Hear William Shatner, Iggy Pop Duet (Yes, Really) on "Silent Night"

File this under "fever dreams David Bowie may have had at some point", but the Godfather of punk Iggy Pop has done a duet with William Shatner, on a Christmas album.

Hear William Shatner, Iggy Pop Duet (Yes, Really) on "Silent Night"

Shatner is no stranger to interesting collaborations on his albums, but this one is just strange enough to be perfect.  This'll be his first Christmas release, and it's titled "Shatner Claus- The Christmas Album".

We can't decide if we love this duet more or the idea of Henry Rollins doing "Jingle Bells".

Needless to say, this one sounds like a classic in the making.
