most their stuff sucks.."do or die" is a classic album...i use to be really good friends with them back in the 90s..the good ol punk days..GV and them go waayyyyy back...was anyone else at their first LA show? showcase theatre in '97 i believe opening up for DI...they blew me away then
As the band kicked into T.N.T. by AC/DC some moron started seig heiling (the nazi salute) in time to the beat.
Ken Casey noticed this and ran right over to the guy, smashed him in the face, took off his bass and hit him with that and then jumped on him and all out chaos ensued. We could only assume from our vantage point that said nazi got his ass kicked. About 30 seconds later Ken emerged from the pileup with his shirt torn and made his way back to the front of the stage. He strapped on his bass and said into the microphone "Nazis are NOT FUCKING WELCOME at a Dropkick Murphys show."
Ken Casey is a fucking badass.
is it wrong to loath Celtic punk bands due to all the obnoxious Irish/Bostonian douchbaggery that always comes with it?
