YouTube comments are a special wonderland of commentary where the rules of grammar and punctuation and decorum and other forms of oppression don't apply. Everybody can just let loose and tell you how they really feel. So that's where I turned when I wanted to find out how a handful of random people around the globe felt about the Christmas rock opera juggernaut known as The Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Here's just a taste of what they had to say about the band's hit "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo [Timeless Version]": "This NEVER gets old ..."; "also when the song drops the base it sounds like halo music"; "why can't my work play this instead of the old crap"; "This. This is what awesome is. There is no other definition of awesome besides this"; "I LOVE THIS SONG I DO NOT KNOW WHY :D"; and something all of us need a reminder of once in a while, "Christmas doesn't have to be so freakin, cheesy. To all you metal fans out there! Raise your fists, bang your heads and rock the hell out of 2013 and into 2014!!!!!!!" There you have it folks, go see the TSO and rock the H-E-double-hockeysticks on into the new year!

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
