Everclear is one of my favorite bands of all-time. Whenever they would leave their beloved west coast and head east, I had to get to tickets and go see them.

You've heard and probably remember Everclear's hit songs like "Santa Monica", "Father of Mine" and "Wonderful" but they have a Christmas themed song you probably never heard, called "I Will be Hating You for Christmas."

The song appeared as a hidden track on the 1997 album "So much for the Afterglow." It's piggybacked on the final track (Like a California King). These are the lyrics:

Thanks for the Christmas card
I don't want to hear about your new job now
I don't want to hear about your new boyfriend
I don't want to hear about it all working out for you,
No, I don't want to hear it now
I don't want to hear about your swinging new place,
I don't want to hear how everyone thinks it's great
I just want to sit in our apartment and hate you,
Yes, I will be hating you for Christmas
You can have the Christmas tree
Remember when we bought it at the store down the street?
Remember when I found that cheesy color wheel?
I don't want to think about the lights on your white skin
No, I don't want to think about it.
I don't want to think about last year at your dad's
You said it was the best sex that we both ever had
I don't want to think about my face in your soft hair
I will be hating you for Christmas
I will be hating you for Christmas
I will be hating you for Christmas
I will be hating you for Christmas
Yeah, I will be hating you for Christmas
I will be hating you for Christmas
I will be hating you for Christmas
I will be hating you for Christmas
I must be losing my mind
There's gotta be a better way to deal with the pain
There's gotta be a better way to deal with the hate
Wish that I could find some way to make you go away
Wish that I could have a drink and make you think
Wish that I could have myself a drink and make you fade
Wish that I could have a drink and make you go away
Yeah, make you go away
Wish that I could make you go away
I will be hating you for Christmas
Yeah, I will be hating you for Christmas
I will be hating you for Christmas
I will be hating you for Christmas
I will be hating you for Christmas
I will be hating you for Christmas
I will be hating you for Christmas
I will be hating you for Christmas
I will be hating you for Christmas
Thanks for the Christmas card

Can you find a angrier song, in terms of lyrics? The short answer is yes, I'm certain there is a metal band out there that had some atrocious and violent ideas to share about Christmas that can top this. However, Everclear's take on Christmas is more angry because it's really good.

The production is clean, it's hooky and if marketed correctly, this tune could have been a hit. The love and attention that went into this track make it the angriest. They wanted the message to ring loud and clear. That message is simple, during the loveliest, most thoughtful time of year, I'll use my energy to hate you. LOL.

P.S. I got to meet Art Alexakis (Everclear's lead man) back in 2014 and the photo is lost and I'm really sad about that. He's always been one of my favorite musicians and songwriters.

Behind the Walls of CT's Abandoned Norwich State Hospital

In this day and age, mental health treatment is serious business and in most cases, patients are treated with care and respect. This was not always the case in the U.S. and hospitals dedicated to the "mentally ill" became prisons that regularly conducted torture. America is now littered with shuttered hospitals decaying from the inside and the outside. Many believe these places still contain the dark energy left behind by the gruesome acts of the past. One of these places in Norwich State Hospital. 

12 Signs You're a True American 'Tough Guy'

Our culture morphs and those shifts mean certain types of behavior have an expiration date. What you once thought was "cool" or "tough" may make you look like a straight up D-bag now. The problem is, when our culture pivots, not everyone gets the memo.

You could find yourself in a room with someone born in the 60's, another in the 80's, a man who was born in the 90's and another in the 2000's, they are all going to have different ideas about what makes them a man. 

What makes you a "tough guy" today? For starters, the term itself is a punch line, if someone calls you a "tough guy", they are picking on you. This list was supposed to be titled "Top Signs You're a Raging Douche" but my editor nixed that, so these are the "Top Signs You're a Real Tough Guy."
