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 Wonderful Christmas Time Cover Art

There is no such thing as a Paul McCartney song that is annoying! Take this classic off the list and move Mistletoe up to first!

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.

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

I CAN'T STAND THIS SONG ANYMORE! I had to sing this for a show. I wish I complained over it instead of actually doing it. I was actually okay with singing the song but I wish I complained over it.

As bad as Alvin and the Chipmunks is, it's undeniably nostalgic.

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

3 I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas Cover Art

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.

Ugh, this vocalist has a grating voice.

4 All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth Cover Art

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.

This song brings me back. I used to sing it in elementary school at carols night.

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

I really hate this song.

5 Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer Cover Art

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.

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.

Hate it so much

6 Jingle Bells Jingle Bells Cover Art

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.

7 I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus Cover Art

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.

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

I really hope that's his Dad dressed up as Santa.

8 All I Want For Christmas Is You All I Want For Christmas Is You Cover Art

This song isn't even that good.

Annoying and overplayed

9 Litmas Litmas Cover Art
10 Jingle Bell Rock Jingle Bell Rock Cover Art

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.

This should not be above Mistletoe.

The Contenders
11 Where Did My Snowman Go Where Did My Snowman Go Cover Art

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".

12 Santa Baby Santa Baby Cover Art

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.

13 Mistletoe Mistletoe Cover Art
14 Grandpa's Gonna Sue the Pants Off Santa Grandpa's Gonna Sue the Pants Off Santa Cover Art

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?

15 A Holly Jolly Christmas - Barney A Holly Jolly Christmas - Barney Cover Art
16 Deck the Halls
17 Last Christmas Last Christmas Cover Art

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.

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

This is a classic!

18 Deck the Halls - Barney Deck the Halls - Barney Cover Art
19 Frosty the Snowman Frosty the Snowman Cover Art
20 The Twelve Days of Christmas The Twelve Days of Christmas Cover Art

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

21 Here Comes Santa Claus Here Comes Santa Claus Cover Art
22 Fairytale of New York Fairytale of New York Cover Art

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.
