Sit N Spin Top 10 Best Punk Christmas Songs from OC Weekly

What are your favorite Punk Rock Christmas songs???
The 10 Best Punk Christmas Songs
By OC Weekly Contributor
Christmas is 1 week away and with it will come the fateful holiday party where someone, hopefully not you, drinks too much and tells off a roomful of sullen friends and relations. Far from a time of universal peace and joy, the winter holidays can be fraught with familial resentment and animosity. This makes the season a perfect time to dust off your old punk rock records. We know holiday prep is major drain on time, so as our gift to you, we've assembled a playlist of our 10 favorite Christmas punk songs. Now you should have plenty of time to write insincere cards to people you see once a year.
10. Merry Christmas (I Don't Wanna Fight Tonight), The Ramones
We had no idea Howard Stern sang in one of those bands that the guys at our college radio station never shut up about. Howard, you're so versatile! Witty lyrics, too.
9. Silent Night, The Dickies
We knew a Mormon kid in high school whose parents only let him keep his Dickies records because he lied and said the band is named after the Dickies brand of work pants, not penises. We always wondered if The Dickies ever got into a legal battle over their name with that other punk band, The Dicks. It would have made for a great episode of the People's Court. Next up: "The Dickies versus The Dicks."
8. There Ain't No Sanity Clause, The Damned
The Damned is hailed as one of the first and finest Goth bands, a distinction that only means something if you are in the Damned or care about men who voluntarily wear eyeliner. The Damned has had so many lineup changes that we're pretty sure the guy who fixes our photocopier played with them in the 1990's (evidence: he has a British accent and wears eyeliner and when he doesn't drink coffee, he looks ashen, like a corpse). We therefore consider ourselves members of the extended Damned family. For the record, we also care about men who wear eyeliner, deeply so.
7. Homo Christmas, Pansy Division
Pansy Division was a C+ pop punk band whose being openly gay scored them extra press at a time when every third band signed to a major label was pop punk. Homo Christmas is their lighthearted send-up of the holiday.
6. Hooray For Santa Claus, Sloppy Seconds
Sloppy Seconds are the unrecognized founding fathers of American over-sharing. If these guys wrote self-aware TV scripts rather than 3-minute songs, they would be lionized right alongside Lena Dunham for their portrayal of the slothful lives of young, inessential Americans. We cannot travel back in time and give the band a tip about how their ideas would make for great television, but we can at least include their Christmas song on this list.
5. Hark, The Herald Angels Sing, Bad Religion
Bad Religion is a band of highly-educated, articulate men in their 50's who for the last 30 years have insisted they are true punks and that their style of middle-class respectability can co-exist with their animosity toward middle-class respectability. Bad Religion is so pure in their aesthetic that they have played the same chord progression for 30 years, albeit with subtle shifts to its rhythm, which is achieved by hiring an entirely new drummer on every other record. Let us be clear - you do not mess with Bad Religion. If you taunt Bad Religion, all six of them will pile into singer Greg Graffin's SUV and park outside your bedroom window. The entirety of Bad Religion will step out of Greg's SUV and cross their arms in the same intimidating manner they do on their album covers. Bad Religion will then shout, in unison so as to emasculate you, "Come on outside, tough guy! We're Bad Religion and we're standing on your lawn!"
4. White Christmas, Stiff Little Fingers
SLF is almost too good a band to play Christmas music, but they did, and the proof is in the video above.
3. Oi to the World, The Vandals
Like the guys in Bad Religion, these Huntington Beach punk veterans embodied the spirit of Christmas and suburban overcompensation by recording not just one Christmas song but an entire album's worth. We recommend "Christmastime for my Penis," another example of their deft lyrical elegance. We also recommend seeing them live because Josh Freese is an astounding drummer.
2. F*ck Christmas, FEAR
FEAR vocalist Lee Ving is a man who can crash house parties and drink for free because he looks like someone who tucks weapons into the lining of his leather jacket. As a paragon of pre-sensitivity training America, Ving always made his attitude towards the rest of the world explicit via lyrics and song titles such as "I Don't Care About You." When Guns N' Roses recorded that tune on their Spaghetti Incident record, FEAR became a band everyone cited as an influence but whom few people bothered to see once Ving reassembled the group. Maybe that's why Ving is cranky enough to write a song called "F*ck Christmas." Or maybe it's because he grew up in Philadelphia. We like Christmas because gifts are fantastic, but we like Lee Ving better. Yet this is only our second favorite punk Christmas song.
I’m stoked about SRV and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. Thoughts Rockaholics??
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced its class of 2015.
The artists to be enshrined next year are The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, Lou Reed, Green Day, Bill Withers, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts. Ringo Starr is being given the Award for Musical Excellence. (He is already in as a member of The Beatles.) The "5" Royales are being recognized with theEarly Influence Award.
The 30th annual induction ceremony will be held April 18th at Cleveland’s Public Hall. Tickets go on sale on Thursday.
The inductees were chosen by a voting body of more than 700 artists, critics, historians and members of the music industry. To be eligible for election this year, a nominee had to release his or her first recording no later than 1989.
This year's nominees who did not make the cut were Sting, Chic, Kraftwerk, The Marvelettes, N.W.A, Nine Inch Nails, The Smiths, The Spinners and War.
Four of the top five vote-getters in the online ballot made it in. Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble grabbed 30 percent of the vote -- more than 18 million votes -- and were followed by Nine Inch Nails with 22 percent, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts with 15 percent, Bill Withers with 6.5 percent and The Paul Butterfield Blues Band with 6.25 percent. Nine Inch Nails did not make the cut.
This will be the second time Lou Reed is inducted, having gone in with the Velvet Underground in 1996.
Green Day, with all its members being 42 years old, are one of the youngest acts ever to be inducted. It appears that only three members of both the Jackson 5 and Red Hot Chili Peppers were the same age or younger when they were inducted in, respectively, 1997 and 2012.
