Corey Taylor releases Christmas single - and it's hilarious

Every year I get more and more annoyed with the whole Christmas season.  Every commercial on TV is at the very least set to Christmas carol background music, if not an all-out Christmas BUY BUY BUY SANTA REINDEER BELLS TREES GIFTS SHOW YOU CARE BUY THEM THIS motif.  I kinda feel like Charlie Brown in A Charlie Brown Christmas, wondering where we went wrong and how the real message of this season has been drowned out.  I'm beginning to, dare I say it, dislike this time of year.  Luckily, Stone Sour and Slipknot frontman and all around cool dude Corey Taylor has written an anthem for Scrooges like me.  It's called X-M@$ he claims he "wrote this in honor of crotchety, drunken bastards who don’t know the difference between a yuletide and a toolshed."  Someone get this man a book deal.

The video for the song is below.  After having seen Corey live and in several interviews, this song really captures his personality well.   Bah humbug.
