Default Top 10 Best Rock Christmas Songs

Christmas is coming, why not a list of rock songs about Christmas?

Here is my TOP 10:

10 – ‘Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)’ – (Darlene Love / 1963)
9 – ‘Christmas All Over Again’ – (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers / 1992)
8 – ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ – (Bruce Springsteen / 1975)
7 – ‘Little Saint Nick’ – (The Beach Boys / 1963)
6 – ’2.000 Miles’ – (The Pretenders / 1984)
5 – ‘Father Christmas’ – (The Kinks / 1977)
4 – ‘I Believe in Father Christmas’ – (Emerson, Lake & Palmer / 1974)
3 – ‘Christmas Wrapping’ – (The Waitresses / 1981)
2 – ‘Run Rudolph Run’ – (Chuck Berry / 1958)
1 – ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’ – (Yoko The Plastic Ono Band / 1971, US / 1972, UK)



Tell me about what records you’re planning to spin on this Christmas season.

I know I'll be in the minority here but it's shit imo. I hate it. Two Oirish people singing about a pissed up argument. Depressing as fuck.


The Darkness - Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End) (Official Video) - YouTube



Stupid as fuck & catchy.

it was, "Bell End", "Ring Piece", and "Come on kids", that they had a bet on, getting away with. And they did it.
Oh I like that Bo Selecta one as well. And Slade.

I love Fairytale of New York, but there are some covers out there that rock it up a bit and make it a bit less Irish-sounding. Not that I have anything against the Irish, it's just their music is usually ****.
