The Dropkick Murphys, an Irish-American Celtic Punk band originating in Boston, have grown from a local group to one of the best known rock bands in the world, thanks in large part to their extraordinary live shows. The band, which has released six albums, attributes their music to a mixing of several genres including punk rock, Irish folk, rock and hardcore music.
In 1998, the Dropkick Murphys released their first full length album Do or Die, and since then have had many successful singles including smash hits “Walk Away” from their 2003 album Blackout, and “I’m Shipping Up to Boston,” which has been certified platinum, from their 2006 album The Warrior’s Code.
In 2007, the Dropkick Murphys made their major-label debut with The Meanest of Times, released by Warner Bros. Records, and last March they released their second live album Live on Lansdowne, Boston MA, which featured the band’s first full-length live DVD, and debuted at number 25 on the Billboard Charts.
