MTV TRL Christmas is a compilation that offers Willa Ford’s avaricious carol ”Gimme Gimme Gimme” as its leadoff track. The album veers between innocuous vocal-group bubblegum (LFO, Christina Aguilera) and equally innocuous pop-punk (blink-182’s juvenile tidings of bad cheer in ”I Won’t Be Home for Christmas”). There are a few signs of intelligent life: Sugar Ray does a decent, if too faithful, cover of the Beach Boys’ ”Little Saint Nick,” and Smash Mouth’s ska-flavored ”Better Do It Right,” which pits Santa’s influence against Satan’s, has a little yuletide tang.
