I generally hate the holidays, but this album may have me singing a different tune this year. Animated Adult Swim
(on Cartoon Network) stars Frylock, Master Shake and Meatwad—collectively known as Aqua Teen Hunger Force
—release their first ever holiday album, Have Yourself a Meaty Little Christmas
The album features the anti-heroic trio, joined by their landlord Carl singing classics such as "Silent Night" and
"Feliz Navidad," but busting out a few original beats as well with the likes of "Hark! The Herald Angel Raps" and one that I'm sure will be closest to my heart, “I Sure Hope I Don’t Have to Beat Your A$$ (This Christmas).”
Aqua Teen Hunger Force co-creator Dave Willis is the brain behind the album, which features a guest appearance by songstress Neko Case—who voiced a sadistic siren in the episode "Sirens," which also starred ex-Philadelphia Phillie John Kruk—singing with the little wad of meat on "Santa Left a Booger In My Stocking."
The CD and a digital download will be available from Williams Street Records on Tuesday, Nov. 3.
