12 Most Ridiculous Christmas Songs

bcandmerchxmas

This year, instead of bringing you the most crunk Christmas songs, we have decide to give you the most ridiculous. These tracks range from songs about a gathering of pimps to a murderous cowboy Santa Claus. If you’re sick of hearing “Have Yourself a Merry Christmas” and “Let It Snow” every year, spice it up with some totally insane Christmas jams!

12. Run-DMC | “Christmas In Hollis”

This has been one of my all-time favorite Christmas songs since I was a kid. Something about finding Santa’s wallet sounded like a good time to me.

11. Ludacris | “Ludacrismas”

I feel like Luda could have gone completely HAM with this track if he hadn’t recorded it specifically for the steaming pile of Christmas crap that was Fred Claus. Still, throwing a thumping beat on top of “Here Comes Santa Claus” puts this track on the list of crunk Christmas tunes.

10. No Doubt | “Oi to the World”

This song was originally written by Orange County punkers The Vandals, but the No Doubt version is more up beat, even for a song about a punk and a skinhead agreeing to fight on a rooftop on Christmas Day. (Spoiler: They end up becoming chums and spend Christmas getting drunk together… you know, because it’s Christmas and all).

9. Outkast | “Player’s Ball”

A gathering of pimps on Christmas Day sounds like a fun time to me, no? One of Outkast’s early jams, it showcases their Southern laid-back flows and g-funk style.

8. Nate Dogg & Snoop Dogg | “Santa Claus Goes Straight To The Ghetto”

Man, I miss Nate Dogg. He could make any song sound like it belonged on the Dolemite soundtrack. This is a take on James Brown’s “Santa Claus Go Straight To The Ghetto,” albeit with a much more g-funk vibe, and Snoop’s nonsensical rhyming about Christmas stuff.

7. Dirty Boyz | “All I Want For Christmas Is To Get It Crunk”

The title says everything you need to know about this song.

6. Ying Yang Twins | “Sleigh Ride”

What’s really hilarious about this Ying Yang Twins Christmas banger is that you can tell they legitimately put thought into it. It has a nice, pop hook, and they really only ask Santa for peace on Earth (and rims for the Bentley, of course).

5. The 69 Boyz | “What You Want For Christmas”

This is exactly what you would expect from the group that did the 90s smash-hit “Tootsie Roll.” Seriously, it’s like the exact same beat and everything.

4. Pansy Division | “Homo Christmas”

Openly gay musician Jon Ginoli started Pansy Division in the early 90s because he was frustrated with a lack of openly gay indie artists. “Homo Christmas” is what I imagine Ginoli wrote to poke fun at people that didn’t understand homosexuality, especially with lines like “Licking nipples/Licking nuts/Putting candy canes/Up each other’s butts.”

3. The Killers | “Don’t Shoot Me Santa”

The idea of Santa reaping vengeance upon the wicked of the world is bad ass, if you ask me. If you really think about the lyrics, I’m pretty sure the kid in this song killed a bunch of other kids that would pick on him. I don’t know what darkness Brandon Flowers was getting into, but I’m just going to focus on the Santa being a gun-slinging hard ass.

2. Ying Yang Twins | “Deck Da Club”

A Christmas song for the strip club, you say? By the Ying Yang Twins? How could this NOT be utterly ridiculous? Take “Deck The Halls,” add banging bass, the notorious Ying Yang Twins “Ahhhh!” strung throughout, and terrible lines like “Deck the club with piles of money,” and you’ve got a Ying Yang Twins Christmas classic!

1. Eazy-E | “Merry Muthaphukkin Christmas”

A Dolemite introduction, followed by about 6 minutes of Eazy-E utterly destroying every Christmas carol with a medley about guns, hoes, money, cars, cop-killin’, and all other aspects of the gangsta lifestyle. Merry Muthafuckin’ Christmas, everyone!

Hoodie Allen | “Cake Boy”

Hoodie Allen released the first single off of his upcoming album, Crew Cuts (out Feb. 20th). “Cake Boy” bumps a simplistic beat and lyrics, much in the vein of The Cool Kids. I’m usually fully behind anything Hoodie does, but I have to say I miss his spit-fire rhymes. The video has hot girls and cake. Simple, yet effective.

[New Release] Hoodie Allen | “No Interruption”

Our boy Hoodie Allen is gearing up for his debut EP, All American, by dropping the first single, “No Interruption.” It has that typical Hoodie flow, but he’s incorporated an insanely infectious pop-hook. He even does a bit of singing (and it sounds pretty damn good), that reminds me of Childish Gambino.

The video has beautiful girls, a Dodge Charger doing donuts in a parking lot, and Hoodie in a suit, what else could you want? Apparently, everyone else thinks the same because, in 5 days, “No Interruption” has already garnered over 475,000 hits.

You can snag the single off iTunes, and don’t forget to snag Hoodie’s upcoming EP, All American, out April 10th!

Gorillaz feat. Andre 3000 & James Murphy | “DoYaThing” (Converse 3 Artists, 1 Song)

Converse has been doing the “3 Artists, 1 Song” thing for a few years now (last year’s “I’m A Goner” mixed Andrew W.K., Matt & Kim, and Soulja Boy, and 2010’s “All Summer” included Kid Cudi, Best Coast, and Vampire Weekend). It seems that each addition to the series gets a little more excelctic and bizarre, but this year’s really gets it right.

The blend of the Gorillaz typical strange beeps n beats with LCD Soundsystem brain-trust James Murphy and Outkast’s Andre 3000 spits out a head-bobbing ball of funk. The video is typical Gorillaz flair of CGI, 2D cartoon, and live-action elements, and really has nothing to do with the song other than “DoYaThing” is playing in the background.

Oh, and did I mention there is a FRIGGIN’ BOWL OF EARS at the 3:05 mark?! You may want to strap yourself in for this one.

The Weeknd | “D.D. (Dirty Diana)” (Michael Jackson Cover)

For anyone that knows me, you know I never pass up anything MJ, and The Weeknd’s cover of “Dirty Diana” is just fantastic. It’s darker and heavier than the original, and that’s really saying something. The Canadian producer reworks the tone to sound more like the track was recorded in an industrial steel mill. Hammers are banging, things are crashing into each other; it’s what you’d imagine if Michael Jackson had teamed up with Trent Reznor.

[NEW] Chiddy Bang | “Ray Charles”

Finally, another Chiddy Bang single from their long-awaited debut album, Breakfast. The album itself has a release date of February 28, 2012 (UGH.), but at least we get a little taste. “Ray Charles” has a fun, house-party soul feel to it, almost like some Atmosphere mixtape cuts (see: “Road to The Riches“). It was originally a freestyle Chiddy came up with after seeing his very high brother passed out on a couch with sunglasses on. That’s the kind of song inspiration we can get behind.

Fun Fun Fun Fest: Day 3

OBN III were frickin’ awesome. Nice mix of hard punk and Rolling Stone-esque rock.

That’s our Buddy Jason Smith!

Davila 666 sing in Spanish yet still have the punk kick.

Oh there you are Ted Leo. Got up on the side stage to watch, pretty baller.

Then it rained, and rained.
