At least this song is semi-happy, though. It's not gouge-your-ears-out bad, but it's borderline.
4. "White Christmas" by Twisted Sister
No one asked for this, Twisted Sister. Why'd you do it? To spread cheer? To capitalize on the growing sales of holiday music? After pondering this for a few hours, I still don't know the answer.
The first mistake of the song is lead singer Dee Snider walking into a rehearsal saying, "Why don't we give Christmas music a shot? 'White Christmas' really fits our '80s hair metal style."
5. "The Christmas Shoes" by Newsong
Does including this one make me a bad person? Probably. But I can't stand listening to a song about a kid who spends his mother's final hours of life not with her, but in a shopping line.
It's even worse when the narrator thinks to himself, "I knew I caught a glimpse of heaven's love/When he thanked me and walked out/I know God sent that little boy/To remind me just what Christmas is all about." What can this mean? Someone's mom got cancer just so this guy wouldn't be depressed on Christmas?
The lyrics aren't my only problem, either. It's sung like a Nickelback or Creed style song, and that's just a crime towards humanity.
