas tracks that are a bit alternative/heavy.

skid row: Jingle bells



Iron Maiden: Another rock and roll christmas



Dio/Iommi- god rest ye merry gentlemen:



A bit cheesy, but I've always liked Queen: Thank God Its christmas



The ramones- Merry Christmas (I dont want to fight tonight)
