    The Dropkick Murphys started out as an underground punk rock band, but they have managed to creep into the mainstream by having their music played in feature films. They have a ton of great songs.

    These two are my favorites, from the first singer.

    Both great songs, but I think Al Barr was a better fit for DKM than Mike McColgan.

    Sidenote, when I saw Flogging Molly on New Years weekend they announced a late summer/early fall US tour with Dropkick Murphy's . I can't wait for the dates to be released!

    I have seen DKM play live like 4 or 5 times (the first time in 2004 and the last time in 2013), so I don't really go to their shows anymore. But, one of my top five shows of all time was DKM in the summer of 2009 for their Meanest of Times tour. Meanest of Times is my favorite DKM album.

    There's several of Mike's songs that I truly love. What do you think of his current band?

    That is the first time I have ever heard it. It's alright but doesn't hold a candle to DKM.

    Shipping Up to Boston is alright....but I couldn't ever get in to these guys, Flogging Molly too. Always thought it seemed a bit cheesy...

    The Dirty Glass or Bastards on Parade.

    I love DKM.

    Fairmont Hill is great too.

    The Dirty Glass is definitely one of their better songs.

    Great bar/drinking song. And thanks for posting the video, I'm fairly lazy when posting from my phone.

    I saw them with Rancid on the Boston to Berkley tour

    Flew out to Vancouver to see them, slept for a few hours, drove down to Seattle to see the tour again the next night.

    I'm more of a Rancid fan but DKM are pretty fucking badass.

    Never Alone. Sadly, the one time I saw these guys live (great concert) they neglected to play it.
