This spotify playlist is for the disillusioned, the drunk, the down and outs and the cynics who are a little bit sick of all the holiday cheer around christmas time. Yes, you cannot escape the holiday season. It’s frickin’ December, it’s 2010, it’s arsingly cold outside and all these cheery prats are out and getting all happy in your face.
Time to get a little payback with some sexy, festive, bah humbug, tongue-in-cheek, hard-rockin alternative XMas tunes.
You won’t find any sugar-sweet, bubblegum festive pop in this list, just a collection of holiday-themed (and some not so) tunes by some brilliant artists (with the exception maybe being The Pogues… oh yes, that’s on there too!)
You see, XMas tunes don’t need to be popular or bubblegum or highly irritating to be good. Helps if they are popular for the right reasons though.
Oh, and be warned, there is some swearing in a couple of the songs. Can’t say I didn’t warn you.
