I have always been a fan of celtic punk, but when I heard “I’m Shipping Up To Boston,” I gained respect for the Dropkick Murphys. I still like Flogging Molly more, but that’s because I’ve seen them play live more times. I did see the Dropkick Murphys once and it was an experience. It was at the Warped Tour a few years ago and they had a ton of celtic dancers on stage with them and it was one big party. I would like to see an actual show of theirs, since they only played 30 minutes at Warped Tour.
If you’re a fan of Flogging Molly, you will love the Dropkick Murphys. (Chances are if you like one, you’ve heard of the other.)
Here is the video for “I’m Shipping Up To Boston. If you watched the movie “The Departed,” this song was played prominently in the movie.
