Another Side of Santa Claus

by Stephanie Benson  |  November 23, 2011

Kris Kringle is quite the mystery. Some believe he's just a jolly good fella that can do no wrong; others are a little more suspicious. What exactly does he do with those reindeer in the off-season? Who is he really kissing under the mistletoe? Artists like The Killers, Sonic Youth, They Might Be Giants, Sufjan Stevens and, of course, Weird Al have all questioned Santa's greater motives. The songs featured in this playlist suggest a different side to the typical portrayal of good ol' St. Nick. Is he really a gun-carryin', mullet-sportin', daddy-kissin' slave driver? Free the elves!
