So, I’ll be the first to admit that Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is both infectious and obnoxious depending on the mood I’m in – but literally, this woman makes money every time Thanksgiving is over until December 26 all by having a song monopoly when it comes to iconic Christmas jams of the ’90s.
And while, yes, that might be a good enough reason to add it to your holiday playlists, we here at ACRONYM would like to provide a little more variety. So it is our honor and privilege to offer up 6 alternatives (and one really awkward cover) to throw off your coworkers, freak out your parents, or to just dance naked to while eating Candy Canes.
You know… Because that’s something people do to celebrate Christmas.
For the Alternative crew | Radiohead’s “Creep”
You’re just like an angel. Your skin makes me cry.
For the Emo in your life | My Chemical Romance’s “Welcome To The Black Parade”
For when you want to Superman dat hoe | Soulja Boy’s “Crank Dat”
When you don’t want Christmas to end | Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now”
I’m having such a good time. I’m having a ball!
When you want a little spooky with your sweet | Marilyn Manson’s “The Beautiful People”
Santa is beautiful too, you know.
When you want to put Lil’ Baby in a Spiral | Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.”
Bitch, be jolly.
And… Well… If you’d just rather have an ear-splitting cover of it, here’s this:
I mean, this caption fits here too…? YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!
Music to your ears right?
We are all the Grinch if you really think about it.
