A single from Biffy Clyro's, 2002 debut album, Blackened Sky, this became the band's first chart entry when it peaked at #61 on the UK singles chart.
An early version of the song, with different vocals and guitars, appeared on Biffy Clyro's debut 2000 EP, thekidswhopoptodaywillrocktomorrow.
The song was written at an important time in frontman Simon Neil's life. It's tale of heartbreak is about hurt, but also of moving on and what comes next. "It was about trying to become a man," explained Neil in Kerrang! magazine. "Leaving home, deciding to take a chance on the band and putting everything into that."
"White "Christmas" was so popular that Bing had to re-record the song five years after the original 1942 recording because the original masters had been worn out from all the pressings. This is the version that became a holiday tradition.
