The label thought it was too violent, so he redid it. It was later released as a bonus on the AP single.

Has anyone ever heard this song on a Christmas station? The more I think about it, that might have been the first time I ever heard it.

Is the line "he got Dancer and Prancer with an old German Luger" supposed to imply that Santa is a Nazi? Luger pistols are indeed old and were most notably used during the first and second World Wars by the Germans.
not to mention the toilets at Madonna Inn

I would certainly hope not. I think Al just wanted to rhyme it with "Freddy Kruger" to drive home the song's bloody massacre themes.

I believe a lot of old Lugers also came home with GI's as war souvenirs. So there's plenty of room for debate about the provenance of that gun.

I may be late to the game, but I just realized how similar this song is to Soul Asylum's "Black Gold"

After all, it is supposed to be a style parody of them, isn't it??

Intro is definitely Mama I'm Coming Home but I assumed the rest of the song was all Al.
What a racket they're makin', Jack, they keep me up at night playin' their electric guitars!!

This is my favorite Christmas song. Al sure knows how to twist a subject around!
