It just wouldn’t be Christmas without Christmas songs. But for this particular post, I’m gonna skip over the usual fare by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Mariah Carey and Boys II Men and explore the alternative side of Christmas music.
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen – Ronnie James Dio
Don’t Shoot Me Santa – The Killers
Christmas Is Cancelled – The Long Blondes
Santa Claus Goes Straight To The Ghetto – Death Row Recording Artists (Snoop Doggy Dogg, Dat Nigga Daz, Tray Dee, Bad Azz & Nate Dogg)
No Presents for Christmas – King Diamond
Christmas Card From A Hooker In Minneapolis – Neko Case
Run Rudolph Run – Lemmy Kilmister & Friends
Oh Holy Night – Halford (yeah, the guy from Judas Priest)
Stille Nacht /Silent Night (German) – Manowar
Rock n Roll Santa – Yo La Tengo
Merry Christmas to all!
