The Tradition Of Terrible Christmas Music Continues: Cherie Currie And Lita Ford

ghosts of christmas past

Well if you thought that the Rocket Summer Christmas tune was a nightmare you aint heard nothing yet.  Two old ladies who are still cashing in on being Runaways have teamed up for the first time since 1977 with a tune that made me hawk up vegan egg nog.

A dated and horridly produced tune titled “Rock This Christmas Down”.  Who the hell wrote this slab of crap?  I would rather consume an entire fruit cake than subject myself to this one more time.  The nostalgia cannot make up for the absolute horror of the song.  The lame conversation is so scripted its embarrassing.  Ladies- enough, go botox or something.

“I thought the world could use a new Christmas song. The song was written by Mitch Perry, my guitarist, and Michael Dan Ehmig, my lyricist, along with Marty O’Brien on bass and Rodger Carter on drums. We so rocked it! What I didn’t know is that I’d be singing it as a duet with my long lost sister, Cherie Currie. I am blessed to have her back in my life, and what an appropriate time and song to rehash an old friendship — Christmas! Cherie hopped a plane from Chicago to L.A., and drove straight to the studio and threw down her vocal track on this rocking song. Needless to say, it was magic and history in the making. We were left with such a smoking track for everyone to hear, every Christmas, every year! Let’s ‘Rock This Christmas Down’!”

Bitch, please.  Who are we kidding here?  Its a cheaply thrown together grasp at royalties.  Its a Christmas gag gift.

Currie gushed,  “I have dreamed, literally, of seeing Lita again for over three decades. Even after all that time I still thought of her often. The Runaways was something that was always left unfinished to me. Especially when it came to Lita, but I only knew her as a child. What floored me more than the unbelievable gift of working with her again was the woman she had become. She is the bravest, kindest, strongest, most loving human being I have met. Lita asking me to be a part of this amazing song and a part of her astonishing life has filled that void, that hole I had in my heart that maybe we both shared. It is now filled with love, support and admiration for a dear and wonderful friend whom I am so proud to say is Lita Ford. “Rock This Christmas Down” has the flare of our Runaways legacy but its pure Lita. It rocks like only she can. We took a dim, negative and unfinished past and turned it into a positive future. It doesn’t get any better then that. I know this will be the best Christmas I have had in decades. Thank you sister!”

Both of you fuck off already… horrible and a disgrace to your legacy.
