Listen to An, Erm, Alternative Christmas Playlist from Gorillaz' Murdoc

Including such smashes as "Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis" by Tom Waits, it's guaranteed to be a festive hit.

Music is an intrinsic part of Christmas – it is a unifying force throughout the rest of the year anyway, so when we're all feeling warm and fuzzy in December there's nothing that will bond you to someone more tightly than linking arms, screaming your lungs off and accidentally chucking beer about in your hometown boozer when "Fairytale of New York" comes on at 11:32pm on Christmas Eve.

And so it is in this spirit, I'm sure, that Noisey's close personal friend Murdoc Niccals of Gorillaz fame has curated his very own Christmas playlist (entitled "Murdoc's Dirty Santa Party Playlist"), shared last night via the band's Instagram. Featuring well loved Christmas classics such as AC/DC's "Mistress for Christmas" and "Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis" by Tom Waits, it is bound to delight the whole family and become a yearly mainstay in your home. God bless us, every one.
