Not the standard Christmas Songs?

So the fat man in red is almost here. What are some christmas songs that rock, are funny or not the norm.

The only one I can think of is Christmas In Hollis by Run DMC.

Brian Setzer- "Boogie Woogie Christmas" and "Dig That Crazy Christmas". They're real gone man, I mean really gone.

There's a real good parody of Black Sabbath's Iron Man. "I am Santa Clause"

Porky Pig singing Blue Christmas

I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas-Gayla Peevey

I've Got A Present For Santa-Sarah Taylor

Grandma Got Runover By A Reindeer-?

Santa Clause and his Old Lady-Cheech and Chong

Walking 'Round in Women's Underwear(to the tune of Winter Wonderland)

Couple of good rockers:
Springsteen-Santa Clause Is Coming To Town
Mellencamp-I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause

Worth a mention:
Greg Lake-Father Christmas
The Jethro Tull Christmas Album

He's seen too many Tim Allen movies.

Also, Grandma didn't get "runover", unless one of the reindeer left her sink on too long.

"Make it Home" - Juliana Hatfield

Not explicitly a Christmas song, but the feeling is there (and plus the bridge is reminiscent of "O Come All Ye Faithful".
