The Season's Upon Us by the Dropkick Murphys - What better way to kick-off a holiday playlist than with a group of aggressive Irishmen?
Merry Christmas Baby by Sister Hazel - If you aren't a fan of the sing-song type Christmas songs, then check out Sister Hazel's entire album. They have enough grit (but not too much) to make it feel like you aren't listening to cheesy Christmas music.
I Won't Be Home for Christmas by Blink 182 - Pop punk icons that are completely irreverent should record a Christmas song, right? Makes total sense. This is a fun one.
Oi to the World by No Doubt - Want more pop punk fun in your Christmas song? How about this one that really doesn't sound like a Christmas song at all?
All I Need is Love by Ceelo featuring The Muppets - More silly holiday cheer? Yes. But, is it a decent song? Yes.
Christmas Wrapping by Spice Girls -The original by The Waitresses is probably a better version, but it's a rare moment that I'm going to want to post the Spice Girls...so here it is.
Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Anberlin - This song has been covered by many...admittedly, most aren't too bad. You might have assumed we'd pick U2 because they'd be the most obvious choice for women who like rock music that grew up in the '80s and '90s. But, no. We picked Anberlin's.
Do They Know It's Christmas? by Band Aid - Speaking of the '80s, this song holds Jana's title of "the only Christmas song on the radio I don't turn off".
O Come All Ye Faithful/Oh Holy Night by Trans Siberian Orchestra - Trust me on this. If you ever have the opportunity to see this live, do it. Not kidding. If you don't get goosebumps multiple times in a TSO performance, well, then, I don't know what to say about that.
Happy XMas (War is Over) by Winger - You didn't think Jana & Erin would create this playlist without some hair bands, did you? Don't laugh at Winger. This is a good version.
Medley (Santa Clause is Coming to Town and Run Run Rudolph) by Bon Jovi - You didn't think Erin would have a hand in this playlist without Bon Jovi, did you? C'mon. It's a live clip, and Jon dances with Santa. What's not to love?
Please Come Home for Christmas by Jon Bon Jovi - Hey, Jon Bon Jovi and Bon Jovi (the band) are two different things. Plus, this is the sexiest Christmas video ever created.
Dominick the Donkey by Lou Monte - Because Jana allowed Erin two Christmas songs with Jovi in the artist, Erin has allowed Jana this song.
Christmas is the Time to Say I Love You by Billy Squier - Every time this comes on, I can't help myself, I sing, I sway, I want to say "I love you" to a loved one.
