Going Out In Style

What the hell is Celtic punk? Well listen to any Dropkick Murphys song and you'll know. Irish music -- bagpipes and flutes, mixed in with punk rock. The first time I heard of them was in Martin Scorsese's The Departed back in '06, which played their song Shipping Up To Boston. Back then I hadn't heard punk music done that way before.

Here on Going Out In Style, expect high-energy catchy tunes; and if you don't have the sudden urge to pump your fists into the air and stomp your foot down hard, you're probably not human! This album is also perfect for chugging beer to. The band always sings about and celebrate the working class people, the underdogs, the downtrodden. Here they dedicate these new batch of songs to a decorated war hero. The music is ferocious and relentless, calling along for you to live life to the fullest. Oh yeah and the Boss also helps sing some lines to the traditional Peg O' My Heart.
