Are you looking to get in the Xmas mood but don't want to hear any wimpy stuff? Well, do I have a list for you!  In honor of the "12 Days Of Xmas", I've put together a list of "12 Xmas Songs That Don't Suck". So if the newest song on your Xmas playlist still mentions "figgy-pudding", then you might want to check this out.

 

So why this list?  It's just the ones I like.  My favorite is the Papa Roach and I still think the Kinks song "Father Xmas" is slammin'.  On the other hand I went with the Shinedown rendition of "Happy Xmas" because the production on the John Lennon original sounds a little stale.  Adelita's Way has a cool song on the list, but the released it before they blew up, so very few people know about it. Make sure you have a look at U2 from back in the day.  There's some instrumentals on the list and I have to warn you that Corey Taylor's (Stone Sour/Slipknot) is not only an ANTI-Xmas song, it has PLENTY of foul language.  Enjoy!
