Default Bostonians current and past

Around here the Drop Kick Murphys are on the radio a LOT. I know they're a local band, and I like them a lot, just curious if this is just a local thing or if they're getting air play in other geographies (starting to become more of a national act?).

Having lived away from here from 92-06, I have to say I don't remember hearing many Boston bands elsewhere until they had become huge national acts. So what's the deale with the DKMs?

I love their music but rarely hear them anywhere but on my MP3 player.

I've heard them on the radio before and have been listening to them for awhile but I think they're getting more airplay since they did the song for The Departed

I haven't heard them (other than on Rhapsody) since I move from Boston 3 years ago.

I love the Dropckicks! I've got XM, and I never hear it. They never play it on the radio in LA either. I've got most of their CD's to make up for it....

I don't hear them on Sirius, either, which I spend tons of time listening to since I drive a lot for work -- that's part of the reason I wonder if they're ever on radio outside of MA/New England...

Yeah, they are definitely a great band to see on St. Patty's day. We almost saw them on St. Patty's in Boston a couple years back but it was too much of a zoo so we went elsewhere.

I don't think I've ever heard them on the radio here in Chicago, but I don't listen to music on the radio very often. I have listened to them before and think some of their stuff is quite good.

I saw them after a Bruins game. They played for about 45 minutes. They were really good. The Bruins won too...
