Have a very vintage Christmas with Hall & Oates' performance of "Jingle Bell Rock"

Hall and Oates bring their unique style to this Holiday classic.

Hall & Oates, two of America's favorite pop-rock performers, have sold an estimated 40 million records. They are best known for their six No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100: "Rich Girl", "Kiss on My List", "Private Eyes", "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)", "Maneater", and "Out of Touch", as well as many other songs which charted in the Top 40 including the singles "You Make My Dreams", "She's Gone", "Say It Isn't So" and "Sara Smile". Billboard magazine named them the most successful duo of the rock era and on September 2, 2016, they received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. When asked about how their dynamic works, John Oates said, "'You play your song and I'll back you up, and I'll play my song and you back me up.' That's what we do."

The duo released a promotional only single called "Jingle Bell Rock" in the early 1980s that had each of them separately singing the lead vocals on either side of the 45. "Jingle Bell Rock" is an American popular Christmas song first released by Bobby Helms in 1957. This peppy little tune has been recreated by dozens of performers, but the rock duo has brought their own touch to the song. Hall & Oates have come back to the holiday standard with their album 'Home for Christmas' where they redid "Jingle Bell Rock."

Hall & Oates created a pretty killer music video, which you can watch below.
