Damn That Holiday: Satan.8

Alfred pieces together “Curtain Call 2, Satanic Imagery” with busted rhymes like We don’t want Satanism in hip hip hip hop. This time it’s earnest.

IceGoat holds anti-Mass with the metallic “Satan Claws.” We may no longer be in Christmas, Toto.

Mark Lavigne whispers out the prayer “Satan, I Want Her for Christmas.” Indie pop with no looking back.

Damn That Holiday: Satan.7

BARDŁOG chants out “santa may be a satan” to a middling metal backdrop. So, you can make out the so-called lyrics. But i’m not sure you’ll cheer over that.

satanmas” by fun yunz is more yelling that’s not quite punk/metal. More fun for them than us.

Odd and amateurish, but antic–“What Would Satan Want for Christmas?” is the Hey Nunnie Nunnie! spoken/sung interactive kids-pop gospel answer. Involved. And a twist ending.

Satan’s Holiday Cheer” by Smee is the best of the amateur bunch with unplugged rock’n’roll and dreamlike whimsy.

Damn That Holiday: Satan.6

Satan’s Christmas Tree of Fiery Shit​-​Filled Death” by Aristocorpse is merely another BLUE ALERT metal rage-filled antiestablishment announcement. Moving on….

Marlboro regrets celebrating “Christmas Everyday” pretty bad. He starts confusing God and The Devil, blaming whomever comes to mind. Satan go swallow a tack he declares, to get even with his folk rock.

Emit Bloch (with Michael Vinaver), equally hungover, regrets that “I Mispelt Santa, Satan.” No horrors are visited upon this misdeed, but children cried. Not ’cause of the chill folk pop melody, though. Oh no.

Damn That Holiday: Satan.5

In “Satan Won The War On Christmas” by Bradley Palermo & The Shadow Queens the Hell King is shown to own our souls anyway, so our Xmas is on his terms. Metal edged rock with an axe to grind, albeit gently.

Billy Castillo doesn’t have a lot to say when he sings “Satanic Christmas.” Apart from an infernal plug for Taco Bell, it’s just chanting for a bit. Then there’s a rant. Gregorian pop.

Cynical Christmas Carols (Hail Santa)” by Satan’s Basement is metal ravings about a self harmer realizing the demons are dragging him away from the angels. To the tune of ‘Jingle Bells.’

Oh yeah we’ve been waitin’ For Christmas with Satan” by James White & The Blacks. Extra crunchy experimental jazz backs this peripeteia of expectation. (Satan throws the best Christmas party ever!)

Damn That Holiday: Satan.4

Melodicka Bros estimate filtering Mariah’s “All I Want for Christmas is You, Satan” with fierce metal makes it a better song. Well, almost.

Frank Barrow hits ‘White Christmas’ hard with “Satan’s Birthday.” This echoic carol is a Wiki entry on all the un-Christian aspects of Xmas. Amaze your friends with this info!

The Satanic Temple butchers “Hark! The Fallen Angels Sing!” but not musically. Apart from some dysphonia, the crux of deviltry is in the lyrics.

Absinthe Green vamps up “Satan Baby” (based on… you got it) promising murder and mayhem, rather than asking for much. Good minion.

Better, those same The Satanic Temple skiddy-bop-doo up ‘Gentlemen’ with a kickin’ cool jazz verzh called “Blessings of Knowledge and Fruit.” Workable propaganda for the deuce hisself.

Damn That Holiday: Satan.2

Dated’s “Satan Claus” is word salad to electronica. Just seems to fit.

ApophisDaGod figures a general perversion of all that is good turns Santa to Satan. Hence, the parody “Satan Claus is Coming to Town.” Nowhere to hide.

Another ‘coming to Town’ parody, “Tor Wants to Spoil the Party” is mostly spoken. Tor Hershman claims there’s no Jesus or Satan, but confuses them together nonetheless. Too many drugs? Not enough drugs?

The Hot Buttered Elves begin with backward spinning, but jazz up the slow-pop for a fairly long-winded “Satan Claus.” Not as scary as pedagogical.

Damn That Holiday: Satan.1

Did i say we wouldn’t have any more Santa = Satan…? Well, i lied. The devil made me do it.

Indigo introduces the idea with simplicity and modulation in the tiring pop “Santa is Satan.” Catchy if you can.

Aurelio Voltaire filksings “Santa Claus is Satan” as a semantics exercise. Sophomoric in the best ways.

Arne Åsmund uses ASMR indie coolness to describe “Satan Claus” as another Krampus, tearing up the house and snatching littl’uns. Creepy.

Damn That Holiday: Satan.0

The original Bible (OT) doesn’t feature much Satan, just some snake in a tree. The New Testament feeds the need people had back then for the celestial or more-than-human with angels and demons and their stories. Temptations and accusations become the incarnate evil, the horned one.

The whole anagram thing has been debated before on the blog. So let’s avoid the devil with the jolly white beard.

Is being the first on Santa(God)’s list the same as being the “Last on Satan’s List“? Fireworks metals the answer in hard-to-follow parts.

Music Vault kicks a Bossa nova beat to wish “Merry Christmas Satan.” See, this time of the year is his fave-o due to all the inviolate inhumanity inherent in us all.

Damn That Holiday: devil.8

Fooling around Melodicka Bros have taken Slipknot’s nasty “The Devil in I” and cast it into Xmas music. Awful pretty. Maybe for your church choir–?

Luna Morning Star have made their “Even the Devil Likes Christmas” an electronic experiment… of your patience!

Who’s the devil? You are! You’re the devil!! “Slick Nick, You Devil You” is Fishbone’s gospelly pop to point out Santa’s failings. Guess he‘s not on anyone’s list.

Jim Barnett places Scratch at the Nativity with crazy honkytonk in “‘Ol Devil Raids Christmas.” They debate JC’s potential influence through Christmas (He’s a baby, natch) and The Devil begins to slip… STAY TUNED
