The Stocking Stuffers - Santa's Gonna Get His Head Kicked In Tonight

I'm absolutely delighted that someone chose to make a Christmas song out of this 60's garage-punk nugget by  Fleetwood Mac (and maybe a little more notably by The Rezillos). As cheesy as it looks, this ain't no lump of coal! This 7" was put together by LIVE 105 DJ Big Rick Stuart and featured the bay area female Ramones-tribute band The Ramonas as well as other LIVE 105 personnel. Apparently this was done as a fundraiser for the Salvation Army, who refused the donation after they learned the title of the song. Now thats the Christmas spirit! The b-side is the "Karoke" version and while it leaves the vocal duties in the hands of the listener, they were clever enough to leave the gang vocals intact. I also get a kick out of whats printed below the fine print on the reverse side: "Home taping is killing the music business, GO FOR IT !!" Now thats some good advice.
