What are the worst Christmas songs of all time?

Glenn recently released his very first Christmas album, Believe Again, featuring nine world-class musicians of all different Christian faiths coming together to create and make music like you’ve never heard before. On radio this morning, Pat and Stu debated the best and worst Christmas songs – and, as you might expect, disagreements abounded.

The conversation started when Stu expressed his dislike of a Christmas classic: “Little Drummer Boy.” The song has enjoyed quite the resurgence this week, after a rendition by a cappella group Pentatonix went viral:

As Stu explained, the song is far too repetitive for his liking. Instead, he prefers the little known hit “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.” Pat and Jeffy weren’t impressed.

“During the break, Stu played a little bit of the song he was talking about,” Pat said. “It's awful. I thought ‘Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer’ was bad. This is horrible.”

Check out the song in the clip below:

Pat proceeded to read a list of the 10 worst Christmas songs of all time as ranked by Slant Magazine. While neither “Little Drummer Boy” nor “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” made the list, Slant did dig up some truly terrible songs.

10. “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” – Jimmy Boyd

9. “Dominick the Donkey” – Lou Monte

8. “Same Old Lang Syne” – Dan Fogelberg

7. “Cherry Cherry Christmas” – Neil Diamond

6. “Christmas Conga” – Cyndi Lauper

5. “Funky, Funky Xmas” – New Kids on the Block

4. “Boys and Girls (Xmas Time Love” – The Cheeky Girls

3.”Merry Christmas with Love” – Clay Aiken

2. “Please, Daddy (Don’t Get Drunk This Country)” – John Denver

1. “The Christmas Shoes” – NewSong

“And I hate ‘Santa Baby’ by Madonna or anybody who does it. Awful. Awful,” Pat added. “‘Santa Claus is Coming To Town’ by Bruce Springsteen that everybody plays 150,000 times during Christmas season. I hate it. And it's the only one they play… And I don't know what the fascination is with every top 40 station playing that in the world.”

“You are not a huge fan of the Santa-type songs,” Stu observed. “Sometimes you connect with certain songs, and that's certainly natural. Obviously, I connected closely with the ‘I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas,’ which is, you know, a big time Christmas classic.”

…that no one has ever heard of.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
