Christmas Ain't What it Used to Be

This is just wrong on so many levels. The heavy metal rock band, Twisted Sister, is releasing a Christmas album on October 17th titled A Twisted Christmas. When I first ran across this, I thought it was a joke, but the information is all on Twisted Sister's own official website. This is as "twisted" as Ron Jeremy starring in a children's film. It doesn't make sense.

The CD has ten traditional Christmas songs recorded with heavy metal guitars and a head-banging beat. The fourth track, I'll be Home for Christmas, features guest singer Lita Ford. Lita was one of the few female heavy metal musicians back in the 80's.

If you click the picture below, you can listen to I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus. The opening riff is somewhat reminiscent of Judas Priest's You've Got Another Thing Coming, but it goes downhill immediately once frontman Dee Snyder starts singing. Dee has a voice that is suited for belting out loud rock songs, but he falls short trying to hold a tune while singing Christmas melodies.
