“Christmas Brings Me Down”—Sparks The Rescue

Sometimes Christmas sucks. We see people we don’t want to see. We break up. We go home. We are oftentimes forced to be “cheerful” when we really just want to be emo as fuck. Sparks The Rescue gets us. They really get us.


“Christmas Card”—Joyce Manor

Technically, this probably shouldn’t even be considered a true holiday track, per se, but it is damn good. Besides, the word “Christmas” is in the song title. Everybody wins.


“Christmas at 22”—the Wonder Years

This is the perfect acoustic track for sitting around the bonfire after a Christmas meal. Plus, it mentions frozen pizza, so it really doesn’t get more pop punk than that.


“Alone This Holiday”—the Used

Go on and dive into this song when you’re feeling lonely and blue this holiday season. Not like the Used makes us cry anyway …


“Won’t Be Home For Christmas”—Blink 182

The ultimate soundtrack for when you hate your hometown and all the people in it. Oh, wait—that’s an everyday pop-punk soundtrack. Either way, it wouldn’t be pop punk without Blink 182. So, if you hate the holidays or hate—well, everything—and still want to be a Grinch, turn the dial up on this one.


“Happy Holidays, You Bastard”—Blink 182

Okay, we included two Blink 182 songs because what would 12 songs of a pop punk Christmas be without the genre’s leading force and all their disgruntled pop-punk nuances? Not to mention this is arguably the best 42 seconds in all pop-punk history. Happy holidays!
