August Burns Red Just Turned The ‘Home Alone’ Theme Into A Punk Christmas Anthem

US metalcore outfit and bringers of Christmas cheer, August Burns Red, have shared their punked-up take on the classic Home Alone theme song, and it’s full of ’90s kid feels.

August Burns Red’s epic version of the Home Alone theme, which can be streamed in full below, is packed with pummeling drumming, sleigh bells, chugging guitars and some damn impressive lead guitar lines.
