It’s NFL playoff season, which means it’s time for you football fans to stop washing your lucky jerseys and socks, no matter how stiff or smelly they become. You don’t want to jinx your team now, do you?

To make these Sunday smackdowns even more entertaining, we’ve created these fun Football Drinking Games, which include live-action challenges along with prompts for your favorite team pump-up songs. Even non-football fans can enjoy the shenanigans with the dares below.

At this writing, there are still four teams left before Super Bowl Sunday on Feb. 1, 2015, so we’ve come up with categories for each championship contender: The Green Bay Packers vs. The Seahawks and the Indianapolis Colts vs. the New England Patriots. But there are plenty of Super Bowl-themed tilt-and-gulps too.

So whether you’re cheering in the stands or lazing in your favorite recliner, hoist the (nonalcoholic or, ahem, other) beverage of your choice whenever these events take place …

Everybody!

Drink when …
*An ad plays with an AC/DC song (Examples: “Play Ball” or “Back in Black”)
*There’s a time-out
*An announcer reports how loud the fans are
*A Beats by Dre commercial airs starring Seattle’s Richard Sherman or any NFL player, really
*An announcer volunteers a random stat that has no relation to the action on the field
*Someone in the room yells like he (or she) just scored the touchdown
*Justin Bieber’s new Calvin Klein ads air

Green Bay Packers Fans

Drink when …
The camera cuts to a fan wearing a cheese head hat

An ad featuring Gisele plays

Seattle SeaHawks Fans

Drink when …
“Outta Your Mind” by Lil Jon plays
The first four notes of Phish’s song “Wilson” play (“duh dunt, duh dunt”) and the crowd cheers “Wilson!” (Usually after Russell Wilson and the offense take the field for the first time)
Richard Sherman mouths off to a referee, coach, fan, hot dog vendor or anyone within 15 miles
“Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis plays, typically after a touchdown

Indianapolis Colts Fans

Drink when …
Andrew Luck gets tackled and compliments the sacker (Example: “Nice hit, guy”)
The Colts pull a 3rd down blitz
Anyone references Peyton Manning
An announcer mentions Luck’s “beard” or his Stanford stats

SUPER BOWL HALF-TIME BONUS:

Is this finally the year that Her Royal Highness Adele blesses us with a new album? Can DJ Mark Ronson‘s Uptown Special live up to the retro, feel-good hype of “Uptown Funk” with Bruno Mars? After dissing both Drake and his label, will Tyga have any fans left by the time The Gold Album comes out in January?

There’s plenty of cool new music to download in 2015, and we have January and February’s most anticipated (and irresistible) album releases — from cutie Meghan Trainor to indie rockers Fall Out Boy and Sleater-Kinney and R&B’s magnetic Ne-Yo. Plus, later in the year, expect new music from Fergie, Gwen Stefani, Fleetwood Mac, Modest Mouse, Miguel, Tame Impala and possibly, wait for it, Radiohead.

January – February 2015 Artists, Albums & Release Dates (Dates may change at the labels’ whims)

Mark Ronson, Uptown Special, 1/13 — Amy Winehouse‘s former producer and DJ teams up with Bruno Mars, Mystikal, Stevie Wonder, and more stars for new club-friendly jams.

Ready for some country-style holiday cheer, y’all? If December doesn’t feel complete without soaring sopranos and big gowns, then “CMA Country Christmas” is the TV special for you. The cheerful, 2-hour singalong returns at 9 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 20, to ABC with country’s top voices singing some of the most beautiful holiday songs of the season.

Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles once again hosts this year’s concert with Little Big Town, Brett Eldredge, Sara Evans, Alan Jackson, Dan + Shay, Hunter Hayes, Brad Paisley, LeAnn Rimes, Michael W. Smith, Carrie Underwood, and even Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler (dueting with Brad for “Run Rudolph Run”).

If that’s not jolly enough to pique your interest, consider LeAnn singing the silvery “Carol of the Bells” (watch below), Carrie joining Christian singer Michael W. Smith for a mesmerizing duet of “All Is Well” (from his new holiday album “The Spirit of Christmas”) and Jennifer singing hits like “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town.”

Later, Disney darling Idina Menzel performs “White Christmas,” the melodic “Do You Hear What I Hear?” and then teams with Jennifer to belt out, of course, her unstoppable hit from the movie “Frozen,” “Let It Go.”

All this Fa-La-La-La fun reminds us of some of our favorite old country holiday songs, plus some new ones that just came out for winter 2014 (noted below). Here’s what’s on our MyMusicCloud Top 10 Country Christmas Song Playlist.

10. “Go Tell It on the Mountain” – Sara Evans from her new album “At Christmas”
