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.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
