Martinglez

The Top Ten

1 Jingle Bell Rock - Bobby Helms Jingle Bell Rock - Bobby Helms
2 White Christmas - Bing Crosby White Christmas - Bing Crosby
3 Happy Xmas (War is Over) - John Lennon Happy Xmas (War is Over) - John Lennon
4 O Come O Come Emmanuel - Theocracy

Released in 2007. I'm sure this is the best and most beautiful modern version of a Christmas song. Awesome vocals from Matt Smith and a great new arrangement. The style is progressive power metal. - Metal_Treasure

5 Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree - Brenda Lee Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree - Brenda Lee

This song was recorded in 1958 and to be honest, it's too far from my understanding of 'modern'. - Metal_Treasure

6 Do They Know It's Christmas Time - Band Aid Do They Know It's Christmas Time - Band Aid
7 Last Christmas - Wham! Last Christmas - Wham!

This should be number one! I love this song so much! - RockFashionista

8 Merry Christmas Everybody - Slade Merry Christmas Everybody - Slade
9 We Three Kings - Halford We Three Kings - Halford

Just perfect - Rob Halford never disappoints. - Metal_Treasure

10 The Little Drummer Boy - Christopher Lee The Little Drummer Boy - Christopher Lee

The well know actor Christopher Lee became a metalhead in his late 80s and even recorded metal albums at 90! His bassy singing voice is pretty impressive for a 90 yo guy! - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Blue Christmas - Elvis Presley Blue Christmas - Elvis Presley
12 All I Want for Christmas - Theocracy All I Want for Christmas - Theocracy

This is a really new song and it isn't a cover. Lyrics are quite odd but funny. The song refers to the economic situation in the US circa 2010.

"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
...
Santa went to work in a coal mine
And the irony is perfectly clear
He's got zero toys for the girls and boys
I guess we've all been bad this year" - Metal_Treasure

13 Christmas Griping - R.E.M.
14 Driving Home for Christmas - Chris Rea Driving Home for Christmas - Chris Rea
15 Wynter Fever - Theocracy Wynter Fever - Theocracy
16 Mistress for Christmas - AC/DC Mistress for Christmas - AC/DC
17 Fairytale of New York - The Pogues Fairytale of New York - The Pogues
18 O Holy Night - Celine Dion O Holy Night - Celine Dion
19 Walking In the Air - Jackie Evancho Walking In the Air - Jackie Evancho
