    Merry Christmas, Slade, job done.

    Or if you want to depress everyone, I Believe in Father Christmas by Greg Lake.

    There's also Santa Claus by Throwing Muses. And again, more downbeat, Christmas Song by Jethro Tull.

    Other seasonal songs

    December Will Be Magic Again, Kate Bush - may not work for everyone's vocal talents

    December, All About Eve - nice quiet and louder sections in that one, and a bit of a guitar solo

    It's just Greg Lake. I think Carl and Keith got Chrismas off.

  5. If you have a female vocalist:


  6. Humbug, etc.

    In our 3 piece acoustic/electric band we are doing:
    Jingle Bell Rock--Brian Setzer
    God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen--Barenaked Ladies
    Blue Christmas---Elvis
    Under The Tree--Kelly Clarkson
    Rocking Around The Christmas Tree--Brenda Lee
    Run Rudolph Run--Bryan Adams
    Not all rockers...but are easy to put together quickly.

    That bass part really cooks, and is not as tricky as it initially sounds. I'm currently pursuading my band to do it, but it's an uphill struggle right now. Maybe next christmas...

    That said, it's hardly a rock tune so perhaps not a great suggestion for this thread.
