It’s Saint Patrick’s Day so to celebrate, our song selection to celebrate comes from America’s foremost Irish rock band, the Dropkick Murphys. Hailing from Quincy, Massachusetts, Dropkick Murphys has been blessing our ears with their music for over two decades. With their distinct Irish sound, the band has generated a cult following over the years, but one of their hits sticks out from the rest.
“I’m Shipping Up to Boston” released in 2006 off the band’s Warrior’s Code album. The song received a major boost in popularity when it was featured on the soundtrack of the Academy Award winning film The Departed, which released the same year.
So on this Saint Patrick’s Day, sit back and enjoy a pint of Guinness while jamming out to the quintessential Irish-American rock anthem courtesy the Dropkick Murphys.
Erin go Bragh!
