Travis Barker Thought It Was A Good Idea To Remake "Jingle Bells" With Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian And It's Even Worse Than You Can Imagine. BONUS - New Music Friday

TMZ - Kris Jenner is no threat to Mariah Carey for sure, but she did a respectable job with her rendition of "Jingle Bells," with an assist from her future son-in-law.

KJ posted her version of the Xmas staple, as Travis Barker, who produced the tune on "Kravis Records," kept the beat on his drum set. Not bad to have Blink-182 as your backup.

Kourtney Kardashian contributed by playing the song's title.

As for the art on the album cover ... well, it's a back-in-the-day photo, and a good one at that.

Regrettably, this isn't Kris Jenner's first foray into singing. Back in 1985, before the ink on the deal with the devil had dried, she recorded "I Like My Friends" to the tune of Randy Newman's "I Love L.A." - complete with O.J. Simpson cameo and all.

My beef isn't with the Kardashian/Jenner's in this. It's with Travis Barker.

Listen, man. I totally understand the power of the P-U-S-S-Y. 

Wars have started over it. The world's most powerful men are brought to their knees by it. I get it.

But keep that shit in house. 

You didn't need to unleash this kind of auditory evil on the rest of the world. On Christmas Eve no less!

How the mighty have fallen.
