Hark! The Herald Eels sing, and as you can see from the title, in a much more upbeat turn that their reputation suggests. Even famed miserabilist Mark “E” Everrett can have his spirits lifted by the holidays; and lifted they are, as he and the band tear through a two-minute thrash of distorted guitar, Hammond organ, pounding drums, and the obligatory jingle bells. The noise parts, only for a moment, for the bearded singer to announce something the likes of Creed have been preaching for years (and probably the best line in a Christmas song ever): “Baby Jesus, born to ROCK”.
