PUP put out one of the best albums of the year with Morbid Stuff, and the band recently teamed up with the Canadian broadcaster CBC to perform a special Christmas version of the album’s lead single “Kids.” They were dressed in holiday attire and surrounded by a very cute crew of puppets.
The band changed lyrics about their hollow and vapid life and lack of ambition to the more thematically appropriate: “Just like the kids, I’ve been navigating my way through the winter reality of this Christmas season/ Which, at this point in my bright and merry life, has jingled the jingle bells that I’ve got left/ And I’ve embraced the festivities with friends and family and holiday cheer.” Impressive.
Extremely wholesome content! Do the one about killing your bandmates next.
