Top Ten Worst Christmas Songs of All Time

Yes, the annoying, trite little jingles that radio stations across American insist on playing over...and....over.....and over.......
The Top Ten
1 Mistletoe

Listen to this song? Nah, I'd rather eat a smelly boot.
There isn't really any one thing I can pinpoint about this song that makes me dislike it; I pretty much dislike everything about it.
Let me make this clear, though. Justin Bieber is arguably the artist that people tend to have the strongest feelings about, both good and bad, and let's just say that I definitely don't have strongly GOOD feelings toward him. So it's just possible that I might be judging this song too harshly, just because of who is preforming it.
That being said, this song is weak. I forgot the chorus two thirds of the way into the song, and then I had to be reminded what it was when it came back again. It doesn't have a great beat, and the vocals... but that's just blaming Justin Bieber again, and personally, if his vocals are in any song, I immediately like it less.
The lyrics are sappy, and in my opinion, they don't really exhibit the true spirit of Christmas, but you know, at least they aren't like ...more

All of Justin's Christmas songs are so disgusting, they make me vomit. His version of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town is the worst by far. He hates Father Christmas with a passion. I bet it were no wonder Santa has never brought him any presents, because he's just been a naughty boy all his life. Or should I say A NAUGHTY GIRL!

This song is stupid it has very bad lyrics I would rather listen to any other Christmas song plus Justin Bieber is singing which Justin Bieber is stupid also when he sings he almost sounds like a girl. I would rather listen to a song like I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus or jingle bell rock.

Boring, Nothing catchy or good about this song, just a crappy beat with some lyrics about Christmas to it, no feeling in it whatsoever. This song certainly will not get you in the Christmas spirit.

2 Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer

I hate this song its mean, horrible ton elderly people, and too catchy. A kid sung it once, it was not cool at all. They even say she was drunk? It influences kids to like the one that sung it. I just cannot believe how disrespectful this song is to elderly people. If the person who made this song was trying to be funny, EPIC FAIL NOT FUNNY. Plus it is not good for the holiday spirit. I have it stuck in my head now. I can't stand it anymore. HELP ME. Wow this is a lot of complaints, did not expect such a long comment... Well yeah bad song.

Gee, folks, no one has a sense of humor anymore! Didn't you ever spend a holiday wishing something interesting would happen, even disastrous? to break the boredom? Do you also think that "The day the squirrel got lose" is disrespectful of religion? How about my personal favorite, "Dead skunk in the middle of the road"?
Learn to tell the difference between disrespect and poking a little fun, please.

Contrary to popular opinion, though I don't like the special as much I used to when I was younger, I actually kind of like this song. But if we're talking about the song where Cousin Mel and her assistant sing about suing Santa's pants off, that would have to be my most hated song during the special.

Most depressing Christmas song ever! Who wants to think about an old woman being trampled to death by Santa's reindeer on Christmas? It even got a Christmas cartoon special that's as bad as the song, too. Ugh...

3 Christmas Shoes

A horrible song. It takes a horrible, misguided meaning from an already dark tone that rings to the depressing tune of an "inspirational" e-mail your family members send you around the holidays. The song is about, yes, a boy's mother who is dying for certain reasons and he decides to buy his mother some Christmas Shoes presumably the night that she will die.

This song would have been fine if it carried along the message that Christmas is the time to be together as a family. It shouldn't carry the focus of the importance of purchasing material goods in the name of pleasing your mother who, I imagine, would probably prefer you being by her side in her dying moments. I wouldn't mind if the song just ended with "I put the money down, he said 'thanks' and walked away", but instead the message carries on into a dark, evil moral that only Veggietales could churn out while in a bad mood.

"I knew that God had sent that little boy to remind me what Christmas is all about". That is ...more

I do not know how such a song can end up on here, the song is about a boys mom who is dying, he wanted to get her a pair of shoes so she can be happy! Yet he is too poor to afford them so the man behind the boy buys it for him! This song teaches us what Christmas is about, giving. Also to those who say that Christmas songs aren't supposed to be depressing forget that for some people Christmas is depressing. The lyrics, meaning, and singers (depends on which version) make this without a doubt one of the BEST Christmas songs out there.
You poor, poor, people.

Who wants to here a song about death during the most wonderful time of the year?! I know I don't. I've shed enough tears durning the year so don't act like I'm a cold hearted person! It's highly inappropriate! If this song was an Easter Song, I could tolerate it because Easter is a more somber holiday, but Christmas is a celebration of life and a time to enjoy your family! It's there to end the year on a good note, not to have a pity party! Christmas is a time to forget all of your troubles and be joyful! What a way to ruin somebody's holiday!

