Rob Halford – “O Holy Night”

Honestly, The Metal God could sing damn near anything, and we’d love it, but this cover is truly something else.

Nobody else seems to have uploaded this one, so here you go. Please refrain from flooding the comments with religious debates. Faithful, atheist - whatever. Just enjoy the music. Live and let live.

If anybody could make a Christmas cool, it was Tom Petty.

Twisted Sister – “Oh Come All Ye Faithful”

Elton John – “Step Into Christmas”

Elton John and Bernie Taupin are one of the greatest songwriting teams of all time, so when it came time to craft a Christmas song, they penned one of the best!

Elton John - Step Into Christmas

"Step Into Christmas" was released in 1973 and reached #1 on the Billboard Christmas Singles chart. During the instrumental break, Elton's lyricist Bernie Taupin can be seen "hitting" the gongs (actually played by percussionist Ray Cooper), after which Elton holds up his beloved Watford Hornets Football Club membership card.
