Joan Jett, Blackhearts & Friends: Silent Night (2008)

To kick things off, I thought I would share what is possibly my very favourite track in my collection. Every time I come across a track to add to my library that is totally obscure or fucked up I get a little bit of a thrill. You can imagine how I felt when I came across this one: a bunch of artists from Joan Jett's Blackheart label covering Silent Night, interspersed with snippets from Back Obama's victory speech, and outtakes from John McCain's concession speech. (This is probably even more obtuse when you consider I'm Australian.)

It doesn't make any sense, and I love it.
