  • For almost 10 years, the Dropkick Murphys have been an intricate thread in the fabric of Boston's punk and hardcore scene. Blue-collar blood running through their veins, the Dropkicks have never wavered from their play hard, work harder mentality. Here is their story.


    In this Flash presentation, Dropkick Murphys founding member Ken Casey talks about the new CD, an underdog's mentality, and the quest to jam with AC/DC.
    View the full-length music video for "Sunshine Highway," from the Dropkick Murphy's fifth full-length album, "The Warrior's Code," released on June 21.
    Dropkicks Murphys are currently on the "Warped Tour" with other acts including Transplants, The Offspring, and dozens of others. The tour hits Mass. on Aug. 15th in Northhampton.
