In short, this is the song form of CrappyHolidays. BadSanta might be invoked. Sometimes there's overlap with ProtestSong if the Anti-Christmas Song is serious and political enough.

Added DiffLines:

* Yogi Yorgesson's "I Yust Go Nuts at Christmas". The narration in the middle describes a {{SerialEscalati|on}}ng quarrel-dispute-fight between the singer's side of the extended family and his wife's side. The middle gives us this gem that can't be unheard:
--> "Peace on Earth, goodwill toward men." \\
Yust at that moment, someone slugs Uncle Ben.

* SufjanStevens has "That Was the Worst Christmas Ever!" (2006), which is based loosely on Sufjan's own childhood: the stress of the holidays would cause his parents to argue, and these arguments would generally end with mom grabbing a present at random from under the tree and throwing it into the fire. The song ends with the repeated lyrics "Silent night / nothing feels right."

* "Elf's Lament" (2004) by BarenakedLadies. Not as nasty as some of these, but it focuses on the plight of Santa's elves as they try to unionize in order to improve their working conditions.

* "Pretty Paper", written by WillieNelson and popularized by Music/RoyOrbison (1963), should be mentioned here, as it's about someone (a sidewalk vendor hawking wrapping paper and pencils to the holiday shoppers rushing past him) who's clearly not having a good time amid the celebration.
