List Rules Vote up the Christmas songs that bring out the Grinch in you.

Christmas songs are a special kind of music that attracts artists from rock, pop, country, and every other genre. And, just like any other type of music, for every hit song, there are countless duds; so, we present you with the worst Christmas songs of all time.

The entries on this list aren't the most hated Christmas songs because they're overplayed, though many of them are indeed overly-popular, cheesy Christmas songs. From funny Christmas songs, like "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas," to downright depressing ones, like "Please Daddy (Don't Get Drunk on Christmas)," these unfortunate jingles will round out any 2019 playlist of the worst Christmas songs. In addition to awful original Christmas music, this list also includes the worst Christmas song covers, like the Pussycat Dolls' spin on "Santa Baby" and the Basshunter remix of "Jingle Bells" that absolutely nobody asked for. 

What do you think is the worst Christmas song of all time? Vote up the worst Christmas songs, vote down the ones you think are good, and add any that you think we may have missed.
