    Abosolutly no cover whatsoever. If they do I will have a ceremonial burning of all LP's, CD's, Tapes, Programmes, T-Shirts - et al.

    Bah humbug - F*CK CHRISTMAS!

    Couldn't have put it better myself. I'm not a fond lover of Christmas songs, or indeed, Christmas itself! :bah: I do like "Fairytale of New York" by The Pogues/Kirsty McColl, though, and "The Power of Love" by Frankie Goes To Hollywood, oh and "Caravan of Love" by The Housemartins (ok, those two aren't Christmas songs, as such, but they were out at Christmas!)

    However, can't say I'd want to hear Saxon or anyone else doing covers of any of 'em.

    Every song Saxon have covered so far they have ruined.But being as this a bit FUN.Then that Darkness one was great FUN.But for me it would have to peace on earth/little drummer boy,with Lemmy doing the Bing Crosby part.

    No need to apologise mate, I don't think anyone was offended. I just think no one would want Saxon doing a naff christmas song!

    They must be nuts!!! lol :lol:
    I get a week off work, and eat lots of good food, and drink plenty of beer, wine, e.t.c. I cant wait :kickass:
    (im not into the religious stuff though)

    The only christmas song i have ever liked, was the one Thin Lizzy and the Sex Pistols did in the late 70's. Its usually on the 'top of the pops 2' christmas show.

    I thought The Darkness song the other year was too slow and not very interesting (it should have been a lot better).

    Wassail! Wassail! All Over The Town

    "Mr. Bell notes: "It is still customary in many parts of England to hand round the
    wassail, or health-bowl, on New-Year's Eve. The custom is supposed
    to be of Saxon origin, and to be derived from one of the
    observances of the Feast of Yule. "

    How about King Diamond's 'No presents for Christmas' or AC/DC's 'Mistress for Christmas'.Not too traditional,but Christmas is mentioned.

    Who was getting serious? Not I, that's for sure. I just don't like Christmas. But so as not to spoil the FUN, I will say Saxon should cover White Christmas.
