5. A Heavy Metal Charlie Brown Christmas

After years of speculation and allegations, it's time for Charlie Brown to come out of the closet... as a metal head. This video proves that all the pent up aggression Chuck harbors from years of sexual frustration--and countless times of having the football ripped out from beneath him--has finally come to a breaking point. Sure, this gem isn't as much a Christmas song as it's a mashup between Charlie Brown Xmas and L.A. Christian thrashers Tourniquet. And it certainly shows that Brown and the gang know how to get brutal. Pigpen's shredding on the bass, Lucy's preparing for a circle pit, Snoopy's laying down some searing licks on his two stringed guitar. Merry mayhem, indeed.

4. Kamelot - We Three Kings

Who would have thought that powermetal and Christmas songs would go together so well? Kamelot takes on the Christmas classic "We Three Kings," delivering a powermetal opus burgeoning with strings, epic harmonized guitars, and anthemic drumming. Kamelot's exploration of classical song structures serves as the connective tissue between the seemingly disparate genres and their mastery of theatricality makes their rendition of "We Three Kings" suitable for arenas from Los Angeles to Gothenberg.
