Hey.

I need some help.

My band plays a gig every christmas and we always say that we'll cover a christmas song. Last year we did Last Christmas by Wham! so we need a new one to do this year.

Any suggestions.

We're a pop/punk band.

Thanks.

I'll put a video on YouTube in the new year of us doing it and I'll post the link up.


When there's something strange in your neighbourhood...who ya gonna call?!

Why, you too.

I was at Reading Go me. You turned nineteen, didn't you?

Look up the somewhat innacurately named charity ablum: "A Santa Cause: A Punk Rock Christmas". Any song from there would be a good choice and fit your style. December Is For Cynics by The Matches is a fun song to play.

If you were hoping for a more famous song, try Slade.

Confused? Good.

Okay, this is probably spam now. Although I've given him the best answer he's going to hear. How cool would a punk cover of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen sound? I'm thinking proper punk, but still ...

Why does that sound like something only the Sex Pistols would ever pull off?

It sounds like something only the Sex Pistols would do ... I'm not sure about 'pull off'. I mean, they can't even pull off their own songs any more, really - consider that 'Holiday in the Sun' is now being sung by a property developer

Yeah that's true. But they've never really been any good except for on record. And even then they're nothing special. In fact, they're not even punk, in terms of ethics.
