The Real Slim Santa, various artists (KROQ)￼￼
Kevin and Bean, morning jocks at KROQ, return￼ with another charity compilation for the 2000 holiday season. Fittingly, the album opens and closes with Eminem parodies, the title song at the front and "Stanley" at the back, the latter done by talk showhost Jimmy Kimmel. Parodies of Don King, William Shatner, Dennis Miller and Shaquille O'Neil join actual items from Stone Cold Steve Austin, Bobby Slayton and Bobcat Goldthwait. One of the better cuts is "Santa Claus: Behind the Magic," based on the VH1 "Behind" series; one of the more unnecessary is "The Night Before Christmas" as done by a Dennis Miller impersonator; apparently the perpetrator of this item is unaware that Miller and Dana Carvey did this exact same thing on "Saturday Night Live" a decade ago. Contributing original Christmas songs are Linkin Park with "My December," Andy Dick with the cute but blasphemous "Gassy Jesus," Weezer with "Christmas Song," MXPX with "Coming Home For Christmas" and Orgy with "Santa's Creepy Secret." U2's "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" appears here again, and Fenix TX does a sexed-up "Feliz Navidad," Save Ferris cover the Kinks' "Father Christmas," Eve 6 do "First Noel," Travis cover Joni Mitchell's "River," Fuel performs "We Three Kings," 3 Doors Down does an acoustic "Jingle Bells" and Blink 182 gets their audience to sing "Silent Night." Victoria Silvstedt's "Santa Baby" is mediocre, although it becomes a classic when she does it naked, right?￼ Click to Amazon, as new and used copies remain widely available.
