Yes, This Is Christmas Music!

I like a lot of genres of music and have over 19,000 songs in my iTunes library. But I guess I have always liked the harder edged stuff the most, even when I was a kid. 

I always break out the Christmas playlist right around Thanksgiving and listen to it through the New Year. Over the years, I have found a few Christmas songs that aren't your typical versions - they are hard rock versions and have a little more "crunch" to them.

Here's a list of some of my favorite rockin' Christmas songs and albums. Admittedly, they are not for everyone but some of you may enjoy them if you want to hear Christmas music with a harder edge!
