Fear - Fuck Christmas


On this date in 1982, Fear released their second single, "Fuck Christmas". It was backed by "(Bleep Christmas)". Neither track appeared on an album though the A side was added to their debut album, The Record, when it was re-released on CD. The Los Angeles hardcore punk band once appeared on Saturday Night Live, specifically because of the close friendship between John Belushi and Fear's guitarist Derf Scratch. They were, predictably, banned from performing on the show again. Their last release was in 2000.
