The Irish classic: Dropkick Murphys
Luck o' the Irish: This Irish-American punk band known for publicly -- and loudly -- expressing their political and social views has been around in various iterations since 1996. They've campaigned for workers unions and against George Bush. Like any good Boston band, they also support the Red Sox (they're seen here playing in Fenway Park during the 2007 American League Championship Series).
The band is possibly best known to mainstream audiences through movie soundtracks. Songs from their 2005 album "The Warrior's Code" were used in Irish-American rich movies "The Fighter" and "The Departed." Their music was also heard in the 2010 documentary "Restrepo."
The take-away: Who says Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi have the monopoly on working-class anthems?
