Here Come The Christmas Zombies

Philadelphia 's Bah & the Humbugs are America's Premier Satiric Christmas Rock Band, or at least that's what their web site says. Bigger Than Santa, A 25th Anniversary Humbug Tribute is a double CD that either features 25 different bands paying tribute to Bah & the Humbugs, or Bah & the Humbugs pretending to be 25 different bands paying tribute to Bah & the Humbugs. One of those songs is "Here Come The Christmas Zombies," credited to Area 25, with a vocal that bears a striking resemblance to Fred Schneider of the B-52s who, if you're keeping score, has a Christmas band of his own called The Superions, and really likes "Fruitcake."
