For our column Jams We Love, we're turning you onto the songs that keep us going every day. To get into the the Christmas music game, we put together a list of fairly weird holiday songs so you can give yourself a break from Mariah's "All I Want for Christmas Is You," and other seasonal standards. Enjoy!
1. Clarence Carter, "Back Door Santa"
2. Beck, "Little Drum Machine Boy"
A kind of Christmas-Hanukkah mashup, this epic, 7-minute track appeared on the Xmas compilation for alt-rock lovers, Just Say Noel.
3. T. Rex, "Christmas Bop"
4. Fear, "F**k Christmas"
Brevity is the key to timelessness in this 46-second anthem for Christmas haters everywhere.
5. Joe Pesci, "If It Doesn't Snow on Christmas"
If you like F-bombs and angelic choirs of children singing, this is the Christmas song for you.
6. Culturcide, "Depressed Christmas"
With a melody lifted directly from "White Christmas," this sullen paean to holiday repulsion will definitely appeal to all of 7x7.com's more nihilistic readers.
