The holidays are here, and that means it's time for to prove both your love of classic rock and your disdain for fashion by donning an ugly rock Christmas sweater. Luckily, there's plenty to choose from, as you can see in the gallery above.

As best we can explain it, the basic idea behind these ugly Christmas sweaters is to try and recreate what it would look like if your crocheting, Mary Kay-selling aunt tried to bond with you by making a special present for you based on your favorite band.

The results, of course, are hideously hysterical. Honestly, we can't imagine why anybody would spend money on something like this, which you'll wear for maybe four weeks out of the year, instead of continuing your quest to buy every awesome album known to mankind, but hey, to each their own.

Just to get this confession out of the way, we've got to admit that we included Pink Floyd and AC/DC sweaters that actually aren't that ugly, and an awesome Aerosmith holiday T-Shirt - based on the cover from their 1975 classic Toys in the Attic - that is neither ugly nor a sweater. Also, props to Anthrax for representing Hanukkah so awesomely!
