Christmas Music That Rocks# 1

Hey guys, going to do this once a day until Christmas.

Once a day...crap, hope I don't run out of ideas.

Anyways, as a rule, unless it is the standards (Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, etc) I generally despise Christmas music. In fact it's of my opinion that 97% of the time, if you release a Christmas album, you are in it for the money. A single is okay, a whole album is just usually crap.

Tori Amos, I'm looking at you.

But the season does occasionally lead to um..er.. interesting tunes and first up is a brand new one from my favorite Uncle, Al Jourgensen.

Got to give the man credit, he has written tons of great industrial material as well as a theme song for The Chicago Blackhawks and now a Christmas tune for his wife and Ministry's departed base player Paul Raven.

The tune was created along with Mark Thwaite (The Mission U.K., Peter Murphey amongst others) and to be honest, rather catchy.

Be forewarned, the start of the following video, not very work safe.
