    The earlier reference to The Pogues reminded me of Bob Dylan's "Must Be Santa"... Rollicking fun Christmas diddy!

    You could get creative if you don't have piano. I was in a ska band and the horns and guitars played the melodies.

    Really anything from William Hung - Hung for the Holidays
  17. We're working up some Christmas stuff now. Jingle Bell Rock is fairly easy, and Elvis' Blue Christmas is a pretty cool tune. I believe the original is in Bb.

    The only Holiday tune I could think of that truly ROCKS is the superb Jewish folk song, HAVA NAGILA.

    If you do a vocal version, the lyrics are very easy to learn.

    But seriously. DICK DALE FTW

    I when I was in a gypsy jazz band we did What Child Is This?/Greensleeves with great success, I think it could easily be done as a rock instrumental. In fact We have a gig coming up and think I'll get my rock trio to work it up.
