I have lost a playlist I once had, called Anti-Carols. It was for when I was working at a department store and got sick of carols. I am now sick of carols once more (for other reasons). I would like to remake this list, with any of your help. Basically any song about winter or Christmas which, instead of extolling the virtues of a "winter wonderland" or whatnot, is either depressing, angry, sad, or whatever.

The only song I remember was The Pogues - Fairytale in New York.

No list would be complete without Weird Al's The Night Santa Went Crazy.

Although, this may not go down too well in a department store.

Each year my freind in DIH puts together an anti xmas album (this years is out soon) but links to the previous 6 years can be found here:

sorry for the lazy link. but suggest you check out the MAN tracks. biter, twisted and perverse is their forte.

You know...I never really felt that Fairytale of New York was that's a great song though! :D

You mention that song but not Christmas at Ground Zero? For shame.

Also, what about that song "The Christmas Shoes"?

Tom Lehrer's "A Christmas Carol" is a brilliant parody of Christmas carols. Example quote: "angels we have heard on high, tell us to go out and BUY!"

Hollywood Undead- Christmas In Hollywood.

It's probably appropriate.

In the classical realm, one shouldn't forget Schubert's song cycle Die Winterreise ("Winter's Journey"), which is probably the most monotonically depressing work I know.

Pedro the Lion-God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

His version just gets more and more depressing with each line. The quality isn't that great, but I love this song.

Don't forget this guy, who made an entire Christmas parody album, which makes fun of Christmas, carols, and sometimes even its own songs. It's not exactly angry...but it does have songs about greedy children, horrible fruitcake, a tax-dodger stuck in jail for Christmas, etc. And of course, this.

And if you thought that was weird, brace yourself.

?Anti-carol - Paul Simon's Silent Night/Seven O'Clock News.

It doesn't suit your purposes, though, being essentially still a traditional Christmas Carol.

Tom Lehrer's Christmas Carol is a must have for this sort of thing.

One of the guys on here plays piano and they've done a few Evil Christmas carols.
Worth a listen and if you register to the site for free you can download them as an mp3 I believe.
