Now that Christmas has passed, let’s get serious. Many folks, including myself, struggle to afford buying gifts for even our most cherished loved ones. This is the rock anthem for those in this situation.

Zombies Invade Christmas – Stefan Kartenberg

Wait a minute… I’m not sure if this song is a Halloween song or a Christmas song. Whatever; on the pile it goes! Be sure to barricade your windows and doors because “Zombies Invade Christmas” is today’s song! Hit the link for the download!


Amanita Muscaria – Jeris

Christmas is closing in, and it can be stressful, but no worries, man. It’s aaaalllll good.  Have you met Amanita Muscaria?
Yeeeeeah, this song may or may not be about seasonally colored shrooms.

God Rest Ye Merry (Instrumental) – Copperhead

As if you didn’t see this coming, we’ve got a theme week! Starting off this holiday extravaganza is a bad ass rock instrumental of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” by Copperhead. If you liked the Trans Siberia Orchestra’s version of “Carol of Bells”, you’ll like this.

The secondary theme for this week is that all of the music will be coming from Like this track.


Dvorak’s 8 Humoresques, Op. 101, B. 187 – OnClassical

You may not have known the name, but you’ve heard this song before. If you’re a fan of Animaniacs, it was the theme song of Slappy the Squirrel. This version was released as part of a large compilation of piano favorites by OnClassical. An independent Italian label, OnClassical is known for its long history with the Creative Commons and the high quality of its classical library.

You can download this song and the rest of the Piano Favorites on Jamendo.


Flock of Birds – Alexandria

I was starting to feel bad due to the underrepresentation of metal on SotC, but then I ran into this song and I KNEW WHAT I MUST DO. Enter Russian melodic metal group Alexandria and their track “Flock of Birds”. I’m totally digging this song. You can grab it on Jamendo.


Cupid Kills – Falling Blind

Today’s track is by Seattle band Falling Blind’s  2010 album “Comets”. Reminds me of the kind of pop rock hits of the mid 2000’s. You can download the whole album on
