PUP Perform Christmas Version Of Kids On Children’s TV
Christmas isn’t just about turkey, stockings and reindeer, it’s also about music! But if you’re tired of singing the same old carols or crooning along to White Christmas, let Canadian punks PUP add some much-needed energy to your jolly holiday playlist. Or sleighlist, if you will.
Appearing on TV alongside Studio K’s Pupperinos, the Toronto four-piece spread the festive spirit with a Christmassy version of their track Kids.

Taken from this year’s Morbid Stuff album, Kids isn’t the most cheerful song on the planet, but vocalist Stefan Babcock has given them a holiday makeover so they’re suitable for pre-schoolers.
‘I’ve been navigating my way through the mind-numbing reality of a godless existence,’ has been changed to ‘I’ve been navigating my way through the wintery reality of this Christmas season,’ and ‘Which, at this point in my hollow and vapid life, has erased what little ambition I’ve got left,’ has been updated to ‘Which, at this point in my bright and merry life, has jingled the jingle bells that I’ve got left.’
He goes on to sing about spending Christmas with you, and wishing he’d left out cookies for Santa.
