GET INTO THE HOLIDAY SEASON WITH AXS TV AS THE NETWORK PRESENTS THE PREMIERE OF THE HOLIDAY MUSIC DOC ‘JINGLE BELL ROCKS!’ ON DEC. 24 AT 9pE
The Eclectic Look at Alternative Christmas Music Features Over Two Dozen Original Songs and Exclusive Interviews with The Flaming Lips, Run DMC, John Waters, and More
LOS ANGELES – December 21, 2015 – Rock around the Christmas tree with AXS TV this Christmas Eve, as the network presents the premiere of the hit documentary JINGLE BELL ROCKS! on Thursday, December 24, at 9pE. The quirky feature gives viewers an exclusive backstage pass into the weird and wonderful world of alternative Christmas music—an underground universe that turns the beloved Christmas music genre on its head, forgoing standard themes of peace on earth and goodwill to men in favor of more unconventional topics such as racial inequality, religious freedom, and nuclear war, among others.
Serving as guides on this musical tour is an eclectic list of stars from across the entertainment spectrum, including indie rock icons The Flaming Lips, hip-hop pioneers Run DMC, and fan-favorite cult filmmaker John Waters, and many more, as they give insight into the social history and pop culture impact behind a wide variety of rare Christmas songs that many people have never heard before. Powered by a soundtrack boasting over two dozen songs with titles like “Close Your Mouth (It’s Christmas),” “Santa Claus Was A Black Man,” and “Merry Christmas Someone,” this inventive and one-of-a-kind rock doc is the perfect way to celebrate the season.
