If you’ve ever worked in retail, you know all too well of the pain that comes with spending eight to 10 hours of the day in a store or shop this time of year. We’re not talking about the flood of customers, or the frantic pleading of managers with revenue-based KPIs to sell everything in your store but doors. It’s the music. No matter how much you love the holidays or dig your gig, hearing the same 40 Christmas songs looped continuously for a month will make you want to strangle David Bowie and Bing Crosby with a work sock. This, we encourage you to end the cycle of musical madness by partaking in The Punk Rock Advent Calendar, our Cool Site of the Week.
Offering visitors one kickin’ holiday-themed punk tune a day for the 25 days leading up to Christmas, The Punk Rock Advent Calendar is a site with a mission: To save your sanity from the heaping helping of musical pap most retailers, radio stations and family members try to pass off as festive.
The 25 days of December leading up to Christmas day features a track from a different band that can also be download to your computer and rocked out to later--after all, what would an advent calendar be without a treat behind every door? Without a doubt, The Punk Rock Advent Calendar is an awesome way to ring in the holidays and make them feel like a fete worth celebrating.
Be sure to check back every Friday for another edition of Maximum PC’s Cool Site of the Week.
