Subscribe to Loudwire on
Having pioneered celtic punk for over 20 years, Dropkick Murphys are one of the most beloved bands in recent memory. There’s plenty of incredible moments in those 20 years, so we wanted to know which ones documented on Wikipedia are true.
Ken Casey loved that Wikipedia wrote that Al Barr was jealous of the Murphys success while he was singing for The Bruisers. But is the claim true? You’ll find out above. You also hear about when Barr got the call to come down and sing for Dropkick Murphys, getting stoned and convincing himself that he couldn’t possibly sing the tracks.
Wikipedia also claims that Dropkick Murphys were surprised at first that Irish influence crept into their music, further stating they weren’t too pleased with the realization. Casey reveals whether this is true or false and how he wrote Dropkick Murphys’ first-ever track, “Barroom Hero.”
