Default Christmas is coming! Gimme your weirdest Christmas songs!

As I ponder what to do with my journal this Christmas (DON'T be rude!) I thought it might be a cool idea to do a top 10/20 of the strangest, weirdest Christmas songs ever. So if anyone's interested in sending me links I'll choose the top 10 or 20, depending on the level of interest, and feature them in my journal over the final week in Christmas.

To qualify, the song has to be a) not very well known or not known at all b) taking a different look at or putting a different slant on Christmas and c) a bit of fun.

Anyone interested post your ideas here (but don't post videos) and if there's enough of a response I'll pick the top ten or twenty and feature them.

I need all submissions in by December 17, as I'll begin running the list on Dec 18.

Thanks.

The musically weirdest Christmas song I know.

Magnetic Fields - Everything Is One Big Christmas Tree comes to mind. Not the strangest song, but there is a chorus in German, so there's that.

I don't know how weird it is, but "Fuck Christmas" by Tankard is the only Christmas thrash metal song I can think of off the top of my head.

Don't know if it counts as weird, but not something you would usually associate with Christmas, but Jesu - Chrostmas is awesome.
