Conquering The Holidays

Looking for some songs to help you rock around your tree?  Check out these nine tracks!

 

Queen – “Thank God It’s Christmas”

A reminder from Queen:  No matter what kind of year you’ve had, always look for the magic of the season.

 

Rob Halford – “O Holy Night”

Honestly, The Metal God could sing damn near anything, and we’d love it, but this cover is truly something else.

 

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – “Christmas All Over Again”

If anybody could make a Christmas cool, it was Tom Petty.


Slade – “Merry Xmas Everybody”

Try not dancing to this Christmas glam masterpiece!  WE DARE YOU!


Alice Cooper – “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”

Only Alice Cooper could make this cheery song a little scary.

 

Twisted Sister – “Oh Come All Ye Faithful”

Twisted Sister doesn’t veer too far from the source material but still manages to inject some edge into this Christmas favorite.

 

Lemmy Kilmister, Billy Gibbons & Dave Grohl – “Run Run Rudolph”

Oh, Lemmy…how we miss your growl!


The Beach Boys – “Little Saint Nick”

Christmas time meets the California coast, and it is just delightful!

 

Elton John – “Step Into Christmas”

Elton John and Bernie Taupin are one of the greatest songwriting teams of all time, so when it came time to craft a Christmas song, they penned one of the best!
