RAT Rock News

Merry Christmas!  Looking for some songs to help you rock around your tree?  Start cranking these six tracks!

 

Small Town Titans – “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch”

The trio from York, Pa. may have recorded the most menacing cover of this track we’ve ever heard. (Bonus points to drummer Johnny Ross for his Paul Heyman t-shirt. For that alone, you’ve made our “Nice” list.)

 

August Burns Red – “Last Christmas”

Who knew this Wham! Christmas classic could kick so much ass?

 

Rob Halford – “O Holy Night”

Honestly, The Metal God could sing damn near anything, and we’d love it, but this cover is truly something else.

 

Alice Cooper – “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”

Only Alice Cooper could make this cheery song a little scary.

 

Twisted Sister – “Oh Come All Ye Faithful”

Twisted Sister doesn’t veer too far from the source material but still manage to inject some edge into this Christmas favorite.

 

Lemmy Kilmister – “Run Run Rudolph”

Oh, Lemmy…how we miss your growl!
