Published Dec 15, 2015In decades past, ugly Christmas sweaters were items of shame — something that your aunt would give you that you'd have to begrudgingly wear on Christmas Day before stuffing it into a drawer where it would never be seen again. In recent years, however, they have turned into an ironic trend. Offices hold "ugly Christmas sweater parties," and people dive into bins at thrift stores to find exceptionally ghastly, hand-knit examples.
As you've likely already noticed, musicians have started cashing in on the trend by selling their very own ugly Christmas sweaters. From rappers to demonic metal groups, it seems like no one is too cool to start selling their own fuzzy, gaudy sweaters — the more badass the musician, the funnier their sweater becomes.
This holiday season, if you're hoping to show up to parties with the ugliest sweater of them all, here are some excellent options: these are the best music-themed Christmas sweaters we've found around the web. These will allow you to show off your festive spirit and rep your favourite artists all at the same time.
