Erin go Bragh! Celebrating Irish music for St. Patrick’s Day

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.”

Damien Rice.

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.
