Dropkick Murphys - Firm rehab firm

Interpreters of Celtic punk and Oi! (let's say punk rock customized for the masses).

How Dropkick Murphys got the band name - Dr. Dropkick Murphy - WrestlingThe band is from Quincy, Massachusetts and was named after legendary wrestler Dr. John 'Dropkick' Murphy.

Some sources embrace the theory that the Dropkick Murphys owe their name to an alcohol rehabilitation clinic (drying out center) near Boston.

That is quite possible, because 'Dropkick' Murphy was the owner of such an institution, officially called Bellows Farm but popularly known as Dropkick Murphy's (place).

That the clinic - as the rumors want - focused on poor wino's who were pulled out of the gutter seems very unlikely.

As early as 1942 Murphy already charged $25 per week for a course of treatment (about $ 350 in our time) and that, of course, was an amount that not everyone could afford, not even by returning empty bottles.

Active: 1996-present, USA
