I remember when I worked in a shop and management decided to play Christmas music from the beginning of November up till New Years Eve.

Sadly they only had 2 Christmas albums and I had to listen to these albums anything from 8 to 13 hours a day 6 days a week for 2 months.

And Frosty the f*cking Snowman was on both albums meaning I heard it round about every 30 minutes throughout that whole 2 months.

And no i'm not posting a f*cking youtube video of it.

I'm not sure how this relates to the song I posted as it is neither traditional nor contemporary nor, for that matter, even really a Christmas song.

Lol at those crappy metal bands thinking they're all alternative because they release poor music with the word 'Christmas' in the title used in a derogatory manner.
Think I'd rather listen to Cliff Richard.

To answer the original post, I'd have to go with The Pouges - Fairytale of New York.

Give me all the arguments about it not being a 'Christmas song' but fact is year after year it gets rolled out and it physically drains me with its sheer awfulness.
Also, you're not making some kind of anti-commercialism stand by listening to it, you're just putting yourself under unnecessary suffering.

Seriously I can relate to this. On that note, I will also not post YouTubes of a lot of the songs I can not stand during the season, including Celine Dion's annoying cover John Lennon's classic.

"Metal bands" plural? I've only seen one metal band posted in this thread so far.

This seriously is among the most annoying X-Mas blasts of wind ever. Paul and Synth with some of the most cliche lyrics committed to such a song. There have been worse, but this was possibly the very first holiday song I detested.

I couldn't disagree with you more. I've been overexposed to probably hundreds of Christmas songs, just like everyone else, and the only one I would say I 'like' is The Pogues.

Everything else can fuck off.
