I'm a big fan of FEARLESS RECORDS' "PUNK GOES" series, something I've noted over the years, and having written a retrospective about the series' first decade back in 2010. I'd later tackle PUNK GOES CLASSIC ROCK and another of the PUNK GOES POP releases formally, and while I didn't review them, I'd still follow along for the more recent releases. Now, after being rumored for quite some time (especially when 'TIS THE SEASON TO BE FEARLESS hit the streets), PUNK GOES CHRISTMAS is official, and will hit stores on November 5, and you can count me interested. While it was technically announced last month, I've just really been trying to get closer to November to start Holiday coverage, and while this is technically "for grownups," I filed it under "kids and family" because, hey - it's X-mas! Check out the tracklisting below...
