Dropkick Murphys rock out in support of Wisconsin union workers

Guinness-powered Irish-American rockers the Dropkick Murphys have always been something of a working-class phenomenon. And now, they’re not just pleasing the blue-collar masses with an anthemic new album, “Going Out In Style,” released March 1 on their own Born & Bred Records. They’re looking out for their best interests, as well, via the set’s fist-pumping single “Take ’Em Down,” which they’re streaming in advance in support of all of the Wisconsin union workers protesting the governor’s essentially union-busting budget.

The band — working in conjunction with the AFL-CIO, SEIU (Service Employees International Union) and AFSCME (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees) — has donated the song to be played at solidarity rallies. And they’ve also created a limited edition “Take ’Em Down” T-shirt, available at their site, with all proceeds benefitting the Workers Rights Emergency Response Fund.

Dropkick Murphys: 1, Scott Walker: 0.
