A Very Vandal Christmas

While most of The Vandals aren’t religious in any way, it must be said that this holiday has inspired to some profoundly beautiful music and art. Sometimes this lies in the areas where an artist’s bleak reality falls short of the harsh glare of Christmas light displays and socially enforced cheer. Sometimes it’s just about having the baubles to be unapologetically happy for a while, in the face of 11 underwhelming months that say you shouldn’t.

We have a lot of time for songs on this site, and we’re offering 12 of our favourite Christmas tunes over the next 12 days, all available in a playlist at the end. Click and enjoy:
