‘Hark The Herald Wish They Didn’t Sing’ — Six Christmas Songs That Shouldn’t Have Been Released

2. “Yo Ho Ho” by DC Talk

The next song comes from a 1990 ForeFront Records Christmas compilation that should have never been made. Unfortunately, it was. And it’s a sure bet that DC Talk’s TobyMike, and Kevin wish it hadn’t been, but through the wonders of the internet, we can listen to this otherwise forgotten Christmas song performed by a band that went on to change Christian music. The name of the song is “Yo Ho Ho” and was released shortly after DC Talk’s second album “Nu Thang.” Needless to say, this new thing didn’t need to be made.

3. “I’m Gettin’ Nuttin’ For Christmas” by Reliant K

Reliant K has released two Christmas albums during the Christian rock band’s 23-year career. One of those albums, which was called “Let It Snow, Baby…Let It Reindeer,” debuted on October 23, 2007. One of the songs the band recorded for that album was “I’m Gettin’ Nuttin’ For Christmas,” a cover of a 1950s holiday classic. Although the song was written for laughs, Reliant K’s punk rock version might make you cry.

4. “Little Drummer Boy” by Justin Beiber

The “Little Drummer Boy” is one of the Christmas songs that just shouldn’t have ever been written or recorded to begin with, back in 1941. So just about the only thing that could make that worse would be to have Justin Bieber release a version of it featuring rapper Busta Ryhmes.

Bieber has come a long way since his release of “Drummer Boy” on his 2011 Christmas album “Under the Mistletoe,” not only as an artist but as someone who found Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. That being said, this might be one of the worst songs he’s ever released. The song starts off with great vocals, even for a horribly written song, but then takes a turn to the South Pole after Bieber decides to start rapping. But you be the judge.
