North meets South: Dropkick Murphys to bring a little Boston to Charleston

You can count on two hands the number of bands from Boston bigger than the Dropkick Murphys -- Aerosmith, The Cars and, well, Boston, among them -- but you'd be hard-pressed to find another more synonymous with Beantown than the Murphys. Credit the 2006 Boston mob film "The Departed" (prominently featuring "I'm Shipping Up to Boston") as well as the Red Sox, who employed the band's version of "Tessie" as the unofficial anthem on the team's way to the 2004 World Series victory, the Sox's first in 86 years.
