King Diamond – No Presents for Christmas

What I would give to see this as Christmas number one in the UK, rather than letting the winner of a fading reality singing competition butcher another pop or rock song. I know my isn’t going to come true, as the sheeple probably think King Diamond is another playing card and not the dark overlord of all things great about metal. Of all the alternative Christmas songs, this is surely one of the best.

Roadrunner Records have rereleased Diamond’s first solo song officially, twenty-seven years after initially being released. Come on folks, let’s try and get something going. It’s a long shot but if we can get this song into the Top 40 on Sunday, wouldn’t that be great for a laugh, if just for this week?
