Top 10 Most Annoying Christmas Songs

Whether they're overplayed or just completely unlistenable, these are the Christmas jingles that make us want to change the station the first chance we get.

The Top Ten

1 Wonderful Christmas Time

One of the worst Christmas songs of all time if you ask me. That synth is unbearable and it's just all around bad and unlistenable. I don't know how anyone can listen to this mess and not feel irritated. Paul McCartney might be a talented musician, but this is just an absolute train-wreck of a song that should have been left in the past and forgotten about. - SplashMoun10

This is my favourite Christmas song...

Excuse me. But did you know The Beatles never had any Christmas songs.


2 The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)

It's the chipmunks, what more needs to be said? - SplashMoun10

3 Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer

I haven't heard this but I saw the name and thought "what? "

Hate it so much - blackflower

An annoying novelty song that pretty much no one likes. It tries to be humorous, but it falls flat on its face in that attempt and it's all around just unpleasant to listen to. I'd be perfectly fine if I never heard this song again, but knowing how the Christmas stations are, I'll likely have to hear it a thousand times more. - SplashMoun10

*sigh* - BreakFastBeast2005

4 All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth

For children only

This was funny for children, but for adults, it's annoying and stupid.

This is one of those songs that's fine when you're a kid, but is probably the last thing you want to listen to as an adult. - SplashMoun10

A stupid novelty song that should've been forgotten a month after its release. "Aww, liften, the tfild hath a lifp! Ifn't it adorable? " No. It's not. - Treacle

5 I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas

Same as "My Two Front Teeth", it's alright when you're a kid, but it's not something that I want playing on the radio all season long. - SplashMoun10

Ugh, this vocalist has a grating voice. - Treacle

6 I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

Adultery? Please keep the Bible out of a holiday you wouldn't even have if the Christians hadn't killed the Pagans, hijacked their holiday and turned it into Christmas to make it into Jesus birth. Search for "Christmas" in the Bible and December.

Does anyone even like this song? 'Cause I've yet to find one person who does. It's a song about a child catching his mother in an act of adultery, what more needs to be said? I always change the station when it comes on. - SplashMoun10

It's not adultery. "Santa Claus" is just the main character's father dressed up as Santa. He/she is just a kid, and too stupid to realize that. - Treacle

Even if it is the Dad dressed up as Santa Claus, it's still grating to listen to. - SplashMoun10

OH that's where the jacksfilms parody comes from

7 Litmas
8 Where Did My Snowman Go - Petula Clark

The yelling children are super annoying and present for most of the song. They tried to make the narrator's stupidity adorable... but failed miserably. I just wanted to grab her and scream "YOUR SNOWMAN MELTED, YOU MORON". - Treacle

9 Santa Baby

I've never liked this song, it comes off as creepy and it's just not what I want to hear during the Christmas season. It can be decent depended on who is singing it, but overall, it's one of my least favorites. - SplashMoun10

10 Grandpa's Gonna Sue the Pants Off Santa

I'm fairly certain that this is written and sang by the same guys who did "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer". What's with these guys and elderly people?

What? No rly this is actually a song? 🤦‍♀️

The Contenders

11 Mistletoe
12 All I Want For Christmas Is You

Annoying and overplayed

13 Jingle Bells

Probably the most overplayed Christmas song of all time. It's not bad, but after the billionth time of hearing it, it just becomes irritating. - SplashMoun10

14 The Twelve Days of Christmas

Very repetitive

A classic, but it's very repetitive and gets old really quick. - SplashMoun10

15 Last Christmas

WHAT I love this song!

It's a fave but its one of the first ones you will hear when Christmas comes, you will hear it all the time.

Another song that's not bad necessarily, but it's not one I particularly care for all that much and it's been overplayed to death. - SplashMoun10

16 Dominic the Italian Christmas Donkey - Joey O
17 Fairytale of New York

It starts off bland, but most of it is annoying - especially the grating call-and-response parts. Also, it's about *youthful hopes crushed by alcoholism and drug addiction*. Nevertheless, it's often considered the best Christmas song of all time. I cannot fathom why. It doesn't help that its popularity leads to it being overplayed. - Treacle

18 Jingle Bell Rock

It's a good,song but when it's December you have to hear it a million times in a Row!

What? This song is actually fairly pleasant. - Treacle

19 We Wish You a Merry Christmas

This annoying song sometimes - trains45


Way too repetitive, and the nagging about figgy pudding is stupid and annoying. - Treacle

20 Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town

This super annoying get stuck in my head - trains45

Really annoying vocals.
