Sunday Serenade: Oh Come All Ye Faithful

by Richard

So, here’s the deal. I love Christmas as much as the next dude.

Provided, of course, the next dude is a cynical, money-grubbing opportunist with an appallingly gruesome sense of humor. You know, like you do.

Anyway. I’m not a big fan of the traditional Christmas carols. They just. . . I don’t know. I don’t like them.

I do, however, love it when someone gets ahold of a Christmas carol and then just, well, does some very interesting or, as is the case here, twisted with them.

Twisted Sister was, perhaps the quintessential hair-metal band of the 80’s. Known for their song “We’re Not Going to Take It,” Twisted Sister went on to lasting fame and popularity as the most well-respected. . . No, sorry.

Can’t do it. Couldn’t keep a straight face. These guys had long hair, dressed in outrageous (for the 80’s) clothing and wore makeup. Hair metal at its finest. They took the lyrics of “Oh Come All Ye Faithful” and put it — basically — to the music of their big hit.

The result is about what you’d expect. Enjoy.
