Spiritually speaking, anyone know any good alternative Christmas songs?

Please don't think I mean alternative rock.I mean alternative to crappy carols.

So far all I have are these:

The Vandals(also a No Doubt cover)-Oi to the World

Blink 182- I Wont Be Home for Christmas

Mystery Science Theater- Patrick Swayze Christmas

Update:

Dave Matthews Band?*shudder*

    I suggest:

    Dave Matthews Band "Christmas Song"

    Nancy LaMott "Just in Time for Christmas"

    Nancy LaMott "All Those Christmas Cliches"

    _____

    Oh, and if you're willing to venture into the classical realm, you'll find an amazing assortment and variety of Christmas songs.

    All the John Rutter carols, carol arrangements by Benjamin Britten or his "Ceremony of Carols," David Wilcox, Charles Ives, not to mention Bach and Handel.

    And check out Morton Lauridsen's "O Magnum Mysterium" or "O Nata Lux" for a truly sublime experience.

    Then there is the Trans-Siberian Orchestra - they have some great arrangements and original music, as well.

    In 2006 Bath & Body works released a Christmas CD titled "The Perfect Christmas"to benefit the Make A Wish Foundation. It's a 2 disc compilation that includes classics and remakes from new artists. I would check the net and see if you could find a used one. I absolutely love mine and listen to it year around, not just at Christmas!!

    Good Luck In Your Search!!!!

    Christmas at ground zero

    and

    The Night Santa Went Crazy - Weird Al Yankovic

    Bob and Doug MacKenzie's 12 Days of Christmas is pretty funny, and I just love "Snoopy's Christmas" too.

    Try the Trans Siberian Orchestra's "Mad Russian" and "Nutcracker Suite". Very good, and it's not what you'd expect.

    well, it is not rock but an independent band: Bright Eyes, they released in 2002 A Christmas Album where can find familiar christmas songs with that indie-vibe

    If you don't want to listen to according to you (crappy carols), then turn the knob off!

    Those Carols represent what the season is all about. You could go into hibernation or just continue working as if (CHRISTmas is not there) for you it seems it does not exist. So there should be no problem.

    Do you have the same concerns with Halloween or Valentine's day?
