Rarely does a topic of this nature get past Bean, but every once in a while one slips through the cracks. Allie Mackay brought this list to Bean's attention and he could not wait to talk about it on the air. As we all know Bean loves holiday songs and Christmas music more than anything. He once thought about starting a podcast dedicated to Christmas music. He even dedicates some of his spare time year round to compiling and adding songs to his Christmas music playlist.

So with this amount of love for the songs of the holiday spirit, Bean takes exception to this list because he loves all the songs of the holiday season so much. The editors and writers of the St. Louis Post Dispatch each nominated a song they hate to put together the article '10 holiday songs we absolutely cannot stand'.

You can only imagine the joy it brought Bean to talk about this on the air. Together Bean, Allie, Jensen and Kevin went through a list of Christmas songs to see if they like these songs or hate these songs. Listen along then check out the list of songs below.

Kevin hates it, everyone else loves it: Paul McCartney - 'Wonderful Christmas Time'

Here's a classic Christmas song that's been around for 60 years: Harry Simeone Chorale - "Little Drummer Boy"

This song gave Jensen flashbacks, it's a Country classic: John Denver - 'Please Daddy Don't Get Drunk This Christmas'

Here's another all time classic that you rarely hear: Gayla Peevey - 'I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas'

This was a very controversial song because of Bono's lyrics: Band Aid - 'Do They Know It's Christmas'

This is a song by the most famous Ukulele player of all time at the end of his career: Tiny Tim - 'Santa Claus Has Got the AIDS'

A classic that was popular for over 40 years: Lou Monte - 'Dominick the Donkey'

A song that Bean hated was turned into a movie and TV show: Elmo & Patsy - 'Grandma Got Run over by a Reindeer'

This a newer song that has become a modern standard that gets played every year: New Song - 'The Christmas Shoes'

The irony here is the one Christmas song that Bean does hate isn't even on this list. So what is the one Christmas song that he despises the most? You'll be surprised to know it is, 'The 12 days of Christmas' performed by anyone.
