Holiday Music Round Up (So Far)

Posted by on Thu, Dec 2, 2010 at 1:18 PM

It is officially the Christmas season and over the past couple days, a bunch of bands and musicians (and Mariah Carey) have released their new holiday songs. Here's what's out there so far—from the good, the bad, the dirty, and the sad—for those of you who just can't get enough holiday music.

(And for those of you who hate holiday music more than any other kind of music, I hid it all under the jump so you don't have to see all the jingle bells, snowflakes, Christmas lights, and santa hats—you're welcome).

Deer Tick - "Christmas All Summer Long"

Summer Camp - "Christmas Wrapping" (The Waitresses cover)

The Bitter Roots - "Warm With You"'

The Pipettes - "Santa's On His Way" (free download when you enter your e-mail address)

The Boy Least Likely To - "Christmas Isn't Christmas" (click to download via Stereogum)

Ben Folds and Mark Hoppus - "Happy Holidays, You Bastard":

The Killers - "Boots":

And speaking of the Boy Least Likely To, they reunited WHAM! Watch their video for the song "George and Andrew" at

2 and Each Note Secure partnered up to release a digital Christmas album featuring bands from Ohio. There's some pretty good stuff on here including "All I Want for Christmas (is an Afghan Whigs Reunion)".
