10 Rock and Roll Jams To Replace Your Boring Christmas Playlist

Are you sick of the ho-hum standards usually played during the Holiday season? Have no fear! Your amazing new Christmas playlist is here! Tune in rock out and get rid of those winter blues, because these highly original christmas songs are going to knock your socks off.
Get modern, get cool, and get all ready for Christmas!

1. Yule Shoot Your Eye Out / Fall Out Boy

This song is everything. And if you've never heard it before, you're in for a treat. Vengeful, cutting and completely clever it's the kind of Christmas song you can stomach over and over without throwing up.
Get your Santa hats out, because you've got a new Christmas jam.

2. Merry Christmas (I Don't Want To Fight Tonight) / The Ramones

This punk rock classic is perfect for that moment when you're forced to decorate the tree with family members that don't necessarily get along. You know...all of them. So for your next Christmas gathering...just play them this, "Come on guys. It's Christmas time, don't fight. The Ramones said so!" Right? That's all it'll take.

3. Don't Shoot Me Santa / The Killers

I wrote an entire list of all the great Killers Christmas songs. They're seriously all remarkable. I had to include my personal favorite, "Don't Shoot Me Santa" the catchiest, funniest most edgy Christmas song around.
Play this video for your friends and watch them fall in love. Seriously.

4. I Wish It Was Christmas Today / Julian Casablancas

The lead singer of The Strokes gives you this Dean-Martin-esque Christmas neo-classic. It's smooth and classic, but still has that classic Casablancas sneer. It's magic. So play this for your parents at their boring Christmas party, and just bop along. Because it's kind of like you're listening to The Strokes without offending old people right?

5. All I Want For Christmas Is You / My Chemical Romance

This is my favorite version of this song. Your friends are probably all like..."What about Mariah Carey! She's the Christmas queen!" No. Gerard Way is the Christmas queen damn it. Trust me.
This is the best version of this song you will hear.

6. All I Want For Christmas / The Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Karen O's distinct vocals coupled with this rockabilly vibe make "All I Want For Christmas" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is the perfect song to listen to while you're contemplating your existence during the holidays.
Rock music just does that.

7. Merry Christmas, Kiss My Ass / All Time Low

Much like Fall Out Boy's Christmas tune, All Time Low bring the spiteful part of the season to light. For some, the Holidays aren't a beautiful, golden time filled with presents and chestnuts and all that. For some, they're cold, lonely and a reminder of all the things you continuously screw up.
This one's for you. Play it loud, even if you're a Grinch.

8. White Christmas / Panic! At The Disco

Let Brendon Urie's velvety smooth vocals lull you into Christmas bliss with this lovely cover of a classic. Probably the most traditional on the list, its something you can jam with your grandma to, and have a little laugh to yourself because it's Brendon Urie not Bing Crosby.

9. The Flaming Lips / Christmas at the Zoo

I had the distinct pleasure of seeing The Flaming Lips this summer at the Nelsonville Music Festival in Ohio. It was one of the strangest experiences of my life. The scene was madness: big rock hooks with neon lights, swinging strings of lights, giant balloons, various strains of marijuana smoke flying through the air and the crazy presence of lead singer Wayne Coyne.
This Christmas song is nutty, just like the band. It's also the perfect thing to play during one of your young, hip Christmas gatherings...if you have one.

10. Won't Be Home For Christmas / Blink 182

Rock and roll can be bitter business, but the truth is, that some people just can't get home for Christmas and others just don't want to. Whatever your reason for being away from home, you're not alone. You've got Blink 182 to lull you into holiday submission.
Which Christmas song was your favorite!? If you like this playlist, or want to make one of your own, be sure to hang around the Alternative Rock community here on Vingle! And Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