This song is so sad. I can't listen to the radio at Christmas time because I'm afraid this song will come on because Christmas songs shouldn't make you cry! They should make you happy! I get that it explains giving and everything but I don't want to cry at Christmas because Christmas should be about celebrating the wonderful birth of Christ which is not sad or depressing AT ALL! This song is too sad to be good. I totally agree with this choice!

4 Santa Claus Has Got the Aids This Year - Tiny Tim

You don't even need to hear the song to think it's bad- the voice is irritating, And it's super quiet. It's rude to be doing a song on CHRISTMAS, and especially about SAINT NICOLAS.. It's probably meant as a joke, but talking about this on Christmas is no joke. I'm just saying, it's rude and the songs not even GOOD! And they expected for this song to make money?

Comu-chan would HATE this song. It sounds like a dumb attempt to be funny, but instead, it's very offensive. On one of my remixes of a hated Xmas songs list, the image for this song is Comu-chan crying, whilst wearing a aids awareness sash.

This song... This sounds like a Robot Chicken parody that was written on toilet paper, and this is the same guy who wrote Living In The Sunlight from SpongeBob SquarePants!

This is the worst Christmas song I have ever heard. If I was this guy I would want to be hated more than anything then sing this to the public. Who does this guy think he is the old santa with aids.this song makes me want to barf all over the place.

5 Please, Daddy (Don't Get Drunk This Christmas)

I've never heard of this song, but it sounds terrible. And you know that if it says daddy, it's most likely either sung by or directed to young people.

This song is so bad that it is great to play on a bar jukebox during the holidays.

Um... This is the worst song I've ever heard! It's too much for my ears laugh out loud!

What the heck! I've never even heard of this but the title says it all.

6 Santa Baby - Madonna

I really hate this song it should be no1 on this list, It chucks the whole meaning of Christmas out of the window & it actually dampens your mood when listening to this song. Most Christmas songs will get you in the spirit, or remind you of the birth of Jesus or make you think of spending time with your family or make you think of snow & Christmas tree's but all you can imagine to this song is some sort of sleazy, Slutty, Santa grotto sung by a prostitute in a run down neighborhood who wants to get laid by Santa.. Most certainly NOT what Santa or Christmas is about.

"Think of all the fellas, I haven't kissed"?! What kind of lyrics is that?! So the song idea is that this person kissed many people and wants to kiss Santa?! I might be wrong, but Santa is married to Mrs. Claus! Who would want to make out with Santa?!

Whenever someone asks you to do a musical preformance of this, say no! I'd bet a hundred bucks (no not really) that you'd be a hundred percent embarassed. At least all I want for Christmas is my two front teeth and grandma got ran over by a reindeer is cute. Anyways I wouldn't want to do with this.

Any Christmas song that has the word "Baby" in the title sucks (see "Baby, It's Cold Outside"... then there's that Rod Stewart album called "Merry Christmas, Baby"). Santa Baby is one of the most annoying songs I've ever heard, period. It was obviously written to add a hipness and freshness, and a bit of sex-appeal to Christmas.

7 I Farted On Santa's Lap - The Little Stinkers

It is actually a very good song, I would highly recommend. It is family friendly, and it provides a little humor for the children.

I haven't heard this song, however I can tell that I probably don't want to hear it...

Teacher wanted the children to sing this at a small town community concert … more to keep in the classroom I would think. Disrespect is what it is.

What kinda title is that? It makes me laugh because of the goofy title.

8 Wonderful Christmas Time

To the person who said this (Who in the world would buy this song). What is wrong with you. Paul McCartney is great. Justin Bieber is way worse than Paul McCartney. The Worst Paul McCartney track is better than the best Justin Bieber track or from any teen pop artist. Rock Christmas music is better than any other type of Christmas music since Rock is the best type of music. I know you said nothing about Justin Bieber but I said all this since the track is not that bad.

I never really understood why people hate this song, it's just simple song about having fun on Christmas. But I must admit, I like Ready Set's (an indies music band) cover A WHOLE LOT better than the original, give it a listen, he captures the mood better.

Seriously a horrible, horrible song all together. Considering the hit machine that McCartney and the Beatles were, this is a sad inclusion in their career. The incessant mind numbing keyboard is the WORST sounding piano EVER! And the delay in the chorus just doubles the sickening experience. That setting should be removed from every keyboard to ensure musical torture like this is never produced again.

