Love Dropkick Murphy, "Warrior's Code" is the ultimate wakeboard song. I'm no snob that either likes Dropkick or Flogging Molly, I like both. Dropkick is kind of East Coast Irish rock, and Flogging is kinda West Coast Irish Rock. Love this video too:
I'm a huge fan of both as well. I really want to go to a Dropkick Murphys St. Patrick's Day show in Boston as I heard they are an amazing live band. Speaking of live bands, I'm not a huge fan of live albums, but Flogging Mollys album recorded at the Greek Theater is incredible.

I've been listening to Gasoline Heart recently. The front man Louie is a really awesome dude and I had the pleasure of performing with him in Gainesville last spring during his solo tour (I butchered some Petty... which should be a sin in Gainesville).
There aren't too many good quality videos of the band on Youtube so this will have to do, its Louie performing acoustic at a bus stop in Denver:
When I originally saw that video a little while back I thought to myself "who would make such a terrible video?" so I looked into it and it turns out the label is Ark Music Factor and a factory is basically what they are: they take a bunch of tweens and young teens, give them one terribly written song each (which is usually auto-tuned), make a video, post it on Youtube to try and go viral, and then set up a mall tour.....alll with within a few day. Many people believe that the parents of these kids are forking over tons of cash to the label because there's no way the label could handle the budget of the videos and mall tours by itself as well as make profit. They will basically take anyone who wants to sing as long as they fall in the age range. I smell something fishy here.
