Modern Rock Christmas: Run-DMC “Christmas in Hollis”

Die Hard

As we all know, Die Hard is one of the best Christmas movies ever made.  And as such, it features some perennial Holiday music favorites as well.  Of course, it closes with the timeless “Let It Snow,” sung by Vaughn Monroe, but this time we’re featuring limo driver Argyle’s favorite selection on the soundtrack, Run DMC’s “Christmas In Hollis.”  

I don’t think I ever actually saw this video back in 1987 but watching it now makes me long for the days when videos actually acted out the lyrics of the song.  “We better point to the Christmas tree when he says ‘Christmas tree.’”

Welcome to the party, pal.
