Now Christmas is our doorsteps, I thought I’d make a post suggesting some songs to suit the merry mood in a pop punk sorta way. Christmas has inspired many a gem in the past, and these five tracks ahead are just some of them.
1. Merry Christmas, Kiss My Ass – All Time Low – Find it on: Dirty Work – A Christmas classic already, it’s not particularly inspiring and motivating, but a Christmas song all the same – a song complaining about a summer romance which is this year’s winter blues, Merry Christmas, Kiss My Ass, with the end of the track coming from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation – you can find the video here.
2. Ho Ho Hopefully – The Maine – Find it on: ‘..And A Happy New Year’ – Now what seems a very old EP from this band, Ho Ho Hopefully is a sweet song and the single off their only Christmas EP – the song about wanting a girl for Christmas, Ho Ho Hopefully is an excellent alternative song, you can find the track here. In my opinion the EP is all brilliant particularly Mr Winter.
3. Yule Shoot Your Eye Out – Fall Out Boy – Find it on: Believers Never Die (Bonus Track) – Fall Out Boy’s Christmas song, is probably not the typical bright and sparkly song however it is a Christmas track and certainly deserving of a place on this list, the song being about, the best gift you could give Patrick is never talking to him ever again, it’s a really great song and you can check it out right now.
4. I Won’t Be Home For Christmas – Blink 182 – Find it On: Blink 182: Greatest Hits – The song is about snapping on Christmas ever and attacking carol singers, and was number one in Canada for five weeks, their only song song to chart in Canada – I Won’t Be Home For Christmas can be found here.
5. Old Mexico – The Summer Set – Find It On: What Money Can’t Buy – A song about wanting the girl to fall for for Christmas, Old Mexico is a not so typical song, as of course in the Desert of Arizona, snow is hard to come by. You can find Old Mexico on Youtube right here.
If you have any other suggestions, feel free to comment!
