For the most part; I love Christmas music of almost any type. But there are some songs that come on the radio's Christmas rotation that I just cannot stand.

For starters; Eartha Kitt's "Santa Baby". It isn't sexy. it isn't cute. It's cloying and annoying.

I will agree with you when it comes to the Madonna cover; I don't mind the original.

I love the Muppets, but "12 Days of Christmas" featuring them and John Denver is pretty bad.

"Happy Holidays/The Holiday Season" by Andy Williams. "It's the holiday season With the whoop-de-do and hickory dock" Um...what? That always bugs me to an inexplicable degree.

(It bugs me less, but in "The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year", he sings that there will be scary ghost stories and tales of the glories of Christmases long ago. Why are there ghost stories at Christmas? Isn't that more of a Halloween thing?)

I had to endure this last year, and I'm sure it'll be compounded this Christmas, but my vote is for "Any Christmas Song I Once Enjoyed That is Now Covered by the Cast of Glee".

I don't know the offical name of it, but the "bells" song. NOT Silver Bells, but "here come the bells. So many bells..."
or whatever the lyrics go. It's too frantic a pace for a holiday song.



Surprised this thread went so far and no mention of GRANDMA GOT RAN OVER BY A REINDEER. Hated that song as a kid, hate it even more now.

The Beatles members make the shittiest Christmas songs.

So This Is Christmas by John Lennon - Total guilt trip filled with Lennon's politics.

Wonderful Christmastime by Paul McCartney - That synthesizer! Ugh.

My wife insists that I'm evil for hating it, but the "Christmas Shoes" song about the kid buying shoes for his dying Mama makes me want to hang myself.

I know he's the "reason for the season" but a song about some kid's Mom going to meet him just doesn't seem very festive. Sue me.

Not even this surprisingly kickass cover by August Burns Red?

If you're down on "Christmas Shoes", you will probably appreciate comedian Patton Oswalt's take on same (warning, NSFW):

I cannot stand the Band Aid song "Feed the world (let them know its christmas time)"

It's really not a good song, and the only christmass references were to remind us we had to give money.
It's very dated and so annoying.

I don't even think it's considered a Christmas song all over the world, but for some reason they always play it on the radio here. Argh!

There's few Christmas that i do like. The worst is Jingle Bell Rock.

I hate Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Not the actual song, but the fact that every time it is sung, people insist on using the stupid ass additional lyrics ("Like a lightbulb!" "Like Monopoly!")

I've hated that shit since I was in elementary school.
