Well, the site's already Green...

so there's nothing left but to go for some Celt-Punk, knock back some whiskey, and enjoy being snowed in...

The Pogues - The Sick Bed of Cuchullain lots of people name drop the pogues. Far fewer people actually seem to have listened to them. And so, yes, I AM posting one of the 3 most popular songs they ever put out. People need to actually know what they're dropping - and know that this really IS punk rock.

Ted Leo (solo) - Dirty Old Town - a cover off of 2003's "Tell Balgeary Balgury is Dead" EP, Leo makes a song that normally sounds drunk and very... well... Irish... into a more universal song of yearning and loss.

Flogging Molly - Devils Dance Floor Dave King's hair metal history aside, the man now looks like a game show host. All of this is irrelevant however, in the context of the fact that he is a part of a band that truly and decidedly knows how to put together some truly tight folk-punk. Stuff that really and truly makes a guy want to learn just how to jig. Or maybe, as was the plan all along, just jump in a pit and make something up. Preferably while inebriated.
