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

St. Patty’s Day is Sunday, and that’s got us drinking green beer and cranking up the Irish music. Here are some favorites:

Flogging Molly. Duh.

The Tossers. Chicago’s most well-known Irish band.

Avondale Ramblers. Opening for the Tossers this weekend. Another fine Chicago-based Irish band…

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.
