Filed under “How did we ever get by without this?”, it’s the Twisted Sister Twisted Christmas album.
Heavy metal versions of Christmas songs are one thing, but when “O Come All Ye Faithful” begins sounding like “We’re Not Gonna Take It” it’s a whole new season. Each of the songs gets a Twisted tweak, but none more so than “Heavy Metal Christmas” which is the TS version of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”. Forget the partridge and turtle doves, leaping lords and other dumb gifts, and get the heavy metal gift list instead:
On my heavy metal Christmas my true love gave to me,
12 Silver crosses
11 Black mascaras
10 Pairs of platforms
9 Tattered t-shirts
7 Leather jackets
6 Cans of hairspray
5 Skull earrings
4 Quarts of Jack
3 Studded belts
2 Pairs of spandex pants
And a tattoo of Ozzy!
Extra points awarded for TS for having the guts to twist Christmas.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a twisted Christmas.
To echo what one reviwer said, this is probably not the holiday CD for your parish priest.
