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.

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!

What? This song is awesome! What's wrong with you people?

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.

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.

This is very bad because when I was 6, I heard this song and got scared because I thought that my grandma would get run over.

Very annoying song !

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

This is a silly song. Good thing I rarely hear it on the radio.

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.

I hadn't even heard of this song until just a few years back. It's definitely annoying !

Ugh, this vocalist has a grating voice.

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.

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.

This is very funny

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.

8 All I Want For Christmas Is You

This song isn't even that good.

Annoying and overplayed

9 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.

10 Last Christmas

This is my favorite Christmas song though… In my opinion it shouldn't be on the list. And how is it above The Twelve Days of 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.

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!

The Contenders
11 The Twelve Days of Christmas

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

Too much to remember

12 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.

13 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.

This should not be above Mistletoe.

14 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?

Was this by the guy who wrote 'Grandma got run over by a reindeer'?

15 Last Christmas - Crazy Frog
16 We Wish You a Merry Christmas

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

17 Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town

Really annoying vocals.

18 Litmas
19 Baby, It's Cold Outside

It's hilarious how the modern cover is on here. Censorship is indeed annoying, way more annoying than talking chipmunks (albeit probably can't beat the annoyingness of Mariah Carey), that is.

20 Mistletoe
21 A Holly Jolly Christmas - Barney
22 Where Did My Snowman Go

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".

23 Little Saint Nick
24 Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
25 Jingle Bells - Gummibär

Gummibar is way past his prime, his design reeks of outdated CGI of a bygone era of the internet.
