Celtic rock/punk bands or songs
 
Hey! So I'm looking for great songs in the genre Celtic rock or celtic punk. Other than Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys and the Malones.
I'd be grateful for tips.
Thank you!

Welcome to MB, SkimrandeKlover :wave:

You didn't mention The Pogues, so just in case you haven't come across them yet:-

How about Albannach? I guess they're not technically rock because they don't use rock instruments, but I'd argue that they actually rock a lot harder than a lot of rock bands.

^ Good one, Jans. That's a pretty high-energy performance which surely counts as rock in all but name. They made me think of Saor Patrol who use a similar line up of instruments:-



And this is to recommend a song rather than a band; Shooglenifty usually go for a lightly-modernised traditional sound, but with a few songs they edge closer to rock. IMO Igor's is one of their best songs; a glimpse of what they could do if they left the traditional sound furthur behind:-

I saw them live a few years ago and they were really good—those drums sound pretty intense in person.
