Dropkick Murphys tells Wisconsin Republican to drop their song

MAY 14, 2012 – The band Dropkick Murphys has asked Wisconsin Republican Senate candidate Jeff Fitzgerald to stop using their song "Shipping up to Boston" at his rallies. Dropkick Murphys have written a song in support of Wisconsin workers, and are a big part of the recall election of Republican Governor Scott Walker. So naturally they were upset when they found out an anti-union politician was using one of their songs and said in a Facebook post, "The stupidity and irony of this is laughable. A Wisconsin Republican U.S. Senate candidate – and crony of anti-Union Governor Scott Walker – using a Dropkick Murphys song as an intro is like a white supremacist coming out to gangsta rap!" Fitzgerald has agreed to stop playing their song. Check out their song "Take 'em Down" in support of unions and Wisconsin workers below.  (photo credit: darkterp/Wiki)
