Politically Incorrect Christmas
- Artist: Canned Band
- Format: CD
- Release Date:9/30/2008
These songs are not your grandma\'s Christmas carols. Classifying the style of music on this CD is no easy task. From the rock\'n\'roll version of \'God Rest Ye Merry Genteleman,\' to a \'So 80s-sounding\' techno rendition of \'Hark the Herald Angels sing, to an orchestral version of \'We three kings,\' each song is unique. An unusual blend of accoustical and electrical guitars, synthesizers, traditional-sounding brass, woodwind, and strings create instrumental versions of traditional Christmas carols sound like newly-written hymns. These songs can be your own Christmas karaoke CD. They can be the accompaniment for a church choir. Or they can just be background music for you and your family. The arrangements of each song are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.5 License. Musicians can FREELY alter, transform, or build upon this work under a license similar to this one. No hassles and no threatening calls from attorneys! Meanwhile, the politically correct crowd--those who hate the mere sound of the word \'Christmas,\' are panning this album in a big way. Here is what just a few of Canned Band's harshest critics have said about this album: "This album offends me. I hope it never sells in stores." --Elmo Phillip Suggins, religion editor, Stolling Rone magazine "Canned Band has made yet another blatant attempt to make a few extra capitalist bucks by creating new versions of songs about a corporate but petty bourgeois holiday. Plus, the musicians are non-union. UGH! Long live the workers!" --Lechi Stalinowski, American Socialist Party "Mark my words. Canned Band will become 'Banned Band' after this one. Will someone please turn on the air conditioner? It's awfully hot down here. " --the late Chadelyn Curry O'Hara, founder, Foundation for the Atheist Religion Toleration Society (FARTS). "I hate it, my kids hate it, my wife hates it, we all hate it, and we want everyone else to hate it as well. ----Clyde P. Bariscale, The Society for State and Church Separation (SSCS) "When I first heard this Canned Band CD, I thought it was the best music I had ever heard. Then someone told me that it had nothing but CHRISTMAS music on it, so I decided to burn my CD in my fireplace which is located below my holiday stockings and my holiday cards, and I hope others will do the same. Happy holidays!" --Ebeneezer Fudd, editor, Politically Correct Review. "Double-plus-ungood." --Winston Smith, consumer. "Two thumbs down." --Crisco and Everett, music critics for Naught-Rudder news service. \'Okay, so you\'ve got the Canned Band. Where\'s the Canned Chorus? Don\'t these songs have any words?\' --Anonymous With reviews like these, it is no wonder that \'normal\' Americans are buying this CD in droves. So...be the first on your block to own this blatlantly politically incorrect CD...before the politically correct crowd gets ahold of it.
