The 10 Worst Holiday Cover Songs Ever

It's the thought that counts, right?

Because they had the common decency to make original garbage, this list pardons holiday atrocities like New Kids on the Block's "Funky Funky Christmas" and "Last Christmas" by Wham! The ten "artists" on this list couldn't even be bothered to wrap their own turds to put under our collective Christmas tree. Instead, they had the audacity to wrap up another person's excrement and regift it to the public.

This week Rocks Off waded into the murky depths of holiday Internet radio stations, down the YouTube rabbit hole and into our own vinyl archives to bring you the very worst of the worst. Here are the ten most awful Christmas covers we could find.

Merry Christmas, and may God have mercy on your soul.
