V/A - Cashing In On Christmas, Vol. 1

And now it's time for your old pal Doc to phone it in for a while. Black Hole Records came up with the clever idea of this Punk Christmas compilation and released it in 1996. Then, it 2010 they got another great idea and decided to make it a series of releases. And that's what you're going to get over the course of the next week or so. Starting, of course, with the original. Ho Ho Ho!

And 1985 saw the followup to yesterday's post. This time 7 bands knock out 11 tracks. And a slightly better collection altogether. Also with Finnish legends Rattus adding their two cents.

The Yobs - Christmas Album + XMAS II

The Yobs were English punks The Boys hopped up on egg nog. Download both volumes now. That will give you a full 5 months to learn the lyrics. Then at your Christmas party just overpower the DJ, slap these suckers on and drunkenly sing along as loud as possible! Great fun guaranteed.

SSD - Jolly Old St Nicholas 7"

Boston legends SSD got into the Christmas spirit with this one sided single from 1992. Short enough to fit in even the smallest stocking.
