PLAYLIST: 12 Rock Christmas Songs

Don’t know about you, but it isn’t the holidays without some great tunes!  With the 25th drawing near, we gathered some of our favorite Christmas tunes for your listening pleasure.  Some are covers of classics.  Some might be tunes you forgot about.  And some might just odd, like Henry Rollins’ “Twas The Night Before Christmas.”  Either way, enjoy. 

(Warning:  Some tracks contain NSFW language, which we think adds to the authenticity of the holiday season, but whatever.)
