* [[http://www.bobrivers.com/#v0c7 Bob Rivers and his comedy group]] are arguably the masters of Christmas parody songs with their series of at least five ''Twisted Christmas'' albums from 1988 on, including such memorable titles as "The Twelve Pains of Christmas", "Wreck the Malls", "The Chimney Song", "Hey! You! Get Off of My House", and "Chipmunks Roasting on an Open Fire".

* Gordon Lightfoot's "Song For A Winter's Night" isn't a Christmas song per se, but artists like Blue Rodeo and Sarah [=McLachlan=] have covered it on Christmas albums, even though the song is about missing a lost loved on a dark and cold winter night and has no festive aspects whatsoever.

* Dark Sarah's "A Grim Christmas Story" starts out sounding like a love song written for a rather grim orchestration of "The Twelve Days of Christmas". Then on the second day of Christmas, the singer's husband lies to her, so she kills him and dumps the body in the sea. Then on every day afterwards she kills someone else, [[CrimeAfterCrime usually because they're asking about someone she killed in a previous verse]], until the seventh day, when she poisons some policemen who had realized that she was the common thread in all the disappearances that had been going on, then fleeing the area, leaving eight dead bodies in her wake.

* Paul Simon and SteveMartin did something similar to Music/SimonAndGarfunkel's "Seven O'Clock News/Silent Night" for ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', with Simon singing "Silver Bells" as Martin gives a depraved monologue about the increasingly dysfunctional and appalling meaning Christmas has for him.

* Music/ThePogues' "Fairytale of New York" (1987) sort of combines this with TheMasochismTango: He's a bum and an alcoholic, she's dying because of her heroin addiction, and he ends the song realizing he won't survive without her. "I pray God it's our last", indeed. In RealLife, lot of people are ''miserable'' around Christmastime; the song throws a bone their way, so it probably comforts some people to know they aren't alone in their misery.
** Quoth the music blog [[http://coverfreak.com/page/42/ Cover Freak]] about the song: "This is one of those songs that just brims with holiday good cheer. Especially the part where he calls her an old slut and she calls him a cheap lousy faggot."

** Quoth Subverted in that, beneath all the music blog [[http://coverfreak.com/page/42/ Cover Freak]] about fighting and misery, they still love each other and hope for a better life together. It's not a ''happy'' Christmas song--but it's all the song: "This is one more sincere because of those songs that just brims with holiday good cheer. Especially the part where he calls her an old slut and she calls him a cheap lousy faggot."it.