5 Pop-Punk Classics That'll Help You Mend A Broken Heart
Breaking up is hard to do, and I'm not just ripping that from some classic song. Punk music has been a constant reminder of our teenage angst, our greatest fears and our greatest triumphs. It's always there when nothing else can be. If you're dealing with a break up, make sure to listen to these on full blast. Feel free to sing along. 1. You're So Last Summer - Taking Back Sunday This is a band that never shied away from the emotional. Most of their early stuff centered on break-ups and betrayal because of interpersonal dealings between members. Some messy messy stuff indeed. Anyway, this is the song that's perfect for driving too fast through a park near your house. Make sure you're best friend is riding shotgun because there are some great partner vocals. Best Lyric: "The truth / is you could slit my throat / and with my one last gasping breath / I'd apologize for bleeding on your shirt." 2. My Friends Over You - New Found Glory Loyalty comes in many forms, but nobody is more loyal than your best friends. Throughout your breakups and makeups, it's easy to get caught up in the person you're dating and forget about the people who will be with you unconditionally. This is where "My Friends Over You" comes in. Don't forget who takes care of you. At the end of the day, when you're looking for an easy hookup or not...don't screw your friends over for something fleeting and shallow. Best Lyric: "Though you said that you were true / I'd still pick my friends over you." 3. When I Come Around - Green Day There will be people in your life who dump you because you're too lazy, too stupid, too much of a workaholic, too wild, too boring, too...well, anything. You can't let those people get in the way of who you are. Once they leave you, you'll probably be better off because you can get back in touch with who you are, who you want to be and where you're going. After all, when you come around and figure all of that out, they will have missed all of the wonderful things you had to offer. Best Lyric: "You may find out that your self doubt means nothing was ever there / you can't go forcing something if it's just not right." 4. Dammit - Blink 182 It's great when a break-up is easy, but some can get downright ugly. When a former partner starts to slander you, talk mad shit to your friends and manage to rub their new relationship in your hostile little face, it can be hard to keep it together. Just remember that when you run into them (and you will) you have to hold your head high, because shit doesn't last long enough to stay mad. People have their reasons for acting like a dick, it doesn't make their actions correct. All you can do is move on. Best Lyric: "The charade / it won't last / when he's gone / I won't come back." 5. Grand Theft Autumn (Where Is Your Boy?) - Fall Out Boy People have a tendency to surprise you, and not always in a good way. This song reminds me of how you can be with someone and think they are one way, and they end up being completely terrible. We get caught up in the way people appear. This is what leads to relationship disasters. We try to impress these people and we compromise what was good about ourselves. If we believe that we're meant for someone, we'll try to fit into their mold...but some things just can't change. Best Lyric: "You need him / I could be him / I could be an accident, but I'm still trying."

Funko Pop To Release My Chemical Romance Figures!
The MCRmy loves to consume everything and anything related to our heroes My Chemical Romance. This year, just in time for the Holidays Funko Pop, a brand famously known for creating vinyl toys are releasing adorable My Chemical Romance figures. Pictured above, the "Revenge Gerard Way" figure, which recreates a classic look from the "Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge" era, has already sold out of pre-orders on Hot Topic.com. Obviously, because it's sporting the trademark mask that Gerard famously drew on for the Taste of Chaos Tour in '07. Yeah, we know our MCR history. Anyway, The only designs that have been released are of lead singer Gerard Way, and boy are they adorable and collectible. I kind of want all three. Take a look! There are several designs of Gerard from "The Black Parade" as well. Here is the skeleton make-up he wore for a lot of the TV appearances surrounding the release of the record. Look at its cute little Black Parade jacket. I bet we all wish we had one! The next design is a clean faced figure, with the soulless eyes of "The Patient" (the main character from the band's Black Parade, a concept record released in 2006). Whatever your favorite era of Gerard is (Danger Days doesn't make an appearance, although we'd love to see the red-haired Party Poison figure, complete with lazer gun!), there will be something for you. Hopefully you can snatch up one of these figures before they sell out completely. Which design is your favorite?

