Our 2017 list of Rock n Roll Christmas Tunes. Christmas is upon us once again and we’re feeling more and more festive each day. We’ve go our Rock ‘N’ Roll Christmas Tour in full swing. We’re having our well deserved Christmas party and there’s even a few mince pies floating around.

Below is a random step into rock n roll history, as some of these songs even we didn’t know existed., some are so obscure they’re not even on spotify, but we have them here for you all to view. 20. “Christmas Biscuits” Glen Hansard and Mark Geary 19.”White Christmas” Villagers This cover is part of a charity album featuring a wide range of Irish singers. The Album is called A Co- Present Christmas and is available to purchase on bandcamp<a href=”http://thecopresent.bandcamp.com/album/a-co-present-christmas-3″>A Co-Present Christmas by The Co-Present</a> 18. “Lonely This Christmas” Kodaline Kodaline never released this Christmas song but they recorded it live in 2014 for the British Garden Museum. 17. “Have yourself a merry little Christmas” Maria Doyle Kennedy This is also part of A Co- Present Christmas and is available to purchase here.
