Now that the holidays are upon us, do you ever find yourself wondering what your favorite music artists are listening to as they get into the holiday spirit? If so, you’re going to love the Rock Star playlists just released by Shockhound.com, which feature the holiday song choices of bands like Passion Pit, OK Go, Hey Monday, The Little Death, and many more. It gets even better, though–you can download songs from each of the holiday playlists directly from Shockhound.com without having to go through a third party vendor. Could it be any easier?
At a point in time where we have a plethora of holiday music to wade through, Shockhound.com had the bright idea to ask a panel of experts–and by “experts”, they mean rock stars–to weigh in on which holiday tunes will go great with your tree trimmings and eggnog. My personal favorite is the playlist compiled by Jersey Moriarty, Alex Lipshaw and Mike Gentile of Hey Monday. The list features a pretty bad-ass mix of holiday tunes that range from classics like “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby to originals like Fall Out Boy’s “Yule Shoot Your Eye Out”. If that kind of list isn’t your particular brand of poison, then one of the other lists will probably strike your fancy; when combined, the songs from each playlist have something for every kind of music lover. To check out the rock star playlists, visit Shockhound.com. For a full list of the bands who gave their two cents and created a holiday playlist, just scroll down a bit more! Clicking on any of the artists listed below will bring you to their official Web page or MySpace music page.
