It's probably the only bad thing about Christmas....the awful music.
Christmas is a great time of year full of good food, holidays, presents and plenty of quality time with family and friends.
It puts everyone in a good mood, so for musicians they always seem to try in to tap into these emotions as fuel for the hackneyed 'Christmas song'.
For some reason, a lot of musicians just don't get it right. Maybe it's a cash grab or it's the cheesy sentiments or maybe there's just too much rum in the egg-nog, either way, Christmas music sucks.
So for your enjoyment, here's some of the worst ever Christmas music... ho ho ho.
Billy Idol - Jingle Bell Rock
It's like that scene out of Love Actually where Bill Nighy's ageing rocker character makes a christmas song. Except without all the sexy women. So basically it's just a sad old rock star singing a Jingle Bells. Come on Billy, you're better than this.
Gary Glitter - Another Rock n' Roll Christmas
Ok so Gary Glitter isn't necessarily the greatest artist, but the English glam star sure did a number on Christmas with this doozy.
Gary Glitter - "Another Rock n' Roll Christmas": 37smokeybear
New Kids On The Block - Funky, Funky, Xmas
Some how, "funky" and "xmas" just don't seem to work, despite how many times you say it.
New Kids On The Block - "Funky, Funky, Xmas": LINDA KNIGHT PERU
Cyndi Lauper - Christmas Conga
Wow Cyndi. No-one is having fun with your "Christmas Conga". Sounds like a track of a euro-dance party mix album.
Cyndi Lauper - "Christmas Conga": Khanê Abel
The Cheeky Girls - Have A Cheeky Christmas
At least the visual are good. Just turn the sound down..wayyyyyy down.
The Cheeky Girls - "Have A Cheeky Christmas": RememberTheCDSingle
Sufjan Stevens - Christmas Unicorn
Ok so Sufjan Stevens is quite well respected as a quirky indie dude but this track was way off the edge of "quirky" and "indie" into the obscure ironic hipster zone. Sorry Sufjan, if that even is your real name.

Jose Feliciano - Feliz Navidad
So modern popular Christmas songs are terrible in all countries?! Good to know.
Jose Feliciano - "Feliz Navidad": ognet
Olivia Newton-John & John Travolta - I Think I Like It
Oh please hell no!