This song makes me want to puke out my egg nog every time I hear it. Muskrat Love is a masterpiece compared to this. Yet they play it every hour on the hour. War is Over is equally dreaful. Original scores and master tapes should have been napalmed along with this at the end of Vietnam. Always hated the Beatles anyway. This song sucks with its 1980's K-Mart Cassio Piano and a children's choir dragged from their off-pitch church program to record it without a single rehearsal.

9 All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth

oh my god I hated that everybody was singing this to me when I was six years old, if I was the way I am now back then I would have punched there two front teeth out.

What if your 15 and have all of your adult teeth and how the hell is someone just gonna GIVE you your front teeth?
They'll come down when they are ready!

Creepy lyrics sung by a grown man trying to sound like a child, but he really just comes across sounding like Herbert the Pervert. Wonderful.

This don't make any sense how can santa bring you two front teeth. Tooth regrows overtime also I heard this at school such an annoying song.

10 I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas

This song is very dumb, it shows that any song can be played on Christmas as long as it's about it (same goes with Santa Claus has AIDS This Year). This song alone almost made the Peanuts have adult voice actors and almost killed child singers. It's a disgrace to society and should be banned instead of Baby It's Cold Outside.

Ugh. Ever since I was a kid I've hated this song. Kid singers are the worst by default, with rare exception, and she is the worst of them. Not to mention that it's a completely stupid thing to want for Christmas - or any holiday. I hope the hippo eats her.

How can my parents afford a giant hippo for Christmas?!?! It might defecate all over the house's upholstery and it's viscosity/weight might break the floorboards!

That little girls voice is very annoying! This should be in the top ten because it makes you want to strangle a pig then jump off a cliff

The Contenders
11 I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

This song is awful. Yeah, it would have been an unbelievably funny sight if "Daddy" walked through the door while your mother was tonguing Santa. Yeah, adultery is totally fine, kids. *Sarcasm*.

This is the worst who would kiss santa and be okay with it. You do not know were his lips have been. And you should not be kissing santa if you have a husband wow. (This should be in part at the top

Santa Claus is real? Haha, the song is just a bit of mischief just as so many of the customs the festival carries. There's no point in arguing about the lyrics.

This song is about a kid seeing his mom kissing Santa but santa is the father in a costume. It's told from a kids perspective so he thinks his moms cheating but she's not

12 Christmas Tree - Lady Gaga

Christmas songs sung by the same woman who Loves Judas? No No NO. Gaga stick to what you know by acting like a freak, wearing dresses made out of meat & singing pop songs (which I think are equally as awful as your Christmas song). But just Leave the Christmas songs to the Michael Buble's & Mariah's of the pop world.

Lady Gaga personally isn't a bad singer, but this is my personal worst song of hers. I mean, Born This Way had a good meaning, but she goes from supporting your inner self to making out, with a few festive innuendos to make sure it's still Christmas-y.

Come on, Gaga, you can do much better.

I love Lady Gaga, but I do not like this song. I mean, it's pretty disturbing what she's using a Christmas Tree as a metaphor for. This is my second least favorite Gaga song. I love you, Lady Gaga, but this song, ouch.

How the hell does lady gaga make a Christmas song? She sucks at singing. Christmas is a great time how could you ruin a Christmas song? Well she did it with this.

13 I Pooped on Santa's Lap - Toilet Bowl Cleaners

"I Pooped On Santa's Lap", "All I Want For Christmas is my Two Front Teeth", "I Farted on Santa's Lap", "Santa Claus Has Got the Aids This Year". Dang, these names are insane! Can't believe you'd want to celebrate the birth of Christ by hearing a song about how some mall Santa got pooped on by a little kid. Pretty funny to think about, though.

The band says it all. The song title as well, even though their songs have strange titles. Apparently, this is a joke band.

What airhead writes this kind of tripe to begin with?

Do I need to explain why it's on the list?

14 Do They Know It's Christmas - Band Aid

I disagree completely. Sure, the lyrics are kind of depressing, but it's trying to SEND A MESSAGE. In case you haven't noticed, this song wasn't made yesterday or something. It's from 1984. Back then, it was different. Less people were well off. (Not like its changed or anything) Less people would've known it was Christmas. These days, Christmas is less of a Christian holiday. Me and my family are humanists, not Christian and we celebrate Christmas! For us it's just more about the gift of giving and Saint Nick, not Jesus.

