Set Your Christmas Tree On Fire and Rock Out To These Metal Covers of Christmas Classics



Page 3 of 5

Smashing Pumpkins


Alright, alright, you got us. This is definitely not a metal song, but it is a sort of slowly and almost depressing cover of “Christmastime” by The Smashing Pumpkins. It almost sounds like it could be happy but, giving Billy Corgans history of well, um, darker lyrics, we’re having a hard time believing he’s stoked that it’s, you know, Christmas.


“Jingle Balls”

Lol, remember this CLASSIC? What’s sort of hilarius about this tune is that it’s Korn basically doing an uncharastically doom metal version of “Jingle Bells.” Jonathan Davis should do more low growling Christmas joints for sure. Enjoy.
