The ‘Christmas Songs’ tracklisting is as follows:

‘Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
’
‘O Come All Ye Faithful
’
‘O Come, O Come Emmanuel
’
‘White Christmas
’
‘Little Drummer Boy
’
‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
’
‘What Child Is This?

‘Angels We Have Heard On High

Bad Religion formed in LA in 1979. While frontman Greg Graffin has remained a constant in the band, the lineup has changed several times. Its current incarnation features Graffin alongside Brett Gurewitz and Jay Bentley. The band have released 16 studio albums to date – their last LP was ‘True North’, which came out in January 2013.
