First off, MERRY CHRISTMAS!
“Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight)” was written by Joey Ramone and was part of the track listing on the Brain Drain album released in 1989. The last album to feature Dee Dee on bass before CJ would join in. The music video was filmed after Dee Dee’s departure with CJ performing in the clips.
“Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight)” was also included on the soundtrack to “Christmas With The Kranks” and Joey Ramone’s posthumous releases, “Christmas Spirit…In My House” and “…Ya Know?”
