My Favorite Christmas Cover Songs

I’m not a huge fan of Christmas music, but every now and then a rock band takes a Christmas classic and makes it bearable. Lol. So here are my top 5 favorite Christmas covers.

Small Town Titans: “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch”

Originally performed by Thurl Ravenscroft

This is the best of the best. His voice, the arrangement, that dirty bass intro… Perfection.

Shinedown: “Happy X-Mas (War Is Over)”

Originally performed by John Lennon

I love this song anyway, but Brent Smith singing can take any song to another level.

Throne of Eden: “Christmas Canon Rock”

Originally performed by Trans-Siberian Orchestra

Trans-Siberian Orchestra: “Carol of the Bells”

Original performed by students at Kyiv University in December 1916; music composed by Mykola Leontovych and lyrics written by Peter J. Wilhousky

From Ashes to New: “All I Want for Christmas is You”

Originally performed by Mariah Carey
