Five Christmas Jams that Rip - By Chris Cote




Five Christmas Jams That Rip
By Chris Cote


By mid-December, I’ve about had it with Christmas music. I could be wrong, but I think are only 15 Christmas classics that have been getting regurgitated and befouled by pop singers and TV talent show cast offs. And don’t get me started on “hard rocking Christmas compilations”—I don’t need to hear Nickelback do a cock-rock cover of “Silver Bells”—vomit. But wait, I’m not all bah humbug and Grinched-out. There are a few Christmas tunes actually rip, oh, and listening Clay Aiken’s Christmas album is guaranteed to cause your Christmas tree to catch fire and burn all your presents into satanic dust … just saying’.


5. Blink 182 “I Won’t Be Home For Christmas”


Any Christmas song that speaks of the joys of chasing Christmas Carolers with a baseball bat and then being having your “package unwrapped” in a prison cell sounds good to me!



4. The Ramones “Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight)”


This is a slow jam done Ramones style, and if you put this song on, under the mistletoe, with that special someone—I guarantee you’ll be getting more than a kiss.



3. Julian Casablancas “I Wish It Was Christmas Today”


This Christmas jam by the main man from The Strokes is a dancey, fun, and yes, ripping synth-laden jumper that will get your Christmas party rocking harder than a yule log.



2. The Waitresses “Christmas Wrapping”


You may know The Waitresses for their super hit in the early 80s, “I Know What Boys Want”. Well, they obviously got my letter, cause all I asked for Christmas in 1981 was a funky bass line, a hype drum beat, a sexy sax track, and a hot girl rapping about Christmas all in one song. This song will grab your party by the jingle bells and twist.



1. Run DMC “Christmas Is Hollis”


The kings of hip-hop make the king of all Christmas jams! If you have a Christmas party and don’t play this song, expect a riot of elves destroying your house and shitting on your Christmas tree.
