The 16 Greatest Rock ‘N’ Roll Christmas Songs [VIDEO]

‘Rolling Stone’ has put together a list of The Greatest Rock ‘N’ Roll Christmas Songs. There are 16 of them . . . but not all of them are “rock ‘n’ roll.”

Here’s the list, which doesn’t appear to be in any particular order:

“Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”, Darlene Love (1963)

 

U2 also has a famous version of this one.

“Happy Xmas (War Is Over)”, John Lennon (1971)

“Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”, Bruce Springsteen (1985)

“All I Want For Christmas Is You”, Mariah Carey (1994)

“Little Saint Nick”, The Beach Boys (1963)

“Run Rudolph Run”, Chuck Berry (1958)

“The Chanukah Song”, Adam Sandler (1994)

“Frosty the Snowman”, The Ronettes (1963)

“Do They Know It’s Christmas?”, Band Aid (1984)

“Wonderful Christmastime”, Paul McCartney (1979)

“Jingle Bell Rock”, Bobby Helms (1957)

“The Night Santa Went Crazy”, “Weird Al” Yankovic (1996)

“Christmastime for the Jews”, (???) Darlene Love (2005)

I’ve never heard this one. I couldn’t even find it by Darlene Love. This is the only version I could find:

“Christmas in Hollis”, Run-D.M.C (1987)

“Christmas in Harlem”, Kanye West (2010)

“The Christmas Waltz”, She & Him (2011)

This is actress Zooey Deschanel’s band…
