Been listening to them a lot since they were announced and they are going to be an awesome drunken sing along band in the evening!

I am obviously in a minority of one here. I am playing a silly game (and educating my kids at tge same time...) by only having music from bands announced to play on my phone. I get into car, plug in the phone and hit shuffle.
Then take great pleasure in telling kids I will be seeing this band in the summer, they can away and "enjoy" ed sheerin without me...
But then the dropdead murphys come on and my glee drops.
Absolute drivvle. Crappy faux celtic punk, deliberately stupid lyrics and god awful grunty vocals.

I now have to change the rules of my own game, and delete this nonsense. ( sure, it will free up space for the next announcement). They are the only band I am skipping when a track comes on, and a band I will defo be skipping in the summer.

Gads, I am even happy to watch carnifex instead....

I like the Dropkick Murphys, but at the same time I would love to see their little faces crumple in despair if someone from Ireland told them that they were 'faux Celtic'. They clearly identify as Irish so strongly that if someone who was - you know - actually from there told them that the sounded like a bunch of imposters, I reckon it would destroy them. Do you have to skip them altogether? Can't you at least stand at the back and shout "You're not Irish. You're American."?

Ironically most bands I know who identify so strongly as being Irish are Irish American bands; it's like they are either over-compensating or Irish bands from Ireland don't feel the need to overdo it. The only exception to this rule that I can think of would be Thin Lizzy but then again Phil Lynott grew up in England and the band was mostly British (ironically).

House of Pain
Flogging Molly
Dropkick Murphy's
Real McKenzies
The Rumjacks

Just a few bands who claim to be Irish but are not actually from Ireland :P

Real McKenzies, though similar style in Celtic punk, identify as Scottish do they not? Plus to be fair, Dave from Flogging Molly grew up in Ireland, so is pretty legitimately Irish :P

I'm pretty sure they had an interview with some fans one time and someone said something like that. Their reply was "We can point out Ireland on a map. So fuck you." It was kinda bizarre.

Did the interviewer have a map to hand to test this claim out? I wouldn't be suprised if the finger ended up on the Isle of Wight, or Denmark.

I like to think so, but I read it in a magazine so if they did end up pointing at Russia or somewhere it saved them their blushes.

Everyone will be Russian away from us if we keep making these puns. But anyway, I like that Dropkick Murphys do the Irish-American thing, it's a good way of dublin their fanbase.

A lot of Americans think they are Irish or part Irish anyway not sure why really as it really isn't anything like the way they portrait the country to be :roll:

I tend to agree about the whole "Irish-American" thing, though I would say that, as a Boston band, they are about as "Irish" as they can get without actually being from there.

Anywho, they are a crackingly fun festival band. Drunken sing alongs, what's not to love?
Stoppin and stayin, I would if I could
