St. Patty’s Day is Saturday, and that’s got us drinking green beer and cranking up the Irish music. Here are some favorites:
The Tossers. Chicago’s most well-known Irish band.
Avondale Ramblers. An up-and-comer from Chicago.
My Bloody Valentine. The “Loveless” album. Oh, man…
The Cranberries. RIP Dolores.
Hozier. Country Wicklow native who ended up on makeout playlists everywhere with this one:
The Pogues. Naturally.
Stiff Little Fingers. “The Irish Clash.”
Sinead O’Connor. Ignore the tabloid distractions. Her music is tremendous.
Dropkick Murphys. Boston’s long-running Celtic punks.
Thin Lizzy. The old-school favorite.
U2. Ireland’s biggest musical export.
