A shit kicking version of Merry Xmas Everybody by Slade. I always thought the single version was a bit restrained, this kicks ass...

Usually around this time my picks get more traditional and maudlin, NOT THIS YEAR FUCKERS. At least, not yet.

Flex's 25 Days of Christmas (Songs) 2020, Day 22: Anti-Heros - All Hail Santa



Original release: Don't Tread On Me
Year: 1988

The men, the myths, the legends. This is, uh, kinda dodgy (much like the band) but I think funny as fuck (much like the band).
