(I am busy openin’ presents and eatin’ turkey and so forth.)
You go with No Doubt’s inferior cover instead of the Vandals original? Its like I don’t even know you. Or that Canadians just don’t get music…
What LurkerWithout said, the Vandals original is my favourite Christmas song ever.
I’m it was the cover version since I had never heard it before, unlike the original which I’ve played to death over the years.
Thanks for the vid, MGK! This was probably the most thoughtful gift I got today, and you have no idea who I am!
Well, I’m kind of upset now that I didn’t find out about this song until Christmas Day. Now I have to wait until next December before I can start playing it again. The same thing happened last year when I discovered ‘Fairytale Of New York’ on Christmas Eve.
Have a Merry rest of Christmas, and a happy Boxing Day, whatever that is.
I went and looked up the original version on Youtube, and I think this one is better. You made the right choice.
If you want to hear a really good rock & roll Christmas song, you might want to check out ‘All I Want For Christmas’ by Shonen Knife. It’s fantastic!!
You can find it on Youtube, but it doesn’t have an actual video, just a still picture of the band.
I believe MGK posted the Vandals version last Christmas. Hence, the need for variety.

I miss No Doubt!Gwen.
Back when Gwen still had some cred.
Also, godfuckingdammit is Adrian Young hot. The punk/skin look just -does- things to me.
>>Back when Gwen still had some cred.
I’m sorry, in this whole ‘punk rock’ thing, cred is retroactively deducted after future acts destroys it, up to the point where enough negative cred has been generated to undo all of an artist’s previous works.
