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

2 Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer

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

It's not *that* bad. The lyrics are enjoyable if you're into dark comedy. If you're not, you can ignore the lyrics in favour of the somewhat pleasant music. Musically, many Christmas songs are a lot more grating than this one. - Treacle

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

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

4 All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth

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

6 I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

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 - _Jack_

7 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

8 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

9 The Twelve Days of Christmas

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

10 Last Christmas

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

The Contenders

11 Jingle Bell Rock

What? This song is actually fairly pleasant. - Treacle

12 Grandpa's Gonna Sue the Pants Off Santa
13 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

14 We Wish You a Merry Christmas

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