A near perfect mixture of the not-so-sacred and the extremely profane, HORNY HOLIDAYS is also one of the best rock Christmas albums ever made--think Phil Spector's A CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR YOU with a lot more laughs. Here, Nixon mangles his way through the likes of "Good King Wenceslas" (in a fit of innovation, he dispenses with the lyrics altogether, replacing them with multiple la-las), out Karloff's Karloff on a sepulchral "Mr. Grinch," and generally reworks every holiday standard here with the maximum possible amount of double entendre. Yes, there are also relatively straight renditions of Chuck Berry's "Run Rudolph Run" and James Brown's protest classic "Santa Claus Go Straight to the Ghetto," but rest assured they're the exceptions.
