Have yourself a twisted little Christmas,
This review is from: Twisted Christmas (Audio CD)This is the perfect Christmas album for all your twisted friends, particularly if they wear black mascara and spandex and call themselves SMFs. It's probably not a good choice for your grandmother or parish priest, but then again you know them better than I do.
Heavy metal versions of Christmas songs are one thing, but when "O Come All Ye Faithful" begins sounding like "We're Not Gonna Take It" it's a whole new season. Each of the songs gets a Twisted tweak, but none more so than "Heavy Metal Christmas" which is the TS version of "The Twelve Days of Christmas". Forget the partridge and turtle doves, leaping lords and other dumb gifts, and get the heavy metal gift list instead:
On my heavy metal Christmas my true love gave to me,
12 Silver crosses
11 Black mascaras
10 Pairs of platforms
9 Tattered t-shirts
7 Leather jackets
6 Cans of hairspray
5 Skull earrings
4 Quarts of Jack
3 Studded belts
2 Pairs of spandex pants
And a tattoo of Ozzy!
Extra points awarded for TS for having the guts to twist Christmas.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a twisted Christmas.

Hmm, I was a bit surprised by your review here, Amanda. I see your reviews fairly often on Amazon and you never struck me as a fan of metal, let alone freakin' Twisted Sister. Well, Merry twisted Christmas!!

Hi Durrkk - I bought "Stay Hungry" (on LP) the day it was released. I also used to listen to Autograph, Wasp, Dokken, Accept, Quiet Riot, AC/DC and more. Aaaaah, the good old days! :)
Merry twisted Christmas to you too