And as my final thing to mention, 'Well tonight thank God it's them, instead of you' probably doesn't mean,

'Oh, goodness, thank GOD it's those kids suffering and not you! '

It's probably more like, 'Well you're lucky you're not in their shoes.'

That make sense?

Christmas is not just for Christians do you even know that it used to be a holiday called Pagan Yule, but the church couldn't ban it for popularity so they changed it to Christmas because Jesus didn't have a birth date just the nativity. All the Christmas trees, Christmas dinner and Christmas parties are not in the bible. Then we have Santa Claus who yes he was based on a Christian Saint called Saint Nicolas but he was not in the Bible either. Christmas is for everyone so shut up and deal with it.

This song has a good message about caring about others, but it still has a self-centered tinge to it.

"There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing
Is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring there
Are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight, thank God it's them instead of you"

Excuse me? We're supposed to be thankful that others are suffering, just because they're not us?

Sure, the song tells us to "feed the world," but this still doesn't change the fact that it comes across as insensitive to people in developing countries. This song is worst than "The Christmas Shoes." At least with "The Christmas Shoes," one could argue that God would be taking care of the dying mother when she gets to heaven (a paradise), and he would find a way to take care of the little boy. Maybe God intended the man (in which the song is sung from the perspective of) to enter the little boy's life ...more

Not everybody in Africa is Christian. They don't need to know it's Christmas. Very offensive.

15 Santa's a Fat Bitch - Insane Clown Posse

Insane Clown Posse, a group of fat, untalented freaks, makes a song about how poor kids don't get presents and how they fantazise about killing Santa while they get another million deposited in their bank. With none of that going ot charity. Nice job, you hypocrites.

Awww... did poor 7 year old group Insane Clown Posse get coal again?

16 Baby, It's Cold Outside

Ironically, if the roles in this song were reversed, the WOKE people would insist it's about female empowerment and be toting it as the best Christmas song ever.

Even if we ignore the creepy undertones, it's still not a very enjoyable track. It sounds more like an argument or an awkward conversation than a Christmas song.

I would rather stand outside naked in the cold than listen to this song inside in the warmth.

Agree! My grandma sings this song all the time. gets annoying. But it is a good song sometimes, but not all the time.

17 The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)

Bieber should Quit singing all together, especially quit at singing Christmas songs anyway. He is ruining the Christmas vibe when his crappy songs come on the radio. He sucks! (By the way I am a teenage girl & I can't stand Bieber's music so not all girls are in love with him)

I think this is in list more for our hatred towards the artist than the song itself. This cover of the song is awful.

This is easily in the top five BEST Christmas songs! Who put this in here?

Not a bad song all around, but Bieber's version is horrendous.

18 Drummer Boy - Justin Bieber

You only hate it cause it's Bieber. Stop bashing Bieber, Bieber's overhated.

Ruined a classic

19 Frosty - Afroman

I clicked on the sample and um...

20 The Chanukah Song - Adam Sandler

Aw, we sang this (tried to anyway) every Hanukah party and died laughing. Which isn't a bad way to go...just silly and pointing out sort of how silly...

Sandler is Jewish, so it ain't a Christmas song.

21 Santa Hates Poor Kids - Yfm Music Video

This sounds like a terrible song! I've never listened to it but it sounds like crap! Why would Santa hate poor kids?

Ugh! This song stinks

22 Peppermint Winter - Owl City

Yes, this is even worse than Do They Know It's Christmas. A whiny voice, childish and annoying lyrics, and ear-bleeding instrumentals all come together to make this song the nadir of the Christmas season.

23 This Christmas (I'll Burn It to the Ground)
24 Merry Mutha******* Xmas - Eazy E
25 Little Drummer Boy

I never understood why there's a drum being played and people singing drum noises. It seems redundant. I also don't understand why the song sounds so depressing. The song basically has a repetitive melody, except for when the song for whatever reason gets louder before getting to the one of the worst excuses for a chorus I've ever heard. Whichever version has the weird, dreary humming in the beginning is the worst.

Can you imagine a young girl after a terrible journey and a difficult unassisted birth finally gets the baby to sleep and some snotty nosed brat starts playing the drum. Stupid stupid song

There are worse songs than this, but there is one by a pop star that makes me cringe. Shows why pop stars should never be allowed to release Christmas carols.

Worst version: Bing Crosby, with David BOWIE. Look it up, and prepare to hurl.
