'Tis the season to be jolly—dammit! 'Tis also the season to grit your teeth as you endure the never-ending soundtrack of mind-numbing holiday muzak.
We've done our best to unearth enough seasonal tunes to keep your inner Grinch in check. First we put you up on Bill Adler's Christmas Jollies. Then we hit you with the 25 Best Christmas Albums of all time.
You've heard the best—now here's the rest.
Nothing says cheap Holiday exploitation like a ridiculous Christmas record. You see them all the time in bargain bins, eBay listings, and late-night TV spots. But how much is too much and just how bad do they really get?
To find out, we hit up our peoples at the Archive of Contemporary Music and asked them to do some serious digging. From Danish metal bands to superheroes and porn stars—who hasn't cranked out a questionable Christmas song? But the real question is: How can we make them stop?
