The Top Ten

1
Mistletoe
Why isn't this the worst...
Not the best song! Definitely it got annoying I just wanted to bash my head in the wall and die after hearing it 6 billion ' times on the radio!
THis is the worst song not just because it's justin bieber but because it's not catchy, and it's just generic pop crap.

2Christmas Shoes
A horrible song. It takes a horrible, misguided meaning from an already dark tone that rings to the depressing tune of an "inspirational" e-mail your family members send you around the holidays. The song is about, yes, a boy's mother who is dying for certain reasons and he decides to buy his mother some Christmas Shoes presumably the night that she will die.

This song would have been fine if it carried along the message that Christmas is the time to be together as a family. It shouldn't carry the focus of the importance of purchasing material goods in the name of pleasing your mother who, I imagine, would probably prefer you being by her side in her dying moments. I wouldn't mind if the song just ended with "I put the money down, he said 'thanks' and walked away", but instead the message carries on into a dark, evil moral that only Veggietales could churn out while in a bad mood.

"I knew that God had sent that little boy to remind me what Christmas is all about". That is why this song is up on this list, because of the horrible message the man takes from such a horrible tragedy.

There is nothing like having GOD sacrifice an innocent woman in order for you to understand the meaning of Christmas. What was the meaning he took from it, exactly?

I love Christmas, it's my favorite time of the year, and I love buying gifts for my family and friends. But material exchanges should not, in any sense of the word, define Christmas as a whole. This, simply put, makes it one of the worst Christmas songs ever recorded and brought (or dragged) out to the Christmas Commerce Machine.
I do not know how such a song can end up on here, the song is about a boys mom who is dying, he wanted to get her a pair of shoes so she can be happy! Yet he is too poor to afford them so the man behind the boy buys it for him! This song teaches us what Christmas is about, giving. Also to those who say that christmas songs aren't supposed to be depressing forget that for some people christmas is depressing. The lyrics, meaning, and singers (depends on which version) make this without a doubt one of the BEST christmas songs out there.
You poor, poor, people.
This song is so sad. I can't listen to the radio at Christmas time because I'm afraid this song will come on because Christmas songs shouldn't make you cry! They should make you happy! I get that it explains giving and everything but I don't want to cry at Christmas because Christmas should be about celebrating the wonderful birth of Christ which is not sad or depressing AT ALL! This song is too sad to be good. I totally agree with this choice!

3Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer
This song is disrespectful to elders, kind of depressing, and way too catchy!
It's about a grandma dying and they say she was drunk it's so sad I HATE THIS SONG!
Rude, pointless and stupid... This song has it all... I wouldn't play this song if someone paid me too...

4I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
Shut up awesome song an amazing classic
What! THIS SONG IS SOMEHOW STUPIDER THAN SANTA BABY! SERIOUSLY, I CAN'T STAND THIS SONG ANY MORE THAN I CAN STAND HAVING A DEFIBRILLATOR USED ON MY WIENER!
This gets played over the radio all the time at work, how it even qualifies as a Christmas song is beyond me.

5Please, Daddy (Don't Get Drunk This Christmas)
I've never heard of this song, but it sounds terrible. And you know that if it says daddy, it's most likely either sung by or directed to young people.
Dear God what was that?
Terrible, terrible song with terrible, terrible lyrics!

6All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth
Can't listen to it. Nice when you're young. And people who don't vote for this still need their front teeth.
The kid talking is super annoying

That song is kinda annoying.

7Wonderful Christmastime
Seriously a horrible, horrible song all together. Considering the hit machine that McCartney and the Beatles were, this is a sad inclusion in their career. The incessant mind numbing keyboard is the WORST sounding piano EVER! And the delay in the chorus just doubles the sickening experience. That setting should be removed from every keyboard to ensure musical torture like this is never produced again.
I hate, hate hate this juvenile sing song piece of crap. Did He actually write this tripe? They play it constantly and it make me physically Ill every time I hear it. Who in the world would buy this song?
"I heard this song today, oh boy..." Paul McCartney should be smacked in the face with a half-frozen halibut for producing this abject piece of ear worm dreck.

8Santa Baby
This song is very disturbing. It's also REALLY annoying. Really, it just makes me sick.
Whenever someone asks you to do a musical preformance of this, say no! I'd bet a hundred bucks (no not really) that you'd be a hundred percent embarassed. At least all I want for Christmas is my two front teeth and grandma got ran over by a reindeer is cute. Anyways I wouldn't want to do with this.
Worst Christmas song ever! The dance team at my old High School used to dance around in spandex w/ santa hats to this tune. Traumatic memories.

