When Christmas Carols Are Given the Hard Rock Treatment…

…you end up wishing that electronic instruments did not exist. The Trans-Siberian Orchestra knows exactly how to ruin most of my favorite Christmas carols and while they’re at it, they create new Christmas songs that make you want to wear ear plugs when entering any store during the holiday season. When did anyone ever think it would be a good idea to turn Pachelbel’s Canon in D major into a Christmas song? 

Not only is this song terrible, this video uses is a collection of idyllic Thomas Kinkade scenes as a backdrop. It seems highly unlikely that a screeching electric guitar would ever find its way into one of the Painter of Light’s villages.
