List Rules No one who has already put out a full Christmas/holiday album. EPs don't count. Live albums don't count. Living artists only.

It's the most wonderful time of the year: Christmas. Nothing beats sipping hot cocoa next to the fire, jamming out to your favorite Christmas music. However, there are plenty of us out there who'd love it a little more if one of our favorite artists put out a rockin' Christmas album. Sure, we have yule tide offerings from Elvis, Sinatra, and even the raspy ol' Bob Dylan, but surely everyone has one more item on their list each year. Perhaps it's a Lady Gaga Christmas album. Maybe it's Weezer. Whoever your favorite musicians are, wouldn't it be great if they were to put out a Christmas album to help you get into the spirit and spread holiday cheer? 

Check out the list of singers and musicians below and vote up those you'd most like to see drop a fire Christmas album. Who knows, maybe they'll catch wind and hit the studio.
