Turntable Thursday

I like punk music. Yes, this Utah County born and raised Mom likes punk music. I don't dress all in black (not that there is anything wrong with that Melissa M.) and even though I like skulls, I don't dare wear them (I know...I should live a little and at least buy a pair of sneakers with skulls). So with just one look, you might not know that I like punk music. Now I am not as into punk as my sister (she goes to most of the punk shows here in town...MXPX is her favorite to this day, I think) but I have been listening to the punk station on Sirius more than the others lately. Especially since they play a lot of Clash and Ramones. I like the new bands that are giving out an old school sound. One of the punk bands I have been listening to a lot are the Dropkick Murphys. They are a band from Boston, and they combine punk with Celtic music and are amazing! I would love to see them live in a pub setting. Too bad MacCool's doesn't have a stage!!! Take a listen to them on lastfm....or even on iTunes, let me know what you think...they are upbeat and like I have said before, even if the lyrics aren't happy ones, the background music makes me happy!!!

I've heard of the Dropkick Murphys and heard they were good so I'll use your links to finally check them out. I always love new music!

Will have a listen. I love punk too! I once went to my man-babies apt. and they were listening to the Ramones! I new I had raised them up right. One of my finer moments being a parent.
