    Hey everybody, on there used to be an annual list of holiday songs by bands from the scene, either covers or originals. With the time of holidays upon us, I figured we could start something like that up again. Feel free to post various Christmas and holiday songs you guys have accrued over the years, as well any new ones that come out. I'll do my best to get them all on the OP as a list and hopefully get a Spotify/Apple Music playlist going.

    I'll start us off with some, please give me some more:

    Valencia - "Father Christmas"
    Jimmy Eat World - "Last Christmas"
    Blink 182 - "I Won't Be Home For Christmas"
    Blink 182 - "Happy Holidays You Bastards"
    Fall Out Boy - "Yule Shoot Your Eye Out"
    All Time Low - "Merry Christmas Kiss My Ass"
    My Chemical Romance - "All I Want For Christmas Is You"
    A Day To Remember - "Right Where You Want Me To Be"
    The Wonder Years - "Christmas At 22"
    Man Overboard - "Decemberism"
    Good Charlotte - "Christmas By The Phone"
    The Used - "Alone This Holiday"
    MxPx - "Punk Rawk Christmas"
    MxPx - "Christmas Night Of The Living Dead"
    Simple Plan - "Christmas List"
    No Doubt - "Oi To The World"
    Fountains Of Wayne "I Want An Alien For Christmas"
    The Ramones - "Merry Christmas"
    Set Your Goals - "Reset (Holiday Version)"
    Something Corporate - "Forget December"
    Gatsby's American Dream - "Christmas Time Is Here"
    Matchbook Romance - "I'll Be Home For Christmas"
    Acceptance - "Happy XMas (War Is Over)"
    Punchline - "Icicles"
    Saosin - "Mookie's Last Christmas"
    The Format - "Holly Jolly Christmas"
    Spitalfield - "It's Cold Out There"
    Hot Rod Circuit - "Happy XMas (War Is Over)"
    Haste The Day - "O' Come Emmanuel"
    Scary Kids Scaring Kids - "What A Wonderful World"

    It's chaos. Be kind. Prestigious

    There's a four-way emo Christmas split done a few years ago. I haven't listened to it yet, but it's a thing:

    You Blew It! - Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree
    Dikembe - All I Want for Christmas is You
    Have Mercy - Deck the Halls
    Kittyhawk - Silver Bells

    Also, this is a classic:

    Old 97s just released a Christmas album of 9 originals and 4 traditionals. Of course I haven't listened yet because it isn't Christmas season
