* Not so much about Christmas as they are very fun songs, and the titles means no one will notice them in the mix till it's too late.
** As OP, the rules did not exist until I hit 'post' therefore me breaking the rules by putting some canon in there predates the law and is therefore grandfathered in. Law is always and everywhere subservient to power.

E: Gonna try to be a good sport like everyone else and link audio. Gonna take a while, obv.

This thread grew out of the Boomer Hate thread. Basically, the cover must be such that a random 65 year old would try to turn off the car stereo if you played it.

Songs by black artists automatically count, universally and definitionally.

Also, try adding the name/track, cause digging through my old stuff to put the original post together, it's incredible what a short half life Youtube links have.

Run Rudolph Run - Chuck Berry
Though Mainstream and Boomer-accepted, must therefore count.

All I Want For Christmas Is You - Mariah Carey
Couldn't be more overplayed but busting into the mainstream of Xmas songs after 1960 is like running a 3 minute mile. https://xkcd.com/988/
