what do you punks think of the Dropkick Murphys. They're my favorite. Prefer Al Barr or Mike McColgan? Discuss
#2
Meh, a few songs at best, then I just start to get pissed off.
bands/artists I've seen: Protest the Hero, LIGHTS, Andrew Bird, Flight of the Conchords, Incubus, Nine Inch Nails, Between the Buried and Me, Guthrie Govan, Cynic, The Devin Townsend Project, Scale the Summit, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Darkest Hour

I agree with whyvern, I'm not a fan and people from Boston talk funny.

But then so do people from the South...

They were cool when I was first getting into punk, but I can't say I listen to them a lot anymore.

Or at all.

Worcester = Respect

Boston = Waste of Coast

but seriously, RINGERS are a much better band from Boston.

I like Boston. It's a nice city and all. Plus the Pixies were from Boston, and the Pixies rule.

^ have you ever tried to drive there? Rome is an easier city to drive in than Boston... for real.

I liked them when I first got into punk - the song "Bar Room Heroes" really caught my attention. Quickly got bored of them, though.

Utterly overrated. Still a pretty fun band, but they get old fast.

Have a nice day

They aren't a punk band anymore. I call them rock more than anything. After Blackout really showed their style change from a punk group to a rock group. You may call them generic but their slow songs are extremely well written and composed in my opinion.

And whats with all the shit about Boston, I know Whyvern has his problems with the city, but that is more of a personal issue... I love Boston

CBGB wants to be famous like the others such as Green Day and Offspring. They don't want to be a underground punk band.

If I started a band, and tried to write every second song about the city I'm from, it would not go well.

I don't have problems with any of the people in the city... well some people yeah, but I have that with the whole of New England though cos I'm a southerner so it's to be expected.

I actually saw some great shows there... and some terrible ones... when I was there with THOMAS FUNCTION there were 3 people at the show and the manager of the PA Lounge tried to kick us out like 4 times and paid the local band instead of THOMAS FUNCTION.

But when I saw RINGERS, CLOSET FARIERS and THE MODERN MACHINES there it was awesome. THE PINE HILL HAINTS show was good just cos the HAINTS played... but all in all Worcester has a more awesome, interesting and accepting punk rock scene. I'd say the same for Providence too.

Boston is the most well known outta the triangle but it's the weakest. That's not to say that cool shit doesn't come outta Boston. But the cool shit in Worcester and Providence is a million times more awesome.

Boston as a city isn't really that interesting though, New York has for more cool shit to see... and the attitude isn't as annoying in New York either cos there's so many different people from all over the world. All Boston is whining about how New York is better than them in everything (not just baseball).

Maybe if we were talking about just Allston or Summerville I'd think differently but Boston as a whole is kinda lame-o.

Plus as I said before it's impossible to drive there and no public transport after midnight? Lame!

Actually, I should write a song about how the part of the disney "documentary" that popularized the myth of lemming mass-suicide was filmed in calgary, even though it was supposed to take place in the arctic. And they forced all those lemmings off the cliff.

That's actually a pretty good topic. Maybe I'll get started on that.

Now that I think about it, there's actually a great punk song about calgary.

Download Molotov Rocktail and listen to "Calgary Libre." DKM couldn't write a 'hometown' song like that.

Al Barr lives in the same town as me, and he's a nice enough guy I guess. Shitty band though.

I like DKM shows, since they´re always great, they can even manage to make good shows for a huge amount of people, though I think they´re were hyped in the last years, any whiskey loving nazi idiot likes them now. Furthermore it gets on my nerves that they´re so full of patriotism, since patriotism kills, though Live on St. Patrick´s day is a decent album.

agreed.


i could listen to Flogging Molly for hours at a time, but i find i get kind of tired of the Dropkick Murphys after 7-8 songs.


they're good, but not that good.
#34
I quite like DKM.
They do get quite tedious to listen to after a while though. I preferred seeing them live.
I've only seen them once, but I had such a good night; they invited the ladies up on stage which was good fun, and Mad Caddies and the Briggs were supporting

The Warrior's Code = awesome album


I agree, but I actually like the Meanest of Times a little better. Warrior's Code might be my absolute favorite DKM song but I was introduced to them with Meanest of Times and I just liked it.

Mad Caddies were quite entertaining when I saw them. But i've only seen them once, so they might not usually be.

I didn't realize they actually wrote any songs. I thought they ripped them all off from Irish folk songs.

ha! How a year can change your views on shit.... I still have a dropkick murphys poster in my dorm room, but its more just because people will know what it is compared to my Wingnut Dishwashers Union one. And i hate Massachusetts now...boston too, they are all assholes. But i will still listen to the murphys cause it serves as a good buffer for music i can get into and music other people know...if that makes any sense at all which i doubt it does.

Didn't they do a split with Oi Polloi?
