Bob Rivers & Friends

White Trash Christmas (Atlantic) If you've ever peed in the snow, harbored sexual fantasies about Mrs. Claus, or forgotten to pick up a relative at the airport because you got high, Canadian Bob Rivers is speaking directly to you, my friend. Some tracks misfire, like the insipid "Have Yourself an Ozzy Little Christmas," but a punk rock "Silent Night," Eminem-style "Jingle Bells," and the brilliant "Osama Got Run Over by a Reindeer" make White Trash Christmas a year-round winner.
