Video Views by JC: Ramones – Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight)
Holiday traditions are as unique and individual as the families that inspire them, and to me and mine, nothing brings on the seasonal cheer like playing questionable festival covers and original ballads by the rock and punk legends of years gone by. For full entertainment, extra points are awarded for irony and all-out derangement.
An all-time favourite, RHINO has re-released the 1989 classic music video for Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight). Featuring domestic altercations, dysfunctional relationships and pouffy hair, this gloriously terrible time capsule to simpler, yet still relatable times is a heart-warming reminder to keep a level head these holidays, and enjoy some decorations and libations for goodness’ sake, wherever you find yourself at this weird and wonderful time of year.
