my favorite celtic crap

In honor of my very favorite green day (sorry Earth Day), I'm sharing you with my favorite Irish* band, Flogging Molly. I know, I know, to many of you U2 fans *cough*spencer*cough* that's blasphamy...but still true. I love 'em because they're fun, they're fresh, I have a thing for accents (what girl doesn't though, reeeally?)...not to mention the fact that, growing up, I was forced to listen to hours upon hours of my dad's favorite music, which I fondly referred to as "celtic crap," so I suppose one could say it's influenced my musical preferences. Without further ado, I give you two of my very favorite Flogging Molly songs:

ps-sorry, there are no actual videos, just the song.

*yes, I realize they were actually formed in L.A., but their lead singer and founder is Irish and they're recognized as a Celtic band, so that's good enough for me.


  1. Love it! I happen to like other celtic crap music, too, but the boys and I were jigging to this as the laundry was being tackled. Hooray for leprechauns, green (my fav color) and sexy, yummy accents. Ahhhh...

  2. Hey! - I like my celtic crap music. In fact we were watching some Riverdance this morning (on the Today show) and my son was enthralled.

    And you are bordering blasphemy with the whole U2 thing. And now I'm off to make some Irish Soda Bread in honor St. Patty's Day.

  3. LOVE it! You're spot on about accents. : )
