Songs To Annoy You This Holiday Season

This is the time of year that either has you humming about a one-horse open sleigh or bah-humbugging the various versions of "Jingle Bells" you've heard in stores, on hold and in commercials. Wherever you reside on the Christmas cheer spectrum, we have something to annoy even those who wear reindeer sweaters.

Jim Nayder, host of Chicago Public Radio's The Annoying Music Show!, joins Weekend Edition Saturday host Scott Simon for a roundup of truly grating songs for your holiday season. Included this year is a heavy-metal carol from Twisted Sister, an Afro-Caribbean Hanukkah jam and more.
