"Twinkle (Little Christmas Lights)" - JD McPherson:
"Christmas Must Be Tonight" - The Band:
Favorite Rock Xmas song................Father Christmas "give all the toys to the little rich boys"
Might take a little woodshedding.
The earlier reference to The Pogues reminded me of Bob Dylan's "Must Be Santa"... Rollicking fun Christmas diddy!
The Eagles version of “Please Come Home For Christmas.” Not rockin, but still rock:
Always wanted to hear an Irish/Rock band like maybe DropKick Murphy’s Cover this one.
Here's one of my favorites. Especially good for country bands.
The Little Drummer Boy - Daryl Steurmer
Nut Rocker, B Bumble and the Stingers
You could get creative if you don't have piano. I was in a ska band and the horns and guitars played the melodies.
Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Father Christmas
John Lennon - Christmas
A couple of favorites if it's a rockin' crowd.
Really anything from William Hung - Hung for the Holidays
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.
Otis Redding “Merry Christmas Baby”
