12 Very '90s Christmas Songs

It wasn't all about Mariah! NSYNC, Beck, Master P, and a weirdly mystical Garth Brooks also celebrated the Yuletide.

1. Let's get something straight right away: Mariah Carey's "Merry Christmas" is the best Christmas album of the '90s, and "All I Want For Christmas Is You" is the best new Christmas song of the past 20 years, maybe even 30 years.

"All I Want For Christmas Is You"


"Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays"

"This Gift"

4. Why is there no trace of Christmas-ness on the cover of Garth Brooks' Christmas CD? Why does he look like an evil cowboy wizard?


"Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!"

Snoop Dogg featuring Nate Dogg, Daz Dillinger, Tray Deee, and Bad Azz, "Santa Claus Goes Straight to the Ghetto"

Beck, "The Little Drum Machine Boy"


7. The Smashing Pumpkins, No Doubt, Natalie Merchant, Dave Matthews, Hootie and the Blowfish, Blues Traveler, Sheryl Crow, and Mary J. Blige got together to make the most '90s Christmas album possible.

The Smashing Pumpkins, "Christmastime"

"We Wish You a Merry Chest Wig"


"Silent Night"

C-Murder and Master P, "Christmas in the Ghetto"

"Assassination on X-Mas Eve"

"Christmas at the Zoo"
