5.0 out of 5 stars Good, warm, suicidal, family Christmas fun! August 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This has to be the Vandals' musical masturpiece! It's is ridiculous, yet true, with more obsecnity and insanity than Christmas itself. Songs like Thanx for nothing and A gun for christmas are excellent parodies; and Hanging myself from the tree and Christmas time for my... are strangely emotional ballads while maintaining a high level of humor. The whole thing ends with a beautifully orchestrated instrumental medley that shows just how hard the band worked on this one. If you must own one Vandals album... or one Christmas album, let this be the one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Punk Rock Christmas Cheer December 25, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD is extremely amuzing. With songs like "Grandpa's last Christmas" and "My First Christmas as a Woman" who can go wrong?!? The songs are not only funny, but very cool too. My favorites are "Oi to the World" (No Doubt sings it too) and "Here I am Lord" (which has the coolest bass line I have ever heard). This is a definate must-have. So get it!!! It is very hard to find!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not a fan of punk but I loved this album December 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This may not be the ideal album for the entire family sitting around the fireplace on Christmas Eve, but it's still a Christmas classic. "My Frst X-mas (as a Woman)" and "Christmas Time for My [...]" are sweetly melodic and and the lyrics are hilarious. "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairies" is a little more hardcore but the theme from The Nutcracker is cleverly woven into the electric guitar insanity. There is something here for people of all sorts of musical tastes, and it makes an excellent offbeat gift for people other than your grandparents.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST VANDALS ALBUM November 18, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What a great album for the holidays. I always wondered what it would be like to have mt first christmas as a woman. This Vandals album, their first released on their own label(kung Fu records), is probably the best album of theirs(tied with sweatin to the oldies). If you don't have any other vandal albums get this one. it is funny, christmasy, and very catchy. Can't go wrong with this album, and remeber. . . Oi to the punks, and Oi to the skins, and oi to the world and everybody in it

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas Punk... May 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I think every genre of music with the possible exception of death metal has its christmas albums. The Vandals's Oi to the World! is hardly original, there have been punk Christmas compilations since the late 70s, but this one is one of the better punk takes on Christmas. Each song rings with juvenille humour and sardonic holiday cheer.

Not every song is a Christmas classic, but some that really shine are "Gun for Christmas" and "My First Christmas as a Woman." Those two songs have concepts that carry them through whatever troubles they might have had. Hell, just saying the words "gun for christmas" will get a chuckle out of many people. "Christmastime for My Penis" is an ode to the organ that has kept our specie alive for the past few million years (even the femenists need to thank it a little).

Some of the songs are medioce, "C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S" comes to mind right off the bat, but overall, this album is one of the more memborable Christmas albums ever made. OI to the world and everybody wins.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Christmas....I mean...Punk Rock Classic January 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What can I say? This album has been floating around for years and still never ceases to amaze me. This is a classic album for any fan of Punk Rock or Music in general. The songs are classic Vandals...Biting, sarcasm, ironic, and catchy. For those who say punk rock is a bunch of noise, I say listen to this album to hear that punk rockers know how to play their instruments and can actually create a cohesive vision. I listened to this album every year until it was stolen. I finally re-purchased it and it will again continue to be a yearly tradition at my household.

As for the music....Gun for Christmas...even more appropriate today than when it was originally written. With our media focus on scaring the living death out of us each day, this song really hits home. Grandpa's last Christmas...Who can't relate to this one. For those who are often disapointed we have Thanks for Nothing. Thats right, a bitter song about giving plenty and getting nothing in return. The classic Oi to the World covered by many great bands. This song has become a punk rock anthem. I won't delve into the rest but the album does set the tone for a great Christmas and reminds us that the holidays aren't about getting and giving gifts. Its about more than that. What is is? I haven't figured it out yet. -Chris Diablo, 2011

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Punk Rock June 11, 2000
By A Customer
This album is a great punk album, plain and simple. It's a classic for a reason. Check out "Oi To The World" and "My First Christmas As A Woman" especially.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album! October 25, 2007
By Greg
Format:Audio CD
This is a good example of a great 90's punk album. It's Christmas music fused with different styles of punk. Every song is different. It's kind of like the white album of Xmas punk. A Gun For X-mas and Thanks For Nothing are hardcore songs. Oi to the World! is Oi punk. Here I am Lord is a catchy, vocally tedious cover done Ska and I Don't Believe in Santa Claus could've come from an 80's Anarcho band. It's not a serious album by any means. I mean, there's a song called Christmas time for my penis. Still, Oi to the World! has some genius in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Bag of Goodies
Though several of the songs bend good taste to the breaking point, there are many that are good for a laugh and several that point to the sad and tragic realities of Christmas.
