Released in 2007, Monster Ballads Xmas (also referred to as Monster Ballads Christmas) is the fourth in a series of compilation albums that features popular 80s rock bands, usually from the glam metal genre. This is the first in the series to feature a holiday theme – and the first to feature newly recorded songs.

The idea for the album came about due in part by Twisted Sister's surprising 2006 album success—A Twisted Christmas. Both albums were released by the Razor & Tie label and Twister Sister member Jay Jay French produced this album.
