The internet is telling us that Dum Dum Girls and Crocodiles recorded this holiday jingle in an all-night marathon session. We tried that in high school once, and all that came out was a bunch of distorted spoken word, some dude banging a spoon on a pan, too many turkey pot pies and a recorder solo. Because they are "actual musicians" who "have previous experience" with this kind of thing, Dee Dee and the Crocs fare far better, making a jangly, fuzzy Christmas jam that culminates into a wall of decidedly non yuletide-like feedback skronk that includes no spoken word. We're into it.
