Thanksgiving is next week, and that means it’s time to brace for two things: my Uncle Marty’s uncomfortable sense of humor and unawareness of personal space, and the holiday season. If there’s one thing that can make the latter more bearable (and, now that I think about it, perhaps the former), it’s a good ol’ fashion ugly Christmas sweater, and Foo Fighters have just released the most metal sweater of them all.
Available in red and green, the cheery pullovers feature a scowling Gingerbread Man front and center, complete with black eye makeup and an adorable row of inverted crosses down his belly. He stands betwixt a pair of reindeer skulls, mostly likely Blitzen and Donner, known troublemakers that they
are were. And what Xmas shirt would be complete without a string of festive stars? Or, at least in the sweaters’ case, upside-down pentagrams
Check them out above, and then order either sweater for $29.99 at the Foo’s webstore. Look, I’m Jewish, but I will hang up a blue-and-white stocking over the fireplace if someone promises to stuff this thing in it.
Just because, check out a performance of “Everlong” from KROQ’s Almost Christmas Acoustic 2006.
