If there’s a song that channels The Pogues’ famous effort in terms of accents, style and downbeat lyrics while still being bouncy and catchy… it’s this one from The Dropkick Murphys, released in 2012. The video that goes with it just begs to be watched – don’t just shove it on in the background. Four minutes well spent!
As an aside, the band have a new album, 11 Short Stories of Pain and Glory, coming your way on January 4th. The perfect late present to give someone with a stonking hangover.
