"There aren't many things less punk than Christmas," writes Robert Wojtkiewicz  for The Bottom Line. The cheer, the merriment and the joy are an antithesis of the genre's foundations of anger and rebellion.  Why then, would a punk music outfit as respected and established as Bad Religion tackle a Christmas album?

Their motives aside, the result of Christmas Songs is a classic punk album with fast, hard-hitting sound set to yuletide favorites such as "O come, O come Emmanuel" and "White Christmas." Up-tempo drums, big guitar riffs and haunting harmonies — it's all here.

"Bad Religion have threatened to record an album of seasonal classics for years, and now they ve gone and done it, tackling eight chestnuts in their classic punk rock style. From 'White Christmas' with its nod to pioneers The Ramones, to the glorious choirboy intro to 'Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,' Christmas Songs is the record you need to get your holiday household's toes tapping." — Liner notes
