8 Christmas Songs That Are Absolute Bangers
When raging this holiday season, don’t count out Christmas tunes, because some of them are absolute bangers. They’ve got it all, from high notes that bring tears to your eyes to violin sections that make you feel light-headed to choral arrangements that make you want to sh*t your heart out your butt. Get turnt and get into the spirit of Christmas with these eight classic Christmas bangers.
1. Good King Wenceslas
Idk y’all, this song just gets me raging. All I want is for everyone to sing this with me like we’re in a medieval choir or something.
2. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
This is the only Christmas song I can think of that name checks Satan. Now that’s f*cking metal. I once went on a cruise when I was seven (go ahead, be jealous, I am) and they had karaoke. Nobody else wanted to sing, so I sang “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” four times in a row until they made me stop. Rude.
3. Carol of the Bells
This song is always good but the version by Trans-Siberian Orchestra is the tits. This is the song the super cool house in your town programs their Christmas lights to. Ding dong, bitch.
4. Silent Night
All versions of “Silent Night” are good (well, maybe not all, but I’m being generous. It’s Christmas), and this version by The Temptations is extra tasty.
5. O Holy Night
The part where the song talks about falling on your knees… you know what it’s talking about. Falling on your knees and giving the sweet lord Jesus a bl… essing. For real though, when the song gets to that part, your stomach should hurt from how f*cking good this song is.
6. The First Noel
Don’t be afraid of listening to the David Archuleta version!! It’s okay to listen to Christmas carols by former American Idol contestants. Half the Christmas carols on YouTube are sung by former American Idol contestants.
Written in 1984 by Leonard Cohen, this relatively new song has become a Christmas classic because it is a flat-out BANGER. We’re talking the kind of banger that makes you cry and feel alive all at the same time.
8. Jingle Bell Rock
I mean, the plastics are never wrong. This is the only Christmas song I know of with an official Mean Girls-approved slutty dance, so you know it’s good.
