Alright, so last year, we brought you 10 holiday songs you won’t hear on the radio (because seriously, how many pop covers do we need of Jingle Bells?*see footnote) Besides, punk covers and whatnot are so much better… with that being said, here’s some more songs you won’t hear on the radio!
5. Real Mckenzies – Pagan Holiday
Hey, we don’t want to leave anyone out. Maybe you’re not a Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa celebrator… here’s to the winter solace!
4. The Chinkees – Christmas
A little politically aware ska tune. Skank around the tree rudies!
3. The Vandals – Thanx For Nothing
Ever wake up on Christmas morning and say to yourself “gee, I really wish I had a bratty kid to listen to complain on this lovely holiday morning?” Just play this song, it’s cheaper than raising a kid, and more importantly, unlike a kid, you can shut it off when you’re done!
2. Atom and His Package – Snowshoe BBQ
This is for all you people in Boston, Midwest, other crappy location of the United States. Enjoy your snow suckers (and keep it out of philadelphia!)
1. Nicotine – Do They Know it’s Christmas?
Amazing punk cover of possibly my favorite christmas song.
Still not in the Holiday Spirit?

Holiday With the Vandals!
*Note: Most christmas songs on the radio are annoying, EXCEPT the Bruce Springsteen “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”, but that may just be hardwired in my NJ DNA.
