Christmas Is Here

Album: Single Release Only (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Christmas came early for Buckcherry fans in 2010 when the band released this holiday song as a free download at the end of November. The group said in a statement: "We have been wanting to write an original Christmas song for some time and never had opportunity until now. 'Christmas Is Here' got started with a simple melody in the spirit of traditional Christmas songs, then Josh (Todd, vocals) took the melody to Keith (Nelson, guitar) who came up with the music and it came together very quickly, with all 5 of us jamming up at the Bastard Ranch where All Night Long was made. Like everything Buckcherry, we hope it puts a smile on your face. Merry Christmas."
