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

JB. That alone is enough. - Maddox121

Why isn't this the worst...

I don't think this should be number one. Justin Bieber is way too overhated nowadays. It's definitely not the worst. *cough* Wonderful Christmas Time *cough* - PandasNGaga

2 Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer

I honestly like this song, but as a parody of Christmas, NOT as a song you here along with "Christmas Time Is Here", "Frosty The Snowman" and Burl Ives. - Maddox121

This song is disrespectful to elders, kind of depressing, and way too catchy!

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.

It's about a grandma dying and they say she was drunk it's so sad I HATE THIS SONG!

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

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! - Maddox121

The song is quite horrific, you cain't hardly hear it, and the worst voice imaginable - he is so drudgy, the bass and melody are so abysmal - and it isn't even funny - ya kinda disgusting that it's about AIDS during Christmas - and I think offensive to people with AIDS

This, I think, needs to be much higher up. - PositronWildhawk

Why isn't this number one? Just look at the title!

4 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 ...more

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 came out the same damn year my grandmother died! (She died on that Halloween of that year) HORRIBLE SONG. And then the idiots on the radio had to play it once an hour!?!?!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?! DO YOU KNOW HOW DEPRESSED I WAS THAT XMAS!?!?!?!

I don't hate this song, but Patton Oswalt was just to good when it came to this one.

5 Santa Baby - Madonna

This song is literally sexualizing an old man who's like 300. Madonna's like 20 when she wrote the song. - Maddox121

It's a song about a greedy girl asking Santa for a bunch of expensive stuff. Isn't that the opposite of what Christmas is about?

I don't hate the song, it's just Madonna's version. I hate the annoying baby voice. It's like she's trying to be cute, but she's not. - PandasNGaga

This song is very disturbing. It's also REALLY annoying. Really, it just makes me sick.

6 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.

The title got me dead

Dear God what was that?

Terrible, terrible song with terrible, terrible lyrics!

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

What the heck kinda sing is this?!

I think Britgirl would like this song... - Turkeyasylum

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

What is this title?

8 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. - Maddox121

The girl singing is amazing, she has charisma, improvises lyrics perfectly, and just has a great voice.

That said, this song is awful. It is basically what an adult would think a kid would want for Christmas. It's also unreasonable since the child would probably die the second she gets the hippo. Hippos are dangerous. - WonkeyDude98

This song is like nails on a chalkboard to me. I can't stand it, it's so awful and annoying!

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.

I'm sure you secretly hate Michael Jackson, but don't wanna admit it, cause he sang as a child. - TeamRocket747

9 I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

The mom is 30. Santa Claus is like 300-something. Something's disgusting... - Maddox121

It sucks plain crap

Shut up awesome song an amazing classic

Depend on who sings it. Frankie Valle and the Four Seasons and The Jackson 5ive and Tiny Tim had better versions that that stupid Jimmy Boyd singing it and who in Hell told that kid he can sing?!?!?


10 All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth

I literally thought Mr. Bagdasarian was singing this song as Theodore when I was a kid, that's how stupid it sounds. - Maddox121

So bad - Muffet13

Can't listen to it. Nice when you're young. And people who don't vote for this still need their front teeth.

The kid talking is super annoying - minongirl77

That wasn't a kid but a adult singing in a high pitch voice who was singing and his name was George Rock who was the lead vocal for Spike Jones and his City Slickers.

The Newcomers

? I Love Christmas - Austin Moon

The Contenders

11 Wonderful Christmas Time

I don't like this song. - PandasNGaga

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 is absolutely horrible. Its ultra-repetitive, uninspired vocals and cheesy keyboards make me queasy. I'd rather drink rotten eggnog than listen to that tripe.

A song written by McCartney to just make money. The only one is his catalog with no music merit and bugs me every year.

12 Christmas Tree - Lady Gaga

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. - PandasNGaga

This song is awful and just plain stupid. I don't think that anyone was asking for a song about sex using Christmas-themed innuendos.

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. - Swellow

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.

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

The name of this band i-

"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. - Donut

The name of this band... - Harri666

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

14 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. - Spark_Of_Life

Awww... did poor 7 year old group Insane Clown Posse get coal again? - TeamRocket747

15 It's Christmas Day Bro - Jake Paul

This song is awful. - B1ueNew

This song should be at least in the top 5. - B1ueNew

What the hell

Good god

16 Merry Mutha******* Xmas - Eazy E
17 Frosty - Afroman

I clicked on the sample and um...

Who asked for a song about Frosty the Snowman having sex and then having his d*** melted? - Spark_Of_Life

18 Holiday - Body Language
19 Christmas Wrapping - Spice Girls
20 The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)

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

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)

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

Christmas is best described in this song...

21 Drummer Boy - Justin Bieber

Another classic ruined by JB. - Maddox121

Ruined a classic

You only hate it cause it's Bieber. Stop bashing Bieber, Bieber's overhated. - TeamRocket747

Dumpest sing - Lunala

22 Make It Christmas Day - Jann Arden
23 Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer

LOVE IT - Luckys

Don't get me wrong, I love the animated special of this song
But I will admit, this song just gets really annoying at times and especially with those stupid fillers kids put into the song that just sounds ridiculous
Oi, all I can say is I love the song as much as the next person; but I don't wanna hear it over a hundred trillion times!

If this was the best Christmas song list, this should be first. You know nothing, user or visitor who placed this here - keyson

Its really annoying after a while!

