12 Days of Christmas Music That Isn't Awful—Day 2

Blink 182's "I Won't be Home for Christmas."

This master Christmas narrative casts Scrooge as the villain. While he was certainly an uptight dick, maybe he was right about a few things. The whole holiday-cheer business is kind of a cult. What better time is there to be miserable than when it's freezing cold out, it gets dark early, and you have to choose between paying your heating bill and spending your money on useless crap for that aunt you've hated for decades just so you won't get shit about it from your mom?

Blink 182 sums that feeling up nicely.
