Dropkick Murphys

Dropkick Murphys are an American ska-punk band formed in 1996 in Massachusetts.

Key members include founder member, Ken Casey - bass, plus Al Barr - lead vocals and Matt Kelly - drums and bodhran.

They are famed for their boisterous sets, not least St Patrick's Day-type celebrations (due in part to their fierce Irish loyalty to their roots).

They released their debut album, "Do or Die" in 1998, followed by: "The Gang's All Here" (1999), "Sing Loud, Sing Proud!" (2001), "Blackout" (2003), "The Warrior's Code" (2005), "The Meanest of Times" (2007), "Going Out in Style" (2011), "Signed and Sealed in Blood" (2013), "11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory" (2017), "Turn Up That Dial" (2021), "This Machine Still Kills Fascists" (2022), plus 2023's: "Okemah Rising".
