Most people know the Dropkick Murphys from their song “Shipping Up to Boston” which was featured in the movie The Departed. See here:
Although I had heard of this band back in the late 90s, I didn’t become a fan until I heard them play the BC fight song “For Boston”. Here are the studio and live versions of the song…I enjoy this live one in particular because it comes from a concert at Agganis Arena, where BU plays their home hockey games.
After picking up their Sing Loud, Sing Proud! CD, I really enjoyed their combination of Celtic-Punk originals and covers of traditional songs like Fields of Athenry, Black Velvet Band, The Wild Rover, and The Rocky Road To Dublin.
