Here's our Holiday Hash Vol 2 for all of you hipsters out there who like to listen to bands with names that cause your parents to stare blankly when you first mention them, then repeat the band name slowly back at you before shaking their head and saying "how do they come up with something like that?"

Great list. Check out "(I Wanna Be)Dead By Christmas",for the dark side of Christmas humor.

I think the Julian C song is called "I Wish It Was Christmas Today"
