Unfortunately, this next song is not available for streaming on the Internet. However, if you think you'd enjoy a song called "Daddy Drank Our Christmas Money," then you may want to take a leap of faith and download this tune by TVTV$.

The Damned were one of the earliest punk bands to break onto the music scene, releasing their debut album in 1977. Along the way of a lengthy career, they found the time to release this little ditty, the title of which is a nod to The Marx Brothers.

No band has done more for Christmas, as far as I'm concerned, then the Yobs, the holiday alter ego of the early punk band The Boys. They released a series of singles, finally an album, and then a second album of holiday tunes. They included bizarre covers of traditional songs, such as a Silent Night and Jingle Bells, as well as originals such as this one, "Another Christmas." An absolute delight!

One Christmas I received a Weird Al Yankovic album which contained "Christmas at Ground Zero." I listened to that song with immense pleasure. I was such a huge Weird Al fan, his sense of humor suited me quite well. Even with time passed, I think this track stands up quite well. Rumor has it Weird Al wrote this song when his record company asked him to create a Christmas tune. I'm not sure what they were expecting, but they got SOMETHING all right.

The terribly named The Canadian Dollars released a song on one of Suburban Sprawl Music's annual Christmas anthologies. There's no video for it, but you can stream (or download) the song if you want to hear it. I would recommend the listen, even though I'm not in love with the sound, it's still a nice counter to the usual holiday pop drivel.
