Dropkick Murphys video Going Out In Style

Dropkick Murphys video

The Dropkick Murphys’ have released a video featuring a wild Irish wake to help promote their new CD, Going Out In Style, which is now on sale.

The song tells the story of old man who is literally ‘going out in style’ by having a raucous wake to mark his departure from this world.

It’s a hard driving punk song with the usual good measure of Irish musical overtones that we’ve come to expect from the Murphys.

Watch the video here.
