    As the season is upon us (for much of the western world) I find that the only christmas music I can stand comes out of the 40s/50s and maybe a bit of pre-Beatles 60s. All modern albums i have ever listened have a hint of the ironic about them that kills it for me. So I ask, is it possible to make a good unironic christmas album now? Or have we reached the point of no return?

    For example, there is no possible way that the upcoming christmas album by Bad Religion is going to be a classic for future generations.

    No. All Christmas music is bad. If it were good, you'd want to play it at other times of the year. It only gets played at Christmas because the only time people can stomach that crap is when they're drinking lots of alcoholic egg nog and planning how to sleep with a hot co-worker at the Christmas party.

    The Bad Religion album isn't "upcoming." It was released weeks ago.

    Also, it's badass.

    I can't believe I didn't think of this song when I first saw this thread, but the matter is now closed.
