This is not your father's Christmas music. Or even your little sister's Backstreet Boys sugarplum-fairy dream dancing in her head. But it is a galvanizing collection of 18 cuts deep in the heart of the season, by some of the finest punk bands from rock's '70s and '80s days of rage. As much a profile of the legendary bands that made the music world safe for alternative rock a decade later, Punk Rock Xmas withstands the decibels of time with a number of outstanding performances. The Dickies rant and rave on "Silent Night" and Stiff Little Fingers reprise "White Christmas" with a vengeance, while blokes from the Sex Pistols and Thin Lizzy called the Greedies turn out a blistering "Merry Jingle." Fear spit out a nasty four-letter sentiment that's 45 seconds short, the Ramones weigh in with "Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight Tonight)," and Mojo Nixon, El Vez, and sundry others gleefully reinvent and deconstruct the sound and wounds of the season. A real stocking ripper. --Martin Keller

5.0 out of 5 stars What can I say? It's Christmas! May 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
OK. Pretend you're over twenty, you live alone, nobody invited you to their christmas party, and no girl will get in ten feet of your apartment. And the last thing you want to hear are jingly carols shrieked out by happy little orphans. What you need is to hear jingly carols shrieked out by your favorite punk bands! Yesindeedee (Ramone, that is). So decorate the tree with empty beer cans, write your name in the snow, hang up that mistleto and soon you'll hear ho-ho-ho!
This is the only Xmas album you can play even when it ain't the season. Especially "Daddy Drank Our Christmas Money" by TVTV$ (if anybody knows how the hell you're supposed to pronounce that band's name, please e-mail me), Pansy Division's "Homo Christmas" (wait 'til you hear it!), The Dickies hilariously awful variation of "Silent Night" and of course the Ramones' I-don't-wanna-fight-on-Christmas jingle.
Have a weary Christmas and a sloppy New Year!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dee Dee drank our Xmas money December 23, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a pretty good collection of punk Christmas songs. It opens with a fun novelty song that is not by a real punk band. Then we move on to the real punks. The quality of the material varies, but some of the best cuts are contributed by the Dickies, Sloppy Seconds, the Greedies and (naturally) the Ramones. But my personal favorite here is "Homo Christmas" by Pansy Division, which is hilarious. I have to mention the contributions by a couple of guys who are not usually associated with the punk genre. El Vez, the "Mexican Elvis", performs a surprisingly credible thrash punk version of "Feliz Navidad". And Mojo Nixon performs an unsurprisingly sloppy rewrite of "Louie Louie" called "Christmas Christmas". It's not really punk, and it's not really good. It sounds like an outtake from Mojo's lousy Christmas album, although it's not. If you are a fan of punk, especially "old school" punk, you should enjoy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely on Santa's naughty list! 4.5 stars. April 23, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Irreverent, humorous, and sort of nasty - What else would you expect from a "punk rock" Christmas album? From FEAR's "*u˘k Christmas," to PANSY DIVISION's "Homo Christmas" (they want to shove that candy-cane where?!?), to "Here Comes Santa's Pussy" by the FROGS, the PUNK ROCK XMAS compilation (mixed, of course, with copious amounts of booze) may be the panacea for all of your holiday problems. (Okay, probably not - but it's still a fun recording).

The following is the full list of songs:

1) The Ravers - (It's Gonna Be A) Punk Rock Christmas
2) The Dickies - Silent Night
3) Sloppy Seconds - Hooray For Santa Claus (Theme from "Santa Claus Conquers The Martians")
4) Fear - *u˘k Christmas
5) The Greedies - A Merry Jingle
6) The Damned - There Ain't No Sanity Claus
7) Pansy Division - Homo Christmas
8) Bouquet Of Veal - It's Christmas
9) The Celibate Rifles - Merry Xmas Blues
10) Ramones - Merry Christmas (I Don't Want To Fight Tonight)
11) Metal Mike, Alison & Julia - Deck The Halls
12) El Vez - Feliz Navi-Nada
13) Humpers - Run, Run Rudolph
14) TVTV$ - Daddy Drank Our Xmas Money
15) The Frogs - Here Comes Santa's Pussy
16) Mojo Nixon - Christmas Christmas
17) D.I. - Mr. Grinch
18) Stiff Little Fingers - White Christmas

5.0 out of 5 stars Punk Rock Xmas April 18, 2012
By Josh G
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an amazing, fun, and interesting album. If you like Punk Rock, you'll love this. If you like Christmas music, you'll love this. If you're easily offended, you should skip it. I loved this album because it's so much fun to listen to. My favorite songs would have to be It's Christmas by Boquet of Veal, Merry Christmas (I Don't Wanna Fight Tonight) by The Ramones, Run, Run Rudolph by Humpers, Daddy Drank Our Xmas Money by TVTV$. Homo Christmas by Pansy Division is absolutely hilarious. Buy this album if you want to be entertained.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mosh Pittin Fun January 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This review is written more for the parent looking for something to buy their punk musically inclined offspring for Christmas. Nutshelling it - if someone likes punk music, they will like this CD. So if you are looking for a Christmas gift for the hard to buy for - this should fill their stockings with glee.

It is a great XMAS album for punk rock fans and any one else with a sense of humor; you do need a sense of humor for some songs especially Homo Christmas which isn't exactly Bing Crosby (although do people still mosh pit? I am pretty uncool). Anyway, this is just what it says - A Punk Rock XMAS album. There are a lot of rockin songs from right off the start, with It's Gonna Be A Punk Rock Christmas by the Ravers to the final version of White Christmas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Tunes! February 8, 2009
By R. Pope
Format:Audio CD
This collection of punk rock Christmas songs is great. It is a wonderful, high-energy, guitar-heavy alternative to the holiday fluff on the radio. Warning -- some songs not suitable for your kids, but you'll love 'em.
