I don’t know. I always hated Jingle Bell Rock. Always found it tacky and I remember hearing it a lot when I was forced to do ice skating lessons as a kid which I hated since I got the worst foot blisters. Grandma Got Ran Over By a Reindeer. Just stupid and the animated special to match it is even worse. My actual favorites are the old stuff as done by people like Sinatra, Crosby, and others but I do admit to liking the Pogues’ Fairytale of New York. Not your typical Christmas song I admit since it’s not happy but Shane Mcgowan and Kristy MacColl sang it quite well.

Can there truly be a bad Christmas song?

The Bieber thing is pretty obnoxious though.

Most of these pieces suffer from the same basic problem - trying to take an old standard and “modernize” it, usually with electronic help, or by simply forcing the old song into the fad of the day.

If you’re looking for WORST Christ songs ever, you’ve come to the right place… no decade or region has a corner on poor taste, kitsch, smarm, or just bad music:

Pomplamoose sounds as droning as Lorde does.

Though, I guarantee the members of it are much nicer than Lorde is. I shared a serious rant about Lorde with my mom. I loathe her.

Mannheim Steamroller’s light show reminds me of nothing so much as the ghastly kaleidoscope of flashing, strobing, searing, multicolored vision and sanity destroying emergency vehicle lights one would find at an especially bad chain reaction traffic accident.

The way I look at it, I can dig a Christmas song where somebody puts some real effort into it. My perfect example would be the Mariah Carey song “All I Want for Christmas”. She put a lot of work and a lot of her talent into it. On the other hand, that dreadful duet with Justing Bieber (same song) is just stomach turning. They probably had that thing done by lunch.

So sickeningly saccharine, it makes Christmas Shoes seem like something from a Scandinavian thrash metal band.

“Rum Pa Pum Pum” is one of the suckiest Christmas songs EVER and there are so many craptastic covers it was hard to choose just one, so I selected Justin Bieber and Hippie Drum Circle as the two worst. I am sure that there are other covers just as bad.

The songs that get played over and over and over at the mall are not really that bad in and of themselves, but it’s just the CONSTANT REPETITION OVER AND OVER AND OVER that makes them so awful.

In this category are Barbra Streisand’s “Home For Christmas” (GD is that song over yet? It’s been going on for like twelve hours).

Paul McCartney’s song is just crap. TOTAL CRAP. He is a talented songwriter, he could have made something better, but he didn’t.

“Jingle Bells” scat style, I just can’t even. STOP THAT SHIT. Diana Krall specializes in this ear-bleeding crap.

I forgot: “HERE COMES SANTA, HERE COMES SANTA, DOWN SANTA CLAUS LANE.”

Here’s the antidote to cloying and sappy. Good taste, however, not included.

Went to see John Waters’ Christmas show last year. That is one strange person.

Funny, but weeeeiiiird.
