During the holiday season, it feels impossible to escape the never-ending barrage of Christmas music. It can be torturous, but you can make the best of the holidays with these 10 Rock + Metal Christmas Songs That DON’T Suck.

Heavy metal is the devil’s music, even during Christmastime! King Diamond made sure to give fans a holiday anti-anthem with “No Presents For Christmas.” Obviously a dude wearing corpse paint, inverted crosses and pentagrams won’t be high on Santa’s “nice” list, so it was generous of King to give us fellow heathens a track to receive coal to.

Twisted Sister have a unique obsession with the holidays. After all, they recorded an entire Christmas album! Twisted put their own spin on holiday classics, transcribing songs like “Oh, Come All Ye Faithful” into the instrumental section of “We’re Not Gonna Take It.” But it works! And damn us all if the result isn’t glorious.

The world of punk rock has been inspired by Christmas in multiple ways. Bands like the legendary Ramones wrote the wonderfully sappy “Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight)” while hardcore legends FEAR took the alternate approach with “F—k Christmas.”
