After “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch“, find more from Get Back Val here.

Take one of the most beloved dark Christmastime classics and add a flare of glam, rock n roll riffs and a balanced recipe of “puppies, dancing, guitars, electric eyes”… And then blend in heaps of “neon hearts, beautiful Christmas lights, decor, and hilarious Holiday merriment”, and you’ll be starring down the misletoe at Get Back Val’s new cover of the 1966 Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel/Albert Hague quintessential holiday track, “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch”.
From the mind of LA producer Pete Hopkins, this modern take (with prerequisite retro pop-rock vibes) and its surreal DIY video are nothing, and we mean nothing like you’ve seen or heard before. A trippy surprise around every twinkle coupled with that cameo by the pup is priceless Xmas joy. In a Facebook post, Hopkins says, “Hope this makes your Holiday season a little brighter, bigger, weirder, awesome!”
It does all of that and more, check it out below, and share with friends and loved ones…
