Dropkick Murphys

Dropkick Murphys are an American Celtic punk band formed in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1996. The band was signed to independent punk record label Hellcat Records, releasing five albums for the label, making a name for themselves locally through constant touring and yearly St. Patrick's Day week shows, held in and around Boston; the 2004 single "Tessie" became the band's first mainstream hit and one of their biggest charting singles to date. The band's final Hellcat release, 2005's The Warrior's Code, included the song "I'm Shipping Up to Boston"; the band is known for their loud, energetic live shows. In 2007, the band began releasing music through their own imprint label, Born & Bred via Alternative Distribution Alliance. 2007's The Meanest of Times made its debut at No. 20 on the Billboard charts and featured the successful single, "The State of Massachusetts", while 2011's Going Out in Style was an bigger success, making its debut at No. 6, giving the band their highest-charting album to date.

The band's eighth studio album and Sealed in Blood was released in 2013 making its debut at No. 9 on the Billboard charts and featured the single "The Season's Upon Us", a Christmas song, one of the band's highest charting singles. The band's ninth album, 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory was released on January 6, 2017 and debuted at number 8 on the Billboard charts; the Dropkick Murphys were formed in 1996 in Boston consisting of lead vocalist Mike McColgan, bassist/vocalist Ken Casey, guitarist Rick Barton, drummer Jeff Erna. The band was named after Dr. John "Dropkick" Murphy's alcohol-detoxification facility; the "Dropkick Murphys" first started playing in the basement of a friend's barbershop and soon began to tour and record. They received their first big break when the Mighty Mighty Bosstones selected them as the opening act for their 1997 tour in support of Let's Face It. After putting out a series of EPs, they were signed by Hellcat Records in 1997. In 1998 they released their first full-length album, Do or Die, produced by Rancid's Lars Frederiksen.

Lead singer Mike McColgan left the band in 1998 during the middle of a US tour with the Business. According to McColgan he wanted to follow in the footsteps of his uncle and join the Boston Fire Department, which he would do in 2001; the band gave a different explanation for McColgan's departure in the liner notes of their 1998 7" release Curse of a Fallen Soul: "We'd like to take this time to let you know that Mike McColgan, our former lead singer has quit the band. We apologize to anyone, a fan of Mike as our singer, however contrary to popular rumor, he did not leave the band to join the fire department. Mike left the band because he is no longer interested in being a member of this band or the movement of which we are a part." The band goes on to explain that their music is serious to them and that it did not feel right having a singer, going through the motions. Mike felt that the band deserved a singer, invested in the music. Mike would return to the punk scene in 2002 as singer of the Street Dogs.

Following McColgan's departure, the band searched for a replacement however were not having much luck. Al Barr, lead singer for the Bruisers was well aware of the Dropkick Murphys and at first resented the fact that the Dropkick Murphys were becoming one of the biggest bands in the area, opening for all the bigger bands to come through, a slot Barr and the Bruisers would have obtained. Barr was informed of McColgan's departure and assumed that the band was finished however he was contacted by Derek TC NYSR producer-founder of the groundbreaking 1990s Oi!-Skampilation series at the Middle East Club in Cambridge and informed to contact Ken Casey right away. Barr went in to audition for the band, first performing a new song titled "10 Years of Service" and was offered the job right away, which he accepted. Barr's first release with the band was the 1998 7" single for "Curse of a Fallen Soul". On March 9, 1999, the band released their second studio album and first with Barr, The Gang's All Here.

The album featured more of a hardcore–street punk sound closer to that of Barr's former band, the Bruisers and more of an Irish influence than on their debut album. The band gained their first mainstream exposure when the video for their single "10 Years of Service" received airplay on the MTV show 120 Minutes; the band set out on a year-long tour to support the album. In late 1999, the band along with the Business, released a split single titled, "Mob Mentality" in 1999. A year they released a full-length album of the same name featuring the two bands covering each other's songs along with songs from other artists. Dropkick Murphys re-recorded their own song "Boys on the Docks" with Al on vocals; as the band began the process of recording their third album in 2000, Rick Barton decided to quit during the recording sessions. In 2014 Barton discussed his departure saying "Myself and Kenny ended up hating each other. We've since made amends, but you know, touring in a band for four straight years… that same old story."

With Barton gone, the band added four new members which included former Ducky Boys guitarist James Lynch, who joined shortly prior to Barton's departure, 17-year-old guitarist Marc Orrell and tin whistle player Ryan Foltz and bagpipe player Robbie "Spicy McHaggis" Mederios, whose nickname was inspired by a McDonald's menu item while the band was on a tour in Scotland, would join the band as their new full-time b
