The first of our bands to cover the hymn "O Holy Night," Florida natives Go Radio tear into the piece with an anthemic, My Chemical Romance-like gusto. Originally released just last month on Fearless Records' holiday compilation 'Tis the Season to Be Fearless, the amped-up carol features slashing guitars, melodic piano, martial drums and angelic backing vocals that add up to an emo-tinged Christmas slammer. It may not be the way Adolphe Adam pictured his compostion over 150 years ago, but it's suitably epic for the occasion.
