Artist: "Weird Al" Yankovic

Album: Polka Party!

Appears On (Mixes):

Song Notes: This is probably the most-frequently banned christmas song this side of Green Chri$tma$ by Stan Freberg. When it came out, it was frequently banned from airplay because it's about nuclear annihilation, which isn't a particularly cheery subject for a christmas song. Now, however, it's banned because "Ground Zero" happens to have another connotation in our culture, about as equally festive. It is a good song, though, though it's always been a bit unsettling... though, it's intended to be. The video, the first directed by Al, is a collage of various cold-war era propaganda films (as, well, it did come out in the cold war). Cheery and chilling at the same time! - Rev. Syung Myung Me