24 Deck the Halls - Jake Paul

Deck the halls? More like wreck the Pauls! - Muffet13

25 Baby, It's Cold Outside

i like it - Luckys

Of course it has to be on the list... even higher than Last Christmas (a stupid song, but not as stupid is Hippo), Santa Diss Track (Logan Paul made this song), and even LIZZIE MCQUIRE SINGING JINGLE BELL ROCK! It's not sexist, a women literally sings the song... Why is this banned but not Hippo for Christmas or Two Front Teeth. Everybody who says this is a sheltered little person who can't handle reality for more than 2 seconds. The new version is legit terrible, but the old, Nah... it's a great song, I'm even planning to start a punch buggy alternative to punch whenever this gets on the radio (which is rare nowadays). "I Can't Believe This Song Exists In 2018 and this is worse than Justin Bieber" ahh yes... Current Year, oldest trick in the book, and how is an innocent yet double meaning christmas song worse than BABY BABY BABY O! I agree with Anon who says "Do you mean the new version that belongs on Kidz Bop" I agree. It's way longer than any of the Liberals rant, it will take ...more - Maddox121

Yes, this is worse than Justin Bieber. I cannot believe this song even exists in 2018.

The lyrics are horrific! The date-rape tone is just too uncomfortable.

26 The Chanukah Song - Adam Sandler

This is a CHANUKAH song. Can you people READ?!

It's Adam Sandler. Enough said...

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...


27 Do They Know It's Christmas - Band Aid

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 ...more

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 is good! Why is this so high in the list? - Misfire

Why is this on the list? - Userguy44

28 Santa Hates Poor Kids - Yfm Music Video

One of the few good here

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

That's rude

29 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. - Spark_Of_Life

30 This Christmas (I'll Burn It to the Ground)
31 Santa Claus is Comin' to Town - Miley Cyrus
32 Santa Diss Track - Logan Paul

Oh god I really hope this did not happen and a troll made up a fake item for fun.

This should also be higher. - B1ueNew

Oh god no...


33 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.

34 I F***ing Love Christmas - Rob Scallon

This is the best Christmas song

Nope. This song is awesome. enough said.


I love this song how could u - Spiritualsavedboy


35 Baby's First Christmas - Connie Francis

Ick! Have this on a lovely Time-Life CD. It's terrible! Should be closer to #1!

36 Frosty the Snowman

Where is Christmas mentioned or implied in this tune? The cartoon is even weird.

I hate this song it's so annoying

"With a corncob pipe & a button nose"? Why not "with a corncob pipe & a bulbous nose"?!

37 Jingle Bell Rock - Hilary Duff
38 Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Michael Buble wasn't the best, but there are worse than his.

Springsteen's version is best.

Best version was The Pointer Sisters version.

Michael Jackson's version of this song is annoying. It doesn't sound good at all.

39 Jingle Pauls - Jake Paul
40 12 Days of Christmas - Jake Paul
41 I'll Never Do It On a Christmas Tree

This song is horrible! It's the song Rodney Dangerfield sings in "Rover Dangerfield" (His character is a dog). It's sung from the point of a dog about how he would never urinate on a Christmas Tree.

Whenever I hear this song, I think of all the trees being cut down just to give us this disaster.

When I hear this song, I think of all the trees being cut down just to give us this disaster.

This is the GOAT Christmas song whot r u talking about m8?

42 Nuttin' for Christmas

Stan Freberg and The Fontaine Sisters had a better version of this song but Barry Gordon's rendition wants me want to scream!

Never ever liked that song

Painful to listen to.

43 Suzy Snowflake

Click the sample. It's killing me... I don't know why and idc

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

This song is terminally annoying. Hated it even as a child.

The only thing that annoys me about this song is the chipmunks sing it in a high pitched tone.

Liked it as a kid, now I find it annoying

It's supposed to be annoying! It's singing chipmunks! - toptentophat29

45 Please Come Home for Christmas - Bon Jovi
46 The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot - Nat King Cole

I think you guys need to stop hating this one and those who hate this song is a huge insult to poor kids (and poverty, too)

It's about the kid always forgot by Santa. This is depressing. Even I have'nt heard of this song before but this is one of the most depressing songs in Christmas music's history and one of the best Christmas songs that most people in their childhood ever heard in their lives.

Stop hating this song or you have no heart. Christmas is about being unforgettable and memorable and Santa never forgets kids because he has a list of kids and he never forget each kids. So you better watch out and that's why.

Lyrics include " I am so sorry for that laddie, he hasn't got a daddy, the little boy that Santa Claus forgot"

The worst Christmas song I ever heard. Who the heck would create a song about Santa forgetting a little boy. Some people are huge Drama Queens. - PizzaGuy

This song needs to be up higher. - RiverClanRocks

47 Litmas - Jake Paul, Team 10 & Slim Jxmmi

NOT Lit - Muffet13

48 Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree - Brenda Lee

What? This song is awesome!

I hate her voice. I like this song just not her voice its awful and scratchy.

Wait, what? This song is a classic. This shouldn't be here!

I had to lead this song during a holiday sing-along, and the urge to break into Ave Maria or at least White Christmas was almost unbearable. Awful thing.

49 Christmastime Is Killing Us - Family Guy

Stewie Griffin = nauseating. Enough said.

50 Where Are You Christmas - Faith Hill

Over-sung, over-enunciated awfulness.

I've lost it to the song as a small child
