Legendary Big Star frontman Alex Chilton was beating around the bush a bit on 'Jesus Christ' (from his 1975 solo effort Bach's Bottom), but this is a full-on Christmas classic for everyone who love their alternative rock ballads gritty.

Hiss Golden Messenger recorded a cover version of this in 2011. Listen to it now, while you're still excited about their fantastic Lateness of Dancers album that came out just a couple of months ago.
