Christmas Songs warm your heart and remind you of snowman and hot chocolate. That is unless you’re a proper scene kid, and have the numerous Christmas compilations involving your favorite bands in which they talk about how much girls suck, in a Christmasy format. Here’s a bunch of songs just like that to start it off.
“Yule Shoot Your Eye Out” by Fall Out Boy
Since everyone (well, mostly everyone) loves the sound of Fall Out Boy, I figured yet again they deserve a spot on the mix. This song pretty much wraps up every great Christmas carol into one. There’s a parody of the Twelve Days of Christmas, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and I’m Coming Home for Christmas all wrapped around the juicy Fall Out Boy center. The songs we all loved as a kid somehow in some miraculous way compose this great song.
“Forget December” by Something Corporate
This song is nothing short of beautiful. It emphasizes how lonely the holidays can be when that certain someone is with you. We all have great memories we wish we could relive every year, but Something Corporate brings it to reality. We can’t relive what’s already been done. Even on Christmas. “Forget December, it won’t be better than I remember it.”
“I Won’t Be Home for Christmas” by Blink 182
Blink 182, although no longer existent, still kicks some major- shall we say- ass. To the boys of Blink 182, Christmas is supposed to be jolly but it’s not. They seem to be the rougher, tougher, and angstier version of Scrooge or possibly the Grinch. There’s nothing wrong with that though. Christmas can’t be all about good cheer and merriment. You have to throw some chaos in with the mix.
“Chistmassacre” by From First to Last
Screw angst, talk about rage. From First to Last pulls off this amazing song with pure hatred. “Don’t forget your Christmas cheer, ‘cuz Santa’s going to die this year.” Well that’s pleasant. Thank you for the memo. These guys usually put some great music out on the market, but I must say, this is my favorite Christmas song, Pete Wentz.
“My December” by Linkin Park
I’ve always loved this song. It mixes great vocals and lyrics with amazingly fluid chord progression. This song provides great imagery of “snow covered trees.” It’s a feel good, nostalgic song. It only comes on the radio one time a year, and every time I hear it, it’s like it is brand new.
Houston Calls’ “One More Won’t Hurt”
Simple Plan’s “My Christmas List”
New Found Glory’s “The Christmas Song”
Adam Sandler’s “The Chanukah Song” (shut up, it counts)
My Chemical Romance’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You”
