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 Contenders: Page 4

61 Hooray for Santa Claus

There's a version by the punk band Sloppy Seconds which was better than the original version.

The vomitous theme song from the timeless classic "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. Lyrics include : "He's round and fat, and by jiminy, he just fits down any chim-a-ney".

62 Christmas Wrapping

A lot of Christmas songs are worse than this one. - BobG

I love this song

63 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"?!

64 The Twelve Pains of Christmas - Bob Rivers & Twisted Radio & Bob Rivers

This song is hilarious! What is this doing on here?

This song is terrible.

Love this song. Should not be on this list.

This is bad it's so annoying it's the oppsoite of 12 days of Christmas

65 Poo-Choo Train

Lets not talk about this.

Terminally stupid.

66 Silent Night - Pentatonix

I hate this song because the words don't match with the music.
For example: It is supposed to say "round yon virgin mother (one person) and child" but the music is written as "round yon virgin -pause- mother and child" three people.

Not agreeing, but I suggest the first commentor listen to the german version. It's not a great but literal translation.

69 Grinch 2000 - Busta Rhymes & Jim Carrey
70 Changes - 2pac

How is this Christmas and how is this the worst? - 445956

71 Jingle Bells

Why is jingle bells on this list?

You mean the "jingle bells batman smells robin laid an egg" one? - NoOreoForU

72 Last Christmas

Actually, I do think this is a nice Christmas song to listen to! She was with one boyfriend found a nicer man in her life and left her boyfriend for a PERFECT Christmas to be with someone who loved her more and she'd be happier all round. If you can imagine being together but not in love and being with someone and happy and it (Christmas) is the season to be jolly. So, listen to the words while imagining being in an unhappy RELATIONSHIP. and you meet a very nice person -he/she makes you happy -would that not make your Christmas while the other person's HEART!

Who could possibly like this song? "Last Christmas I gave you my heart / But the very next day you gave it away / This year to save me from tears / I'll give it to someone special..." Where to begin? Whiny topic, crappy rhymes, dippy tune, moronic message. "Oh, someone SPECIAL! That's what I've been doing wrong! " Dude, let me get this straight. Someone gave YOUR heart to a third party without permission? And you think you still have one to give again this year? What kind of crazy organ donor clinic do you run?

This has nothing to do with Christmas other than the word "Christmas" is said in the the song. Terrible and should be removed from all radio stations. Garbage.

How to write a Christmas song? Put the word Christmas in the middle of some vaguely rhyming goblelygook, sing on repeat, $$$.

73 All I Want for Christmas Is You

Once upon a time in my life, I liked this song, until I learned to drive and listened to the radio...

It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't the single-most overplayed song at Christmastime. I can't stand to hear it now. - BKAllmighty

I love all of mariah Carey songs

74 Happy Xmas (War Is Over)

While I agree with much of the tripe on the list, to leave this one out of a Top 10 worst is an unforgivable omission. This song is completely intolerable to me, I simply want to blast the radio with a double barrel 12 gauge when it comes on. It takes this horrid, superior, preachy tone, tops it off with a most insincere sounding "And so Merry Christmas..."; everything about reeks of John Lennon at his "I know better than everyone else" peace hippy stage. "War is over, if you want it..." (Slaps forehead) Man! Why didn't I think of that! Stupid travesty, and he involved kids to boot. What a jerk.

Here, I disagree. Taylor is a decent singer but her fanbase praise her like if she was the only good singer. Swifties also bashes anyone who critics Taylor, even if it's something as innocent as "Taylor isn't great". I am fine if they love her, but COME ON! Everyone has their opinions! - Billyv

I like this song. Great job John Lennon!

Great song musically (one of the best Christmas songs ever, minus the lyrics); however the self-righteous lyrics bring this down many notches. John Lennon's delusion that he was some kind of a Gandhi figure is really annoying when the delusion makes its way into lyrics.

This is THE stupidest Christmas song. It makes no sense, and only applies after a war
