Spinal Tap – Christmas with the Devil & interview – The Arsenio Hall Show – 1992

A nostalgic blast of yuletide metal from this 1992 episode of The Arsenio Hall Show. Can't say I watched this on its original airing, but I've always considered This Is Spinal Tap (1984) a comedy classic and film favorite. Still have not watched the dvd version, which I'm told has tons of extra scenes.

The elves are dressed in leather
And the angels are in chains
(Christmas with the Devil)
The sugar plums are rancid
And the stockings are in flames
(Christmas with the Devil)
There's a demon in my belly
And a gremlin in my brain
There's someone up the chimney hole
And Satan is his name
The rats ate all the presents
And the reindeer ran away
(Christmas with the Devil)
There'll be no Father Christmas
'Cause it's Evils holiday
(Christmas with the Devil)
No bells in Hell
No snow below-
Silent Night, Violent Night
So come all ye unfaithful
Don't be left out in the cold
You don't need no invitation, no...
Your ticket is your soul

plus this bonus

Spinal Tap on the Joe Franklin Show


  1. I don't remember ever watching this, so it's cool to get a chance to see it. I always liked Spinal Tap.

  2. I never watched Arsenio either, so I know I missed this first time around. Thanks to YouTube, now we can both turn it up to 11 and listen to the mighty Spinal Tap and their comedic/metal Christmas music.
