Irish Punk Rock Always Gets A Pass

Not sure why Irish people get a pass. Maybe the music is more comprehensible. Not even sure what that means. I do, people are able to relate to it better. I love all that are just trying to do the right thing. In fact, hate punk rock fans. They are jerks and keep trying to say what is and what is not. Which makes me want to do the same thing. Well, here it is. What makes Flogging Molly more Punk than Rancid. Both played slow songs. Both have meaning. There is no better, just how people want to perceive them. Yet, Rancid gets called pop and Flogging Molly gets called Irish Folk Punk at the worse. BS and really do not care.Just wish people knew their own mind. Tim's voice could never be pop if he wanted and Flogging Molly, you get peoples ear because you are different. That is what I like. Tired of the same old thought process in this country. Both still punk no matter how slow the song is. It is a mindset not a sound. I know it is Patties Day, but lets not be fake, something punk rockers hate the most.

I love this crossbones. It seems more like folk to me.

Ever listen to Ashley MacIsaac? Play's a violin, does traditional songs with a punk bent. Wears Docs with his kilt. Really cool. But you're right. Punk, goth, metal, all mindsets that, for some reason, people tend to forget when they get into the "my band is more punk than your band" thing. (Although I'm guilty of doing this when it comes to modern country music.) Good post.
