Best Alternative Christmas Songs?

Posted: December 17, 2012 in Punk rock/Metal

So, incase you’re wondering, no I did not die. Over the past few weeks the economy has had its way with me and I have become somewhat oblivious to the highest blog views we have ever had! ……..Apologies my friends

Anyway, on with the post. If someone asked me, I would deny my incredulous fascination with christmas songs. However, my therapist has told me that being honest with complete strangers is the first step to being a happier person and I must say the results are… interesting.

To me, theres nothing more hilarious than a cheesy christmas jingle, what’s even funnier is the attempt by some of our current heroes to write anything that resembles a festive anthem. The stars of pop-rock have done their best, to bring you a new take on the cliche that is ‘white christmas’ type music. Here are some of my favourites.

Blink 182 – Won’t be home for Christmas: A musical list of all the things we hate about christmas with a jaunty, racy and perky soundtrack.

Fall Out Boy – Yule shoot your eyes out: A wonderfully bitter carol about a relationship gone sour with a lovely acoustic guitar and sleigh bell accompaniment.

The Killers – Dont shoot me santa: A song that challenges us to wonder, “What happens when you get on the naughty list?”

My Chemical Romance – All I want for Christmas is you: A wonderful, punchy and edgy cover of Mariah Carey’s fluffy heartwarming jingle. With an exhilarating melody of ‘jagged’ electric guitars, head thrashing drums and ground breaking bass rhythms. My favourite by far.

Let me know what you think,

Roseby.
