Now that the holiday season is getting into its full shebang, there’s no reason that punk kids (and grown up punk kids) have to change the genre of music they listen to just to have a holly-jolly-effing Christmas. If punk rock has taught us anything, it’s that covers are the bomb diggity, and punk Christmas covers are just a darn good time. (Unless you don’t like Christmas music at all. Then I can’t help you. Oh, wait! Yes, I can!
My punk rock holiday playlist has some punk classics, like the Ramones ‘Merry Christmas, I Don’t Wanna Fight Tonight,’ and the Vandals ‘Oi To The World,’ along with a fun mix of holiday songs with a fun, punk twist. Must listens on the list? Be sure to check out My Chemical Romance doing ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ and the All American Rejects doing ‘Jack’s Lament’. You can’t really go wrong with Reel Big Fish’s ‘Little Drummer Boy’, either. The playlist also features Blink-182, Bowling For Soup, Weezer, Relient-K, and more. Rock on and happy holidays, everybody!
