The introduction is very clever. It begins with a very brief presentation of a traditional 1950's style of the carol, that is quickly derailed (with a great sound effect), and picked up by a more modern and upbeat sound. The instrumental part of the introduction is a bit long for the audio listener, but the audience is cheering, so it makes me wonder what the band was doing on stage that was so entertaining. It was Vegas, so I'm sure it was interesting! ;)

And then, with a seriously awesome drumroll introduction, the lyrics began. While they got off to a bit of a rocky start, they quickly corrected course and began to soar. The repeated refrain of, "Ho, ho, ho, let's go!" began the full-on metal version of the song. The electric guitar parts are excellent. I probably would not have listened to this song had I not picked it up on a free promotion, but it's good.

Thank you, Twisted Sister, thank you, Las Vegas Hilton, and thank you, Amazon, for delivering this tasty steaming slab of hard rock -- no, it's not metal -- to us for free. I've taken the liberty of correcting the song name to "Have Yourself A Merry LITTLE Christmas / Powerhouse" and adding three songwriters' names: Hugh Martin/Ralph Blane for "HYAMLC" and Raymond Scott for "Powerhouse," which takes up the first two minutes of the track. If you've ever seen a Warner Bros. cartoon, you've heard "Powerhouse" -- just imagine any scene with an assembly line.

Well, it's Twisted Sister, live. Which should tell you a lot. Hard Rock. Not much of the Christmas carol in the beginning but starts working half way through. Some good licks. And wicked Chops. Good solos by I've forgotten who, which tells you how memorable they were. Not one I'd listen to all day, or do as background music. But, it got me going.

Went back to the 2009 album in my library and this song is representative.

Go ahead, gift yourself. You'll be rockn out.

Beatles were my style and I'm old enough to have purchased "I want To Hold Your Hand" when it was first released in 1964. As an old radio and party DJ, I've played some Twisted Sister over the years. When I saw Amazon was offering a free download of this cut, I figured, What they hey." I haven't listed to it yet...thus the middle ground rating.

Didn't like it all but it was a freebie from Amazon a Christmas time so I downloaded in my Amazon Cloud player just for the heck of it. Just wasn't my style of music.

Not much to say about this product, but that it was a nice different version of the classic song. I love Twisted Sister, so when I saw the chance to get this, I did!

Not bad. Not my favorite rendition of this song, but it is exactly what I expected after reading the artist name. Thanks for the free Christmas song, Amazon!
