There’s only so many times you can listen to renditions of “White Christmas,” “Santa Baby” or “Silent Night” before going insane. And don’t make the argument that it’s only once a year, because if you’ve worked in retail, been shopping, watched TV or left your house between mid-November to early January, you’ve heard these songs enough times to fill half a lifetime.
Why don’t we listen to any modern, original Christmas music? Well, the problem is most contemporary Christmas music is pretty sickening — such as “Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas,” which is seriously a Christmas album by the “Duck Dynasty” cast.
So in order to put some newness in your holiday season this year, we put together a list of 20 contemporary original Christmas songs from rock, hip-hop and indie artists that don’t suck.
