Published Oct 21, 2013Next week, California punk icons Bad Religion will kick off the impending holiday season with the release of their Christmas Songs, but you can get into the yuletide spirit extra early now by streaming the band's take on "O Come, O Come Emmanuel."
The speedy interpretation wraps chunky six-strings and Greg Graffin's familiar croon around the religious number, offering a classic West Coast melodic hardcore take on the hymn. It also ends with a hilariously scorching guitar solo. Rejoice indeed.
You can check out the track in the player down below.
As previously reported, Christmas Songs also runs through seasonal classics like "Little Drummer Boy" and "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," as well as a spruced-up version of the group's "American Jesus." The record drops October 29 through Epitaph Records.
