Here’s one we’ve been eagerly anticipating! It’s the Dropkick Murphys covering 1913 ballad “Peg o’ My Heart.” As if that wasn’t enough, they’re joined by a special guest: Bruce Springsteen. The cut comes from their Going Out in Style album (out Tuesday). Originally from the 1900s Broadway series Ziegfield Follies, this one sounds exactly like you’d want Dropkick and the Boss to sound. Raise those steins high and listen below.
