Our first Christmas single, released in November 2015. Our goal was to take a song from our musical background that had little or nothing to do with Christmas, and turn it into a Christmas song. The result is this unique take on a Ramones fan favorite. The making of this single sparked a Christmas tradition to record a new cover song every year, reworking the song from the bottom up in hopes of creating something new and fresh from classic material.

Originally recorded by The Ramones
Written by Joey Ramone


She went away for the holidays
Said she was going to LA
She never got there
She never got there
She never got there they say

The KKK took my baby away
They took her from me
Away from me

I don't know where my baby could be
They took her from me
Away from me

So ring me, ring me up the FBI
Find out if my baby's alive
Ring me, ring me up the President
Find out where my baby went


released November 24, 2015
