Alternative Christmas CDs, 2002 Edition
It's time for Christmas music. No, not that kind of music. You won't find Little Drummer Boy or Frost the Snowman on my Christmas cds.
This will be Alternative Christmas 2. I've started with some repeats from last year, and will add suggestions from you.
What I'm looking for is either Christmas classics redone in a completely new style or songs that deal with the less jolly side of Christmas (for instance, that Weird Al song about Santa going crazy at the mall, any South Park Christmas song, etc.) or just plain weird holiday songs. Please, no Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer.
I've started the list with these tunes:
Spinal Tap - Christmas With the Devil
Vandals - Christmastime For My Penis
Pennywise - Christmas in Hell
Captain Sensible - One Christmas Catalogue
Fear - Fuck Christmas
King Diamond- No Presents For Christmas
Christmas in Hollis - Run-D.M.C.
Snoop Doggy Dogg - Santa Claus Goes Straight To The Ghetto
Zebrahead - I Hate Christmas
Wesley Willis - Merry Christmas
I think you see where I'm going here. These will not be cds to play when grandma and grandpa come over. Or your parents, for that matter.
I made two cds last year. If I can get enough suggestions for songs that don't repeat the 2001 cds, I'll make it three and give some copies away in a bah-humbug-ish sort of Christmas spirit.
Have at it, and don't be afraid to give me the most bizzare selections you can find. That's why it's called Alternative.
(Yes, I will be illegally downloading these songs. But if you have an mp3 to pass along to ease my corporate guilt, please send it my way)
*updated* Led has a great Christmas song list going on - he also has a radio station to play the songs on. A lot of those tunes were on my list last year, like Bad Religion, The Frogs, and Type O Negative. I think I'll add the Weezer song to this year's.
John Fogde also has a list (and a great blog) and I'll scoop the Badly Drawn Boy song from him.
