Legal controversy[edit]

In May 2000, several record labels, including Warner Music Group, sued the album's distributor, Party on Parody Productions, alleging that the album infringed on the copyright of the Christmas songs it spoofs. In December, the case was settled, the album was pulled from shelves, and all remaining unsold copies of the album were destroyed.[2]
