    Seriously someone must have a workable idea?

    At birth, every newborn child would have a small electronic device fitted consisting of a microphone and an electrode, the latter inserted into the brain.

    Whenever it detects this song being played it would deliver a small electric current through the skull and into the amygdala, which would disrupt formation of new memories.

    So we would hear it but not remember it.

    Eventually it would be forgotten, and we would no longer need the implant.

    Off course I remember them when they were skinheads.

    They were quite good. I think Dave the guitarist was a bit dodgy with the young ladeez though. It was ok in the 70s I believe.

    Slade provide the the only Christmas song I look forward to. Excellent song.

    Given that Quiet Riot would just extend their Slade back catalogue, you will never win…..

    I reckon if we could Nuke “It’s Chhhhhhhrrrrrriiiiissssmassss” from orbit, or whatever it’s called, we could all live in harmony with the rest of their back catolog.

    Still, I bet Nobby is waiting at the door for the postman every January.

    It’s nearly Xmas, there’s no escaping them.

    Every December I play a game with myself, called the Avoid Slade Xmas Game. The rules of the Avoid Slade Xmas Game are very simple: if you hear That Bloody Slade Song between the dates of Dec 1st and Dec 24th, you lose. Usually I lose on December 1st, but I actually won it last year for the first time in my life.

    By a combination of not going into any shops or town centres or shopping malls or service stations if at all possible, not listening to the radio, avoiding human contact as much as I could, wearing headphones all the time, and a lot of dumb luck I didn’t hear That Bloody Slade Song once in the whole of advent. As a pleasant bonus I also didn’t catch any colds, and the urge to wipe out the whole of humanity for its own good was vastly reduced – I can heartily recommend playing the Avoid Slade Xmas Game as a viable method for surviving the festive period if you’re a hopeless, miserable Scrooge, like I am.

    Humbug.

    Could be worse – Cliff’s Mistletoe and Wine (or any of his catalogue) – more worthy of removal I reckon

    Bonus is their Christmas song will be on the same CD as everyone else’s shitty Christmas songs so they’ll have to burn them all.

    Hammer, nail, perfect interface.

    It’s like worrying about whether to eat a slightly out of date digestive biscuit at teatime when you ate partially defrosted 1999 vintage raw chicken for lunch.

    Oh yeah, there are definitely much worse xmas songs, I personally hold a particularly virulent loathing for that horrible Macca dirge Wonderful Xmastime or whatever it’s called. It’s much worse, definitely.

    But the Slade number is so inescapable, so pervasive, and so irritatingly bloody cheerful. I’ve heard it so many, many times now that it makes me want to kill someone. It has to be the ultimate, definitive, most crashingly obvious dreadful xmas pop song out there. If you were going to put together Now That’s What I Call **** Awful Xmas Music, Slade would have to be the first track on there, wouldn’t it?

    To extend your analogy, one slightly out of date biscuit wouldn’t be a big deal, no, but That Slade Song is like the entire nation being force-fed stale biscuits by every bloody supermarket manager in the UK for a whole month. Ugh.

    Undoubtedly but it would be with good humour that I listened to it. Mariah, Maca, Cliff, David Bowie + Bing Crosby, Wham would be the things that caused me to attack the album with an angle grinder flame thrower.

    Edit: as an aside I can’t believe we’re on Christmas content already. I saw somewhere the other day:

    There are 12 days of Christmas – none of them are in November.

    I’m quite happy to put up with Slade being ubiquitous every Chrimble, because the more it gets played, the less airtime available for East 17, Boyzone, Westlife, Maria Bloody Carey, Cliff Bleedin’ Richards, Paul Effin’ McCartney…
    And they recorded this, for which I will also forgive Merry Christmas Everybody:
