Does Christmas make you want to twist and shout? Get all shook up? Rock n’ Roll all night and party ev-er-y day? Retro Festive is here to help! Let’s take a look at the biggest rock acts in history who also love to celebrate the Yuletide season!
Between 1963 and 1969 The Beatles recorded special Christmas albums specifically for their fan club. These recordings ranged from the beautiful to the incredibly strange. One classic Christmas song from these recordings, Christmas Time (Is Here Again), wasn’t officially released until 1995.
Nothing says Christmas time is here again like a Yellow Submarine Beatles Christmas Stocking!
The Grateful Dead
The Grateful Dead may not be the first band you might think of around Christmas, but their colourful imagery and good-vibes, jam-band aesthetic is a perfect match for the holidays! Throw on that tie-dye shirt and enjoy their rollicking version of Run Run Rudolph.

KISS is an American hard rock band known for fire breathing, blood spitting, levitating drum kits, elaborate pyrotechnics and Christmas! Lead singer Paul Stanley shows you how to party your way through Christmas in this classic MTV segment from 1985.
And of course no Christmas would be complete without this Gene Simmons Nutcracker!
Christmas has never been the same since Elvis’ Christmas Album was release in 1957. The album was so sensational that Irving Berlin, the original author of White Christmas, tried to get the album banned from the radio. The album topped music charts for months and gave birth to a modern Christmas classic, Blue Christmas.
Almost 40 years after his death, Elvis is still one of the biggest stars in Rock n’ Roll history. Treat him like the King he is with this Elvis Tree Topper!
