XmasTestGuitarImageFinal2The maiden voyage of the XmasTest™ – all lit up, decked out and hollied – plumbs the depths of your rock-n-roll Christmas spirit (or lack thereof) as you are challenged to identify classic holiday numbers and the A-list artists performing them.

Inside the XmasTest™ you will find some of rock music’s most beloved Christmas songs, but correctly identifying them may be harder than you think.

So spark up the yule log, raise a big tumbler of egg nog – and see if you can pass the first installment of the Rudolph-tested, Santa-approved XmasTest™.
