Bad Music Sunday: Xmas Carols


Trailing behind Christmas time like a vestigial tail is all that Christmas music. Yes, Bill O'Reilly, there is a war on Christmas (and not just by shilling Factor Gear) it's the multitude of musical sins perpetrated in commerce's, I mean the Lord's, name.

But, what's kinda great about Christmas music too is that it pretty much always falls into some categories.

There's the reworked classic:

Hall & Oates - Jingle Bell Rock

There's the Bon Jovi songs:

Bon Jovi - Back Door Santa
Unofficial video, but I don't think there is one.

Bon Jovi - I Wish Everyday Could Be Christmas

Jon Bon Jovi - R2D2, We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Of course, novelty songs:

The Jingle Cats - White Christmas
Yes, my mom has this CD. She plays it every year, and it freaks out the family Siamese cat, Lucy, every year, too.

Max Headroom - Merry Christmas Santa Claus

And there's the sentimental dreck:

Wham! - Last Christmas

Band Aid - Do They Know It's Christmas
I already took a shot at this song before, but never under the BMS banner, so here it is.

And, of course the Insane Clown Posse/murder themed Christmas tunes:

Insane Clown Posse - Red Christmas

Insane Clown Posse - Santa Claus is a Fat Bitch

The Killers - Don't Shoot Me Santa
Maybe this one isn't that bad.

viva el navidad!

Everyone should wonder about the "backdoor" Xmas song by Bon Jovi. I hate that so called singer.