CBD for Sleep, CBD Benefits, Side Effects, and Treatment
People have long used the cannabis plant for medicinal and recreational purposes. Compounds called cannabinoids in the plant are responsible for the effects on the brain, and the two most abundant of these are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). People use CBD for a variety of reasons, including reducing seizures, anxiety, and pain. Some studies have demonstrated that CBD may also be a sleep aid. In this article, we look at whether it works and any associated risks. What the research says In the last decade, growing public interest in the benefits of marijuana, and CBD in particular, has encouraged researchers to study its effects. Early studies indicate that high dosages of CBD may support sleep. One investigation found that, compared with a placebo, a CBD dosage of 160 milligrams (mg) increased sleep duration. The researchers also concluded that the placebo, 5 mg of the insomnia drug nitrazepam, and 40, 80, and 160 mg of CBD helped the participants fall asleep. The stress hormone levels of cortisol are typically peak in the morning, but people with insomnia may have high cortisol levels at night. Independent of insomnia, having high cortisol levels at night is associated with an increased nighttime awakening. In one study on the effects of CBD, researchers found that cortisol levels decreased more significantly when participants took 300 or 600 mg of CBD oil. These results suggest that CBD affects the release of cortisol, possibly acting as a sedative. A more recent analysis of CBD and sleep recruited 103 participants who had anxiety or poor sleep. The researchers studied the effects of CBD combined with those of other prescribed medications. The CBD dosages ranged from 25โ€“175 mg. The researchers found that 25 mg was the most effective dosage for anxiety and that addressing troubled sleep required higher dosages. During the 3-month study, the investigators followed up with the participants monthly. At the first follow-up, 66.7% reported an improvement in sleep, but 25% had worsened sleep. 56.1% of the participants reported improved sleep at the second, but 26.8% had worsened sleep. The researchers conclude that although CBD might help people sleep in the short term, the effects may not be sustained. Side effects and other risks of CBD Overall, the available evidence suggests that CBD is well-tolerated. Some people report fatigue and mental sedation with CBD use, but researchers believe this may be related to the dosage. Taking 10โ€“400 mg of CBD per day for an extended period and by different routes did not have a toxic effect on participants in a large retrospective study. Even dosages of up to 1,500 mg per day were well-tolerated, other researchers report. However, determining whether there are long-term risks of CBD use will require further studies. So far, no reports of lethal CBD overdoses exist. Some researchers may be concerned about CBD abuse, but information on significant complications is limited. One study indicates that dosages of 400โ€“700 mg of CBD, which is considered high, can aggravate cognitive deficits in people with schizophrenia. Combining CBD and THC may, however, improve cognition. Researchers do report that CBD may cause other adverse effects, including: alterations of cell viability in studies conducted in cell cultures decreased fertilization capacity inhibition of drug metabolism in the liver reduced activity of P-glycoprotein and other drug transporters If these effects on drug metabolism and transportation are confirmed, it would indicate that CBD interferes with other medications. Overall, more research is necessary. Still, it is suitable for anyone who wants to use CBD to speak with a healthcare provider first. Check out the best CBD for sleep at Sweet Dream Beauty website.
The Christmas Latte to Rule Them All
I've talked about this cafe before, and I'll talk about it again. All That Sweets is hands down my favorite dessert cafe on Earth. Watch my video review here or read below^^ Today I went alone so I passed on a slice of the strawberry shortcake but look how adorable is it! Their cakes are always light and creamy, though the flavors change daily! I've seen chocolate, vanilla, and even kiwi cakes. Instead I opted for one of their amazing macarons. Because I came late in the day, my only option was the chocolate raspberry "merry xmas" heart macaron, but I probably would have chosen that anyway. These flavors also vary with the season but every single one I've ever tried has been absolutely delicious. But of course, the star of the show is my Christmas Tree Latte <3 Their lattes are amazingly intricate, and they have a dozen of them on the menu at all times. The homemade (delicious) whipped cream is covered in melted chocolate, sprinkles, and meringue cookies. I seriously thought I hated meringue until I tried these babies. Now I can't get enough! They sell these for the month of December, and then usually move on to make snowflake or other winter themed lattes. All year 'round they offer rose, raincloud, and even coral styled lattes! This year they also introduced a gingerbread man latte that I was tempted to get, but I had to stick to my traditional tree :) You can also find me here: Tumblr Instagram Twitter Facebook SnapChat: cari.cakez
