Psychostick have released a video for their Christmas-themed version of System Of A Down’s B.Y.O.B.
The self-styled ‘humour-core’ band have named their song N.O.E.L and reworked the lyrics to poke fun at the consumerist nature of the Christmas season.
N.O.E.L includes lyrics like “manufactured lies from the greeting card” and “everybody’s dropping money on people they don’t like.”
Psychostick say: “Metal up your holidays with this cheerful ballad of seasonal consumerism. Funny Christmas song for your great aunt.”

Drummer John Dolmayan said: “We’ve been working on a new album for the last six months and there’s about 15 songs that I think are album-worthy.
“We don’t know what’s happening in terms of release, it’s still not 100% as far as plans go.
“I want everyone on board and feeling good about it, that’s what we’re trying to accomplish right now. There’s a tremendous amount of pressure on us, though, because it’s been 11 years – at least 12 by the time it comes out.”
The band have a string of tour dates lined up for 2017, including a headline appearance at Download festival.
