Oi to the punks! And Oi to you! This week’s episode of Popular Music: The Podcast has Analise and Steven traveling back to the magical year of 1997 to celebrate No Doubt’s insanely fun cover of The Vandals’, “Oi To The World.” In this episode, your hosts talk about how punk/ska bands help to create space for less overtly “happy” Christmas tunes as well as how this song musically takes a Christmas traditional and makes it delightfully raucous.
No guilt. Only pleasure. Popular Music is a pop music podcast hosted by Steven Ray Morris and Analise Nelson. New episodes every Monday.
