It's been 10 years since comedy rockers PSYCHOSTICK unleashed their holiday album "The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride". Indeed, it's an off-the-radar choice for your holiday playlist, and with it being a little hard to come by in streaming form (not even on Spotify), the band is sharing it as a full stream in honor of its 10th anniversary. Now you can sit next to the fireplace while cranking up modern classics such as "Jingle Bell Metal", "Holiday Hate", "Jolly Old Sadist", "Red Snow" and more. Not for the kids, folks. Not this time. Stream it below!
PSYCHOSTICK are pretty notorious when it comes to the realm of comedic metal. Strange thing is, they've also crossed-over into the realm of slightly dated, yet completely classic educational programming in recent times, and the start was their cover of the READING RAINBOW theme early last year. Now they're back with a cover of the theme song from BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY, and I can only wonder if it was fueled by the fact that the series recently made its debut on Netflix. In fact, I mentioned it in last month's #StreamTeam column, and I have a feeling that the gents from PSYCHOSTICK have been doing a little binge-watching. Crank this one up...
Well, this is a reminder out of nowhere. The folks at READING RAINBOW have been in touch a few times over the past few years, and every time I hear from them, I automatically end up getting the theme song to the iconic LeVar Burton family literature series stuck in my head. So why did it get stuck in my head this morning? No, it wasn't communique from READING RAINBOW at all, but an email from comedy metal band, PSYCHOSTICK. The band has just released a cover version of that earworm-inducing theme song, and you can hear it right here on THE ROCK FATHER, below.
They're the self-proclaimed "originators of humorcore," and now PSYCHOSTICK is serving up a tasty FREE ALBUM DOWNLOAD through Thanksgiving. Their holiday record, THE FLESH EATING ROLLERSKATE HOLIDAY JOYRIDE can be downloaded in it's entirety from this location. The free offering comes in celebration of their forthoming Christmas Tour, which kicks off in Peoria, Illinois on the 20th. Check out the full run of dates below!
