It's Fuckin' December... Happy Holidays

Well, I’ve thought about doing this in the past. I’ll be the first to admit that I actually enjoy singing some Christmas carols. I grew up a singer, and some of the stuff is just outright fun to sing. Anyway, there is definitely LOADS of bad music out there regarding this season. However, there is some fun, funny, and decent shit out there as well. This show has a lot of that. I’m not going to pretend to be a “big fan” of every song, and I’m fairly certain there is going to be a song on here that nearly everyone will be like “What the fuck was he thinking including this crap?” 

This is a very manic show. I had a hard time coming up with a name for the show so I just went easy, and as anti-FCC as I could. So folks, It’s Fuckin’ December:
