    Day 2: Hark! The Herald Angels Sing by Bad Religion

    For a pretty religiously indifferent band, they sure did put out an amazing Christmas album.

    Day 4: Scott Weiland died on Dec. 3 last year and I should have done this yesterday but I had a dumb and didn't think to do it. So have this uber ultra rare Stone Temple Pilots performance of "Christmas Time is Here"....



    RIP Scott. You are missed.

    Day 5

    Friday night was our company Christmas party and the theme was "New York", they had a yellow cab inside the venue that had an advertisement on the top that said "Fairy Tale of New York", and the program had Christmas music. So did they play or sing Fairy Tale of New York? No, they didn't.

    So here it is: possibly the finest Christmas songs in the past 30 years.
