Worker's Song

by

Dropkick Murphys



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This song is about the working class in America, and how they are often oppressed by society and government. Despite their considerable contributions, they often work in poor conditions for low pay, and are the first ones sent to war. (thanks, Tom - Westfield, NJ)
Dropkick Murphys included this song on their 2010 Live on Lansdowne DVD. Live performances are very important to the band. Their drummer Matt Kelly told us: "A song develops a lot more when you play it live every night, and each live album shows the songs played slightly different, slightly quicker, or slower, or there'll be little nuances that weren't on the original studio recording that we think enhance the songs. So the live experience isn't just like listening to a tape of the studio versions.
Not tooting our horns, but the way to experience our band is in the live setting, because you get the crowd singing along and get bumped around; it's very three-dimensional – or I should say four- or five-dimensional entertainment, if you will."

The Murhpys are one of America's greatest bands and this song is good proof. I work 9 hour days at a funiture factory and LOVE to listen to this on the drive home. These guys are the real deal. SING LOUD, SING PROUD!!!
