Flogging Molly

Flogging Molly’s music is influenced by various artists, such as The Dubliners, The Pogues, Horslips, Johnny Cash, and The Clash. The album Within a Mile of Home is dedicated to Joe Strummer and Johnny Cash.

Their music ranges from boisterous Celtic punk, like the pirate-themed Salty Dog, Cruel Mistress, and Seven Deadly Sins, or the defiant What’s Left of the Flag, Drunken Lullabies, and Rebels of the Sacred Heart to more somber songs like Far Away Boys, The Son Never Shines (On Closed Doors), Life in a Tenement Square and Float. Lyrics typically touch on subjects such as Ireland and its history, poverty, drinking, politics, love and death and include several references to the Roman Catholic Church.
