Bad Religion - Christmas Songs

A fitting end to our Christmas celebration is this cd. What could be better than seasonal gospel hymns performed by renowned atheists? Not much, that's what! I also added the one-sided 'Father Christmas' and their take on Fear's 'Fuck Christmas' to round it out. God bless us, every one!

Joyful And Triumphant

And that'll do it for me. I'll see everyone in January.

Angry Snowmans

Today I'm filling your stockings full of awesome! The Angry Snowmans are the greatest Christmas-themed punk rock cover band ever! Period! Haven't had the pleasure? Here's their description from bandcamp:

Disgruntled, displaced Elves of the North Pole who are telling the world about Santa's abusive practices by playing classic punk rock songs. Started in 2008, there is no end in sight. Grab an eggnog and get your ass under that mistletoe! Ho-Ho-Ho- Let's Go!

Don Weenow - Guitar
Miss Eltoe - Bass
Mr. Coalfire - Guitar
Boughs Of Pauly - Drums
Elise Navidad - Bells, Vocals
Saint Dick - Vocals

Support these guys! I really hope they don't mind me giving their stuff away, But it's truly some of the best stuff I've heard in a long time. Enjoy! And if I eventually have to take it down, go buy it!

Fear - Anti-Christmas Celebration - Live On KPFK

The great Fear deliver this chunk of coal. From a 1985 radio broadcast. Unfortunately they censor themselves, but they get their point across just fine.

Brain Damaged, But It's Only Permanent

First up today we have a Christmas repost. A 're-gift', if you will. Sloppy Seconds with a sad Christmas tale, 3 non holiday tracks and a Hooray finale.

And we're calling this Showcase Showdown 7" a "re-gift" since the first song was on the 'Cashing In On Christmas' comp. The second song was on there too, but by a different band.

Regarding Requests

Yep, I've managed to let the requests pile up yet again. I'm not ignoring you, just be patient. I'm lazy and slow. I hope to complete everyone's Christmas list by the end of the year. Then I'll start fresh putting off new requests in January.

I'm sorry, but NOFX is great. Period. Here's their Xmas single from 2012.

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

Here's a great collection of yuletide favorites from some snot-nosed 90's punks. A great collection, and Merry Stupid Fucking Christmas to you all!!

Vandals - Oi! To The World

The Vandals have been rockin' and rollin' since 1980. Granted, only one member remains from 1980, and he technically wasn't there at the very beginning, but they have kept us entertained in one form or another. In fact those "forms" have varied wildly over the years. This is their punk homage to Christmas. A beautiful collection, really. I defy you to listen to Christmas Time For My Penis without shedding a tear!

Fa La La La La La La La La La, Thanks For Nothing!

Saccharine Trust - A Christmas Cry 7"

So if you think I've been phoning it in this month wait until you see today's post. A one sided single! Saccharine Trust from 1982. Man these dudes are weird. I mean, I dig 'em and all, but... damn!

Well, What Is Christmas?

Misfits - Horror Xmas 7"

The Misfits aren't just for Halloween any more. This 2013 7" puts a nice 'fits spin on the Grinch and Elvis, plus add a new original.

Alcoholics Unanimous - Santa Claus: DWI 7"

Today we have two sad Christmas songs. First song explains why there'll be no presents for you and I. And the second is simply an angry rant because "that fat hairy fucker forgot the booze".

Nihilistics - Merry Christmess 7"

These rotten bastards released this yuletide chestnut in 1991. Great angry, scummy fun!

Christmas Time, Christmas Crime

Crass - Merry Crassmas 7"

Who says Anarchists can't have fun? Crass released this heart-warming slab of holiday cheer in 1981. It's a medley of several of their smash hits played simply on a Casio. And I guess if you sent a postcard listing all the songs you'd win some bath salts or even Exploited singles. Crazy anarchists!

Crucial Youth - Crucial Yule 7"

Crucial Youth released this Christmas 7" in 1988. A great Holiday re-working of Iron Cross & Stormtroopers Of Death. Plus, much like 'Hair Of The Dog' from Monday's compilation, they include Jonathan Richmond's not-Christmas-related 'I'm Straight'. A good fun record indeed.

V/A - Do Not Open Till Christmas

This Canadian compilation with the oh so heartwarming cover kicks off our month long Christmas celebration. Fair warning, posts are going to be a bit more sparse than usual as I celebrate the birth of our lord and savior, Shane MacGowan. He has yet to fully die for our sins but he damn sure seems to be trying! (editors note: I picked him because he was born on Dec. 25th. That's all).

Anyway, I found this one over in Melonville some time ago. And it's as good a place to start as any. An interesting collection to say the least. Much like a huge holiday dinner with the family, there's bound to be a couple people at the table you don't like. But overall, you're glad you came. Fourteen Pacific Northwest bands singing sixteen Christmas songs. Well, actually fifteen. One band does Nazareth's 'Hair Of The Dog'. A Christmas classic, right?

Don't Open
