    It's that time of year again. You can tell from the $@$%^^! MUZAK that's playing in so many stores. Let's buck the trend and list all the rock'n/metal Christmas songs we know so we can make a good playlist!

    I'll start with:

    Theocracy: Little Drummer Boy

    The Trans-Siberian Orchestra should suit your needs just fine. They have two full albums of Christmas music.

    Jumping on the bandwagon here...but TSO is the best I know of. (A great concert to see as well, if you get the chance)

    Yeah, I mean, TSO is the obvious. But I know there are some songs done by other bands. Another example would be DT's live version of Silent Night.

    two??? How about three:

    Christmas Eve and Other Stories
    The Christmas Attic
    The Lost Christmas Eve

    And for other cool Xmas discs, you can check into Merry Axemas 1 & 2. Guitar players from the a-list galore like Satriani, Vai, Morse, Johnson, Lifeson, Setzer, Beck, Lukather, Schon, Stevens, Sykes, Wylde...and many more!!

    Want to give it a go with some cool acoustic yule tunes, California Guitar Trio - A Christmas Album.

    The Merry Axe-mas collection is sweet. Steve Vai does "Christmas Time is Here."

    I am not a fan of TSO myself; I don't like their orchestration.

    Gary Hoey's "Ho Ho Hoey!" christmas collection, on the other hand, is awesome. That guy actually does some pretty impressive guitar work on there, in my admittedly uneducated opinion.

    They sure do! It's called Bah Humbug, and it kicks ass! Aside from that, like many others already mentioned, I too do a lot of Merry Axemas Vol 1 and 2 this time of year.

    Trans-Siberian Orchestra is the 1337357 of the 1377, hands down. They pwn all N00Bs. (sorry, on a N00B beating rampage)
