Check out 12 of Billboard’s favourite punk rock Christmas songs under.

1. The Dickies, “Silent Night”

This ’70s punk model of "Silent Night" is something however silent. The Dickies made positive of that by including killer guitar strains, busting out some shaky vocals and topping off the tune with a “silent night time!” chant.

2. My Chemical Romance, “All I Want for Christmas Is You”

The authentic "All I Want for Christmas is You" is iconic — however should you're in search of one thing slightly extra angsty and determined, that is it. MCR's rendition of the Mariah Carey basic is chock-full of blaring guitars and rock 'n' roll emotions.

three. August Burns Red, “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”

Don't be fooled by the joyful, care-free opening: this tackle "Rudolph" is extra like the reply to, "What wouldn’t it sound like if ol' purple nostril joined a steel band?" That loopy double-kick drum motion places this tune one large leap forward of the unique music synonymous with the animated basic. 

four. The Vandals, “Oi To The World”

This tune by the basic Orange County, California lifers isn’t simply the extraordinary model of “Joy to the World” — quite, it’s an authentic tongue-in-cheek vacation punk anthem. No Doubt helped popularize the music with their cowl, which, in fact, occurred means earlier than Gwen Stefani was singing jazz-laced Christmas pop.

5. Bad Religion, “White Christmas”

If you're in search of a full-rock Christmas album, you're in luck, as a result of BR made one, and that is certainly one of its crowning tracks. This "White Christmas" rendition calls for a highlight. It's extra just like the factor individuals scream to at a live performance quite than play within the background at a vacation get together.

6. Blink-182, "I Won’t Be Home For Christmas”

This is the Christmas music for individuals who don't like Christmas songs (or vacation traditions generally, for that matter). If you need somebody to really feel pissed off concerning the season alongside you, Blink's obtained your again.

7. Relient Okay, “12 Days of Christmas”

Relient Okay smashed the world with a model of "12 Days of Christmas" that begs the query we've all been asking: "What's a partridge, and what's a pear tree?" This sincere, guitar-driven jam says it how it’s. "I can guess these are horrible presents to get," frontman Matt Thiessen admits between the infinite refrains.

eight. American Hi-Fi, Mike Herrera "Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)"

American Hi-Fi and the  MxPx frontman teamed as much as flip up this basic. The drumming is severe (and tremendous quick) whereas the passionate "Baby, please come house" cry is dripping with anxious emotion.

9. Rise Against, “Making Christmas”

Technically, this one's not a real Christmas music (it's extra like a holiday-hinting Halloween music), however with teams like Pentatonix lately including it to their Christmas albums, we figured it may make the checklist. Rise Against channeled all their power (and a few screaming) into this cowl from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas.

10. Thousand Foot Krutch, “Jingle Bell Rock”

You've heard "Jingle Bell Rock" earlier than, however you've positively by no means heard it like this. This model might boast the identical lyrics as Bobby Helms' 1957 basic, however the melody (and blaring guitars) are nowhere shut. Get prepared for some informal headbanging.

11. Issues, "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays"

*NSYNC has obtained some competitors. Issues' model of "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" leans slightly extra on the screamo facet and rather less on the boy band one. That being stated, it's nonetheless obtained these jingle bells to maintain that Christmas cheer going.

12. The Ramones, "Merry Christmas (I Don’t Wanna Fight Tonight)"

No punk rock Christmas checklist can be full with out The Ramones. This get-over-it basic crashed the get together in 1989 and has been pumping up each vacation season since; "'Cause Christmas ain't the time for breaking one another's coronary heart."
