It’s that time of year once again! Christmas is this Thursday, and everyone that celebrates is all in tizzy with last-minute preparations for the perfect holiday. And what better way to celebrate than with a little music playing in the background?
But if you’re like me, you get tired of hearing the same tunes played over and over all month-long (sometimes even longer). So why not try something different this year and give your typical holiday music a little kick?
Released by Fearless Records, Punk Goes Christmas features an array of popular punk artists playing favorite holiday songs as well as new ones! And though the music is a little different from what’s usually heard, holiday elements are still present (pun intended) in each song.
Listen to Being as an Ocean cover “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” with both clean and guttural vocals. Or if you’re looking to relax in front of the fire with some eggnog and roasted chestnuts, put on This Wildlife’s “Sleigh Ride,” a nice wind-down from the hectic aspects of the holiday season. Want to share some laughs with family and friends? Give Sunrise Skater Kids’ comical rendition of “12 Days of Christmas” a try, which chronicles the 12 gifts of every punk rocker’s dream.
If you’re looking for something new this season, the album also features some originals, including “Fool’s Holiday” by All Time Low, “Father Christmas” by Man Overboard, and “I had a Heart” by the Chicago sad boys, Real Friends.
Other artists on the album include New Found Glory, The Summer Set, Yellowcard, The Ready Set, and more! This album will make the perfect gift for the punk-enthusiast of any family.
Punk Goes Christmas is available for purchase on Fearless Records’ website, iTunes, and Amazon. Full album stream is available on YouTube as well.
