Default Christmas covers

I am making an alternative Christmas CD. As in alternative I mean fairly modern, like not Sinatra or Amy Grant or whatever.

Please direct me to modern covers, or even originals, from any genre that relate to christmas. I can only find a few on my own.
So here's to living life miserable.
And here's to all the lonely stories that I've told.
Maybe drinking wine will validate my sorrow.
Every man needs a muse and mine could be the bottle.

The Darkness - Christmas Time (Don't Let the Bells End)
John Lennon - Happy Christmas (always a classic)
Mike - All I Want for Christmas is a Girlfriend
Eagles - Please Come Home for Christmas
Dave Matthews Band - Christmas Song
Jimmy Buffett - Mele Kelikimaka
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - Christmas All Over Again
Queen - Thank God it's Christmas
Big Star - Jesus Christ
Alabama - Christmas in Dixie
Elvis Presley - Blue Christmas
Paul McCartney - Wonderful Christmastime
Street Drum Corps - Happy Christmas (War is Over)
Wham! - Last Christmas
Lou Monte - Dominic the Italian Christmas Donkey

^^ That right there is a badass list. I can help find those if you need.

Even though you want fairly modern I'm going to recommend A Christmas Gift for You From Phil Spector. That is such a classic album.
