Who ever said you can’t have some rock and roll with your Christmas tunes? Back in 2008, hard-rock singer/songwriter Alice Cooper released a totally badass version of the 1934 “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”, and it’s infused with all of the extravagant and theatrical fashion we’d always expect from Alice Cooper. From the 2008 Christmas hard-rock compilation album We Wish You A Metal Xmas and A Headbanging New Year, this version of the classic Christmas tune will have you headbanging with some holiday spirit!

Featuring artists John 5 (Guitarist), Billy Sheehan (Bassist), and Vinny Apice (Drummer), this version of “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” will have you never wanting to listen to the original ever again. We Wish You A Metal Xmas and A Headbanging New Year featured several different hard-rock artists, including Jeff Scott Soto (Kryst The Conqueror), Lemmy (Motorhead), Ronny James Dio (Black Sabbath), and Geoff Tate (Queensryche), as well as many, many more.

Listen to Alice Cooper’s version of “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” and tell us in the comments if you’ll be celebrating the Christmas season with some hard-rock Christmas carols this year! We Wish You A Metal Xmas and A Headbanging New Year can be purchased on Amazon for as little as $3.00, and comes with unlimited streaming. That’s one heck of a deal!
