Swedish garage rockers the Hives recently teamed up with pop icon Cyndi Lauper to celebrate the holidays with “A Christmas Duel,” a blazing number that's much more fierce and raw than your typical Christmas carol.

It may seem an unlikely combination of artists, but Lauper's strong, take-no-guff voice turns out to be a perfect match for the Hives' rough and tumble rock power.
