The Offspring is getting into the Christmas spirit with this new cover

Tis the season ... for a break from the election tension, and The Offspring are providing it for you. The band has officially started the transition to focusing on the holidays with their cover of the Darlene Love classic, "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)."

Sensing a need for an uplifting break from the news cycle, singer Dexter Holland commented, "It just seemed like the world could use a nice holiday song right now. We've always been huge fans of Darlene Love, so when the idea came up to do a Christmas song, we jumped at the chance to record that one … and tried not to wreck it!"
