The Rebel Black Dot Christmas Song of the Day

Barenaked Ladies, "Jingle Bells" from Barenaked for the Holidays (The Last Angry Man)

Commentary: This rendition of "Jingle Bells" is two songs in one. The front half of the almost four-minute track is solemn, almost maudlin; the back half is manic, including the Batman-themed variant lyrics every kid learns on the playground.

Batmobile lost its wheel,
And the Joker got away!…"
