Christmas Favorites Alternative Special Playlist

In our final holiday special, it’s appropriate that we feature some styles of Christmas music that typically go off the radar of most people. Both in alternative music as well as in theme, this special will rock around the Christmas tree. Punk from MXPX, indie alternative from Death Cab, CrossTie, and Emery are among the great picks. And there’s a solid tune to close everything out from Weird Al. Enjoy!
