Take a trippy, cinematic sleighride into the strange and sublime universe of alternative and underground Christmas music, featuring The Flaming Lips, Run-DMC, The Free Design, Low, Miles Davis & Bob Dorough, Clarence Carter, John Waters, Akim & The Teddy Vann Prod. Co., The Mighty Sparrow, A Girl Called Eddy, El Vez and many more.

With titles like, “Green Chri$tma$,” “Santa Claus Was a Black Man” or “Merry Christmas Someone” these funny, sad, satirical, and scathing songs explore the flipside of the Yuletide: racial inequality, religious freedom, nuclear war, family angst, conspicuous consumption, or just the yearning sadness of being alone at the happiest time of the year.

Jingle Bell Rocks! follows Christmas music junkie Mitchell Kezin as he hits the road to uncover the stories inside the grooves, Mitchell hangs with musicians, deejays, record execs, radio hosts, composers, critics and fellow collectors who share his passion! Featuring exclusive conversations with artists behind the music: from hiphop legend Joseph “Rev Run” Simmons of RUN DMC, to late 60s folk pop family The Free Design, from alt pop chanteuse Erin Moran of A Girl Called Eddy to “Schoolhouse Rock” creator & genuine hillbilly bebopper Bob Dorough, who wrote and sang the caustic “Blue Xmas (To Whom It May Concern)” with Miles Davis.
