As Mariah Carey was unfrozen for the holidays, traditional Christmas music has been constant. These old favorites are great, but after a while, they can lose a little steam. Not to mention the fact that they just don't rock. So, here are some Christmas tunes you can definitely turn up loud and proud, and might get you throwing the horns up for the holidays.

Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas and I love the vibe it creates with the songs we have all heard many times, for many years. We can all probably recite the lyrics to each of those traditional Christmas jams in our sleep.
