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

This song is terrible, the synth is terrible, it never builds or does anything exciting, it just keeps that same boring melody, not only that but this song is just greedy, the only reason it exists is because Paul McCartney wanted to make a song but not have to share any money with all the Beatles members. So much for the season on giving!

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 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.

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

This one is horrible the worst Christmas song I ever heard! So ayonning weird does make any sense I want to sink though the floor when I hear it!

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

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

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.

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.

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 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.

9 All I Want For Christmas Is You
10 Last Christmas

I hate to offend anyone who likes this song, but this is one of the worst songs of all time. Every time I hear the song's lousy 80's synthesizer beginning, I tense up and want to bang my head into a wall, and my blood boils once George Michael starts singing. Seriously, I cannot stand this song!

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.

The Contenders
11 The Twelve Days of Christmas

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

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 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'?

14 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.

15 Last Christmas - Crazy Frog
16 Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
17 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.

18 The Twelve Days of Christmas - Barney
19 Jingle Bells - Crazy Frog
20 Mary, Did You Know?
21 Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town
22 Christmas Is Creepy - Fred Figglehorn
23 Last Christmas - Gummibär

The amount of Christmas songs this stupid bear ruined with his annoying voice and beats is beyond ridiculous.

24 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".

25 We Wish You a Merry Christmas

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