Forget presents – the best part of Christmas is breaking out your favorite ugly Christmas sweater and seeing how many high 5’s or eyerolls you can get from your nearest and dearest. Once an unfortunate byproduct of having a relative that knew how to knit and also really, really liked Christmas, the ugly Christmas sweater has made a resurgence in recent years and if you’re a rock and roll fan, you’re in luck: the hideous sweaters you grew up with now come in the form of official merchandise from all of your favorite bands!
If you’re still in the market for an ugly Christmas sweater as the holiday parties amp up just 6 days before Christmas, we’ve got you covered. Check out 7 ugly rock Christmas sweaters that’ll make you an office party hit this season!
Love Christmas and all things AC/DC? This gem is right up your alley, especially if you haven’t yet crossed over into proper ugly Christmas sweater territory. With bright red print against a black background, you can’t go wrong with a little AC/DC this holiday season (or any season, for that matter). You won’t be fully ‘Back In Black’ but with a sweater this damn cool, who cares?
Pink Floyd may be all but a memory these days, but you can still show your love at this year’s white elephant gift exchange with this super neat Pink Floyd ugly Christmas sweater. Styled after the band’s iconic 1973 classic Dark Side of the Moon, you’ve got yourselves a Christmas sweater cool enough for Roger Waters and David Gilmour to actually agree on.
With a tour that grossed over $100 million, it’s pretty safe to say that Guns N’ Roses had the best year ever. Keep the party going all season long with this delightfully hideous Guns N’ Roses Christmas sweater – who knows, maybe Santa will even gift you with tickets to see Axl and the boys on their Not In This Lifetime… Tour!
You’re a mean one, Mr. Osbourne – and by that we mean a mean dresser this holiday season! I mean, come on – Ozzy Osbourne and How the Grinch Stole Christmas, all wrapped up in one seriously awesome Christmas sweater? Sign us up – you won’t be the only thing feeling warm and fuzzy this holiday season!
This Christmas Eve, don’t forget to leave a Jack and Coke out in Lemmy’s honor. It’s our first Christmas without the rock legend, and we can’t think of a better way to honor his memory than to rock a Motörhead sweater at the office Christmas party (and don’t forget the Joker!).
It doesn’t get more metal than this Black Sabbath ugly Christmas sweater. Bearing the title of the band’s fifth studio album Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, this sweater might raise a few eyebrows when you go home to mom and dad’s for Christmas, but isn’t that the point? Oh well – at least Ozzy, Tony, Geezer and Bill approve!
Looking for satisfaction this Christmas? We’ve got you covered with this seriously rockin’ ugly Rolling Stones Christmas sweater – but don’t blame us if the guests at your holiday party ask you to do your best Mick Jagger impersonation and sing “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” when it’s time to break out the karaoke machine.
