Musical Advent Calendar: December 12

Today’s song is from 1975, and it’s from everyone’s favorite under-appreciated rock band, Big Star.

This is “Jesus Christ,” from their brilliant Third/Sister Lovers album.

I couldn’t embed the video of the studio version (you can view it here on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-pZnbkKiGI ), but here’s a live version from 2010 with Mike Mills and Ken Stringfellow of REM on vocals.
