Rise Against, alongside their blistering punk rock, are probably best known for their advocacy of charity organisations including the likes of Amnesty International, the It Gets Better Project and PETA.

What they’re far less known for is their festive cover of Making Christmas from Tim Burton’s infamous Christmas classic The Nightmare Before Christmas. The song comes from the 2008 album Nightmare Revisited where a number of big names from the world of rock including Amy Lee, Korn and Marilyn Manson joined forces to cover the songs from Danny Elfman’s critically acclaimed soundtrack.

It’s a staple television classic every year and now you can have a punk rock version to wind down to over the holidays, if you feel like your Yuletide spirit is short a Mohawk or two.
