So I went to Best Buy the other day because my dad wanted to get something, and as I was browsing through the CDs and I found Dropkick Murphys albums! I was excited, because I really like this band. My brother introduced them to me when he came home for a week before going to Iraq. He only had a few songs, so I thought I'd burn these and send him a copy. :D
But enough about my life.
Dropkick Murphys are a celtic punk band formed in Quincy, Massachusetts, USA. The band name came from a few things.
Members Mike McColgan and Ken Casey said:
The band’s name was stolen from an old rehab where they used to take skid row bums in Boston... We always heard of old-timers in our neighborhood telling war stories about being locked up at Dropkick Murphy's, so we decided that if we ever started a band, that would be the name.
Interesting, no?
Anyways, the music is very catchy. I doubt there's a song you won't like on these three albums. I recommend their most recent Album The Meanest Of Times, because I just simply love that album. Although it doesn't have my favorite song of theirs (I'm Shipping Up To Boston - which I highly recommend to new listeners.), there isn't a song I don't like on the album.
I'm...really bad at descriptions and summaries, so I'm going to say just try them out yourself. Or, read more about them at their Wikipedia page.

I highly recommend them though. :Db

These are also my rips, if you couldn't tell. (Except for The Meanest Of Times. I didn't buy it because I bought a different CD, but I wish I had.)
So I don't care what you do with them, as long as you don't claim them as yours. ♥

Remember, you are not required to join?, but you are more than welcome to!
Please leave a thank you if taking, otherwise.
