Dropkick Murphys – “Paying My Way”

Boston Celtic punk veterans Dropkick Murphys are coming back in the first week of next year with a new album called 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory, and I’m delighted to report that it fucking rules. We’ve already posted the band’s version of the Broadway standard and soccer anthem “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” and now they’ve shared another song called “Paying My Way.” It’s a got a slower, more deliberate pace than anything these guys would’ve done in their early days, but it’s got a huge, anthemic chorus and a great whole-bar-singalong feel to it. Check it out below.

11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory is out 1/6 on the band’s own Born & Bred label. There’s also a history-heavy NHL highlights video for “Paying My Way,” which you can watch here.