10Jingle Bell Rock
Wha? This song is a Christmas Classic!
Jingle bell rock is way better than all these songs when you hear it in Christmas.
Any song with rock in it? What about Jailhouse Rock, Detroit Rock city, I Am a Rock, Rock and roll, I Love Rock and roll, Let there be rock, Mambo Rock, Rock N Roll All Nite, Rock around The clock, Rock and roll music, Rock A Billy, and God gave rock and roll to you? Yeah That's What I Thought...

12All I Want for Christmas Is You
I so loved this at one time. Now I daren't put my radio on at the beginning of December in case this is lurking around, waiting for me..

Britgirl

Once upon a time in my life, I liked this song, until I learned to drive and listened to the radio...
It's so annoying because in Christmas on the radio this song is like 24/7 and it totally gets on my nerves! There are so many great songs to listen to in Christmas and this song is overrated in my opinion.

13Christmas Tree - Lady Gaga
This song is awful and just plain stupid. I don't think that anyone was asking for a song about sex using Christmas-themed innuendos.
I like lady gaga, but this is the most terrible Christmas song ever.

16Little Drummer Boy
Can you imagine a young girl after a terrible journey and a difficult unassisted birth finally gets the baby to sleep and some snotty nosed brat starts playing the drum. Stupid stupid song

Never got this. Hated it for over 50 years.

17Last Christmas
Actually, I do think this is a nice Christmas song to listen to! She was with one boyfriend found a nicer man in her life and left her boyfriend for a PERFECT Christmas to be with someone who loved her more and she'd be happier all round. If you can imagine being together but not in love and being with someone and happy and it (Christmas) is the season to be jolly. So, listen to the words while imagining being in an unhappy RELATIONSHIP. and you meet a very nice person -he/she makes you happy -would that not make your Christmas while the other person's HEART!
Who could possibly like this song? "Last Christmas I gave you my heart / But the very next day you gave it away / This year to save me from tears / I'll give it to someone special..." Where to begin? Whiny topic, crappy rhymes, dippy tune, moronic message. "Oh, someone SPECIAL! That's what I've been doing wrong! " Dude, let me get this straight. Someone gave YOUR heart to a third party without permission? And you think you still have one to give again this year? What kind of crazy organ donor clinic do you run?
Most annoying Christmas song I've ever heard.

If this was the best Christmas song list, this should be first. You know nothing, user or visitor who placed this here

Its really annoying after a while!
Don't get me wrong, I love the animated special of this song
But I will admit, this song just gets really annoying at times and especially with those stupid fillers kids put into the song that just sounds ridiculous
Oi, all I can say is I love the song as much as the next person; but I don't wanna hear it over a hundred trillion times!

20Santa Claus Has Got the Aids This Year
The song is quite horrific, you cain't hardly hear it, and the worst voice imaginable - he is so drudgy, the bass and melody are so abysmal - and it isn't even funny - ya kinda disgusting that it's about AIDS during Christmas - and I think offensive to people with AIDS
Why isn't this number one? Just look at the title!

21I'll Never Do It On a Christmas Tree
This song is horrible! It's the song Rodney Dangerfield sings in "Rover Dangerfield" (His character is a dog). It's sung from the point of a dog about how he would never urinate on a Christmas Tree.

258 Days of Christmas
This really is the nadir of Christmas songs, I hate it with all my heart. I was never a fan of Destiony's Child but this surpasses everything else they've recorded in the crap stakes by a mile. Why inflict this dirge on people? Why only 8 days? Why oh why didn't they fall into a chasm before they got to the recording studio? Someone tell me why?!

26Baby, It's Cold Outside
Oh my god. It was painful for me to even put it on the list. can't stand his voice or the lyrics. It is terrible
Uh what?

Dean Martin and Ray Charles both did wonderful versions of this song!
The entire production crew of "Glee" should be strangled with piano wire for bringing this chauvinist piggy abomination back into airplay. "Say, what's in this drink? " Oh, just a little enlightened 21st century drop of date rape.

31Christmas Is All Around
I like "Love Actually" if only for Bill Nighy's riotous performance as Billy Mack, aging rock star... BUT his singing of his "Festering turd of a record" in the nude is not quite how I want to remember Christmas.

32Happy Xmas (War Is Over)
I like this song. Great job John Lennon!
