Top 5 - Christmas Songs by Rock Stars

Today is traditionally not just the first shopping day for Christmas but also the day when most radio stations start playing Christmas tunes (although there are some out there that started playing them on November 1st- which really bugs me). Anyway - here are the top 5 Christmas songs by rocks stars in my estimation.

Fairytale of New York - The Pogues
2. Santa Claus is Coming to Town - Bruce Springsteen
3. Do They Know It's Christmas - Band Aid
4. Father Christmas - The Kinks
5.. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen - Bare Naked Ladies

Just missing the list - Little Drummer Boy - Bing Crosby and David Bowie.


  1. The only two that matter are Father Christmas and Fairy Tale of New York.

    Love em both, I think I'd give the nod to Father Christmas, but would never argue against the Pogues for anything.

  2. The Pogues are #1 by a wide margin

  3. I kind of like the Toten Hosen (as the Roten Rosen) cover of the Little Drummer Boy.
