We’ll celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day with punk rockers the Dropkick Murphys. They’re in the house.
For Celtic punk rock workingman’s Irish pride, it doesn’t get better than the Dropkick Murphys.
The joyful, hard-hitting band out of Boston took the punk drive of the Pogues and turned it into rollicking Irish-American soul. Now, they’re touring the world, Celtic punk all the way.
Bruce Springsteen’s on their new album, plus a whole lot of Irish love. And on this St. Patrick’s Day, they’re live in the studio with us.
This hour On Point: the Dropkick Murphys.
