The Dropkick Murphys: The Boys are Back (2013)
Much of The Dropkick Murphys (more HERE) surprising success is attributable to their focus on making giant-sized punk-folk-rock sound work both in arenas/stadiums/diamonds and movie theaters. By bringing the likes of the Bruins and Scorsese to their side, they've been able to prosper in this musician-unfriendly century. Whether you think they're simply formulaic or impressively consistent (as I do) you have to admire their survival skills.
