Published Dec 23, 2010Let's face it -- Christmas can be pretty damn annoying sometimes. Each year, we have to endure a month (or more) of gaudy decorations, rampant consumerism and cloyingly cheerful songs. If you're feeling sick of the holiday season, here are a few tunes to listen to that ought to help you vent your frustration. These songs range from mopey to violent to self-righteous to downright crude. Peace and good will? Screw that.
Ten Songs to Spoil Your Christmas Cheer:
