Well, basically these are just the usual suspects, but they have their charms.
The Band – “Christmas Must Be Tonight”
Few rockers want to actually sing about Jesus. The Band did and made it sound honest and beautiful… never cheesy.
The Pretenders – “2000 Miles”
Another Christmas rock song rarity… it's actually pretty good.
Bruce Springsteen – “Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town”
I affectionately dub this “The ‘Freebird’ of Christmas Rock.” It’s ALWAYS on the radio, but the thing is, I always enjoy it.
Queen – “Thank God It’s Christmas”
The zenith of cheesy Christmastime rock.
John Lennon – “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” Little known fact: Lennon was actually singing about The War of 1812. He was a very confused man.
Tomorrow: "A Very Hipster Christmas!"
