Top Ten Best Metal Christmas Songs

The Top Ten

1 Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24) - Savatage Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24) - Savatage Cover Art

This song is awesome, although I prefer Wizards in Winter. I didn’t even know this was Savatage. - PhoenixAura81

Until this year I didn't know Savatage wrote the greatest christmas song I've ever heard.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra made this song more popular than the original. Jon Oliva is genius (composer, singer and founding member of these two bands). - Metal_Treasure

@MorbidCannibalSlayer - yes, you are not alone. The majority of people don't know who wrote the original. Dare to say Savatage are the most underrated metal band of all time. Check out my Top 10 lists on Savatage and Jon Oliva. - Metal_Treasure

9 All I Want for Christmas - Theocracy All I Want for Christmas - Theocracy Cover Art

Well Santa had to close up his workshop
Sometime after Christmas '09
'Cause sadly the economy's a mess and jobs are hard to find
It's sad to see our holiday heroes
Struggling to just make a dime
But it's sink or swim, 'cause the times are grim It's like a
Christmas Special in the unemployment line...
Frosty got a job in a kitchen
And his boss is in a terrible mood - Metal_Treasure
