Default Alternative Christmas songs.

Yeeeeeaaaah I am doing it...its that time of year were we are sick to forking death with the same Christmas songs. SOME OF US FOR THE NEXT 20 DAYS WILL HAVE THE SAME 10 CHRISTMAS SONGS PLAYED OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND................you get the idea.

So how about we drown out or even...SUPPLANT!!! those songs with alternative songs that might keep the spirit yet actually bring actual joy to you.


For me it is one of the early mainstream raps...cos well.....racism, while it may be inaccurate to say this is one of the reasons why we have mainstream rap today (a bit inaccurate to say Blondies Rapture also) yet we can legitimately say its an early mainstream rap....same as Blondies Rapture.

I have been listening to Christmas Wrapping all year since I found out this song last Christmas.

And to balance it out...MOOOOREE CHRISTMAS RAPPING! Which is this could be the first mainstream performance from a black rapper if not again an early mainstream rap.

This is going well, we have Rap and Jazz and something cos I cannot find a place to listen to Brain Wilson as Last FM does not want to work.....like ever for me.

The Wildhearts Geordie in Wonderland...dunno how to categorise this as Wildhearts is usually super rocky.


I can however categorise this as Christmas Ska.



ummmmm folks....I think I went too far.... soooooo I have No Doubt...doing a Ska punk Christmas song in India...


OK NOPE I HAVE GONE WAAAAY TO FAR NOW. Japanese Ska Punk singing Jingle bells.



uuuuugggghh I hate myself this was a terrible idea.... Japanese Anime Christmas song..... by the way this is a giant mecha robots in space serise. I need to stop...yet I am going to be singing along with this anyways.

This is a cover of an SNL skit by Julian Casablancas of Strokes fame.

Your welcome, I heard it on a car commercial two years ago and now it gets played all the time. Especially Christmas time.

Crucial Youth changed their name to Crucial Yule for a christmas EP at the end of the 80's. A bold move for a youth crew hardcore band... but Crucial Youth has never been the usual super-serious hardcore band anyway.

I like their cover of 'Crucified (For Your Sins)' ( the skinhead anthem) called 'Xmas Time For The Skins' (I guess they just HAD to put an X in the title of the song) so I share it here :




The Side-A of this 7" is 'Santa Claus Is Coming (and You're On His List)' and is almost as silly as this cover.
