2015 Musical Advent Calendar: Christmas is Awesome

Christmas is Awesome, and so is today’s song.

Coming from their 2009 album We Should Have Gone to University, “Christmas is Awesome” by Reuben is metal as hell, and it’s more fun than you deserve. The album itself is a compilation produced after the band went on “indefinite hiatus.” We always lose the good ones too soon.

If the album name didn’t tip you off, this is a British group, but the only way you’ll notice it in-song is via a few word choices in the thoughtfully provided subtitles (complete with a helpful bouncing skull!).

Beyond the subtitles, they seem quite polite in general:

2000 years ago

A little boy was born

To save the human race

Well it’s your birthday

So have a party!

We’re sorry about all of that “nailed to a cross” business

See? Polite.

Even holiday metal must stand before THE TEST.

  1. Does it mention Christmas by name? Hell yes!
  2. Are there bells in it? Yes, but I think only at the beginning.
  3. Is it jolly? Well … no, but it will get you AMPED to open presents, or just about anything, really.

This song needs to be part of your regular holiday rotation, although you won’t have much throat left after if you sing along.

I don’t have a good joke about eleven days. As always, you can check out the full list here, and feel free to hit me up with your suggestions in the comments or on Twitter at @thebobthe.
