Many of us love Holiday music. For some, waiting until the week of Christmas is what you do. Or others, As soon as Thanksgiving ends, your playlist is filled with Holiday tunes and you’re ready to rock them at any moment!

I think what makes holiday songs so fun and special for listeners is the fact that many of them are inspiring. They touch us….move us…..maybe even pick us up when we’re feeling like garbage. There are also fun ones that provide and outlet for us to feel like kids again. The way we were when we came down the stairs early in the morning and headed for the tree to see if Santa left us our favorite toy or video game!
For those of us with kids, it’s also pretty cool that so many songs have lasting appeal. Whether they are the traditional originals or new hip covers, it’s fun to share the happiness a Holiday tune provides with our children.

And of course, what Christmas party is complete without holiday tunes. Don’t forget DHA will be bringing you our Non-Stop Rockin’ Christmas to keep the party going! So, keep it locked on your favorite station to hear your Christmas favorites.
I thought what might be fun today was to take a look at some cool Christmas tunes from rocking bands that you might not be as familiar with. Whether it’s their own spin on a holiday classic or a brand new entry into the Christmas catalog, maybe one of these will make your playlist this season and get you either feeling positive and hopeful….or just like a kid again. Maybe even both!!!

With so many, and I do mean sooooooooo many holiday songs to choose from, this is just a really small list of some cool ones to check out. I invite you to go out and find your own favorites. And again, keep 105.5 WDHA on your radio or smart speaker for our Non-Stop Rockin’ Christmas.
Here’s some cool tracks that might make your holiday playlist:

  • O HOLY NIGHT - WEEZER

    Starting of slow and mellow, this one gets the Weezer treatment and it feels so good!

  • ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTAMS IS YOU - MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE

    It’s hard to keep that edge while trying to have fun at the same time.  Hell, it’s even harder to cover Mariah Carey, but MCR manage to do a bang up job!

  • CHRISTMAS TIME (DON'T LET THE BELLS END) - THE DARKNESS

    This is just a fun band.  They have such a cool sound at this one was released near the peak of their popularity – it sounds awesome!

  • JINGLE BALLS - KORN

    Alright, so this one isn’t as fun.  But you at least have to hear KORN do a death metal version of this classic.  Unique to say the least!

     

  • RUN RUDOLPH RUN - LEMMY, BILLY GIBBONS, DAVE GROHL

    Yep, it’s as fun as it sounds.  With that raspy voice and cool drumming from Grohol – this one is a great rendition of an already awesome Christmas tune!
