Rudolph the Black Sabbath Reindeer
to the tune of "Iron Man"

See his shiny nose
You would even say it glows
Reindeer call him names
Won't let him play no reindeer games.

[Chorus] Nobody wants him
He can't ride on their sleds
Nobody likes him
So Rudolph plots his revenge.

Santa wouldn't believe
Until that foggy Christmas Eve
"With your nose so bright,
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

Nobody liked him
They just turned away
Screams of vengeance
As he crashes the sleigh.

Rudolph's nose so red
Fills his victims full of dread
Christmas catastrophe
He'll go down in history.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
