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 Mistletoe Cover Art

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

Why isn't this the worst...

Not the best song! Definitely it got annoying I just wanted to bash my head in the wall and die after hearing it 6 billion ' times on the radio!

THis is the worst song not just because it's justin bieber but because it's not catchy, and it's just generic pop crap.

2 Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer Cover Art

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.

Some insane song titles like "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer","Santa Claus Got the AIDs This Year","I Farted/Pooped On Santa's Laps","I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa",etc. are just funny of how we brought these type of garbage when we celebrate Jesus' birthday about how kids tried to inflatuate Santa Claus' laps at the mall for no reason at all and some like kids seeing Mom's kissing Santa (by Dad in his costume) and like this song about an old lady got ran over by Rudolph. And yeah, the plot of the lyrics was just plain weird without what the songwriters doing.

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.

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.

3 Christmas Shoes Christmas Shoes Cover Art

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.

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

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!

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.

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

5 Santa Baby - Madonna Santa Baby - Madonna Cover Art

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

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

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?

"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?!

6 Please, Daddy (Don't Get Drunk This Christmas) Please, Daddy (Don't Get Drunk This Christmas) Cover Art

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 I Farted On Santa's Lap - The Little Stinkers Cover Art

What the heck kinda sing is this?!

I think Britgirl would like this song...

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

Which brain dead idiot wrote this?

8 I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas Cover Art

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

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

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

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

9 I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus Cover Art

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 All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth Cover Art

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.

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.

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

11 Wonderful Christmas Time Wonderful Christmas Time Cover Art

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.

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.

Every time I try to defend McCartney over Lennon, my friend the Lennon fan asks "Who wrote the better Christmas song? ". And he has me dead to rights. This song is one of the main reasons I don't like listening to Christmas music radio stations in December. Apparently they all think this song is cool because it's by McCartney. Well, he's written a lot of great music, but this boring piece of garbage doesn't qualify.

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.

12 Christmas Tree - Lady Gaga Christmas Tree - Lady Gaga Cover Art

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 I Pooped on Santa's Lap - Toilet Bowl Cleaners Cover Art

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 Santa's a Fat Bitch - Insane Clown Posse Cover Art

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?

15 It's Christmas Day Bro - Jake Paul It's Christmas Day Bro - Jake Paul Cover Art

This song should be at least in the top 5.

This song is awful.

What the hell

You just put this on here because Jake Paul. Not every bad Christmas song is done by a YouTuber and/or Bieber.

16 Frosty - Afroman Frosty - Afroman Cover Art

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

17 Holiday - Body Language Holiday - Body Language Cover Art
18 Merry Mutha******* Xmas - Eazy E Merry Mutha******* Xmas - Eazy E Cover Art
19 Christmas Wrapping - Spice Girls Christmas Wrapping - Spice Girls Cover Art

is that who sings that damn song?

20 The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire) The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire) Cover Art

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 Drummer Boy - Justin Bieber Cover Art

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 Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Cover Art

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

Its really annoying after a while!

I kinda like it though, gets me in the Christmas spirit.

24 Deck the Halls - Jake Paul

Deck the halls? More like wreck the Pauls!

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.
