The Undertones (presumably somewhere in Ireland).
6. “Lisdoonvarna” by Christy Moore
Why not keep that chilled-out feeling going a little longer? Christy Moore is a musical traditionalist, jamming out classic Irish folk tunes with a thick accent and a flair for lyrics that tell epic tales.
7. “Teenage Kicks” by The Undertones
Back to some Irish punk. The Undertones aren’t quite as well known as the Pogues or Dropkick Murphys, but their Ramones-inspired three-chord melodies are fast and infectious and make for some solid listening. “Teenage Kicks” is the band’s best-known track for good reason.

8. “Lannigan’s Ball” by O’Connor Brothers
Irish music doesn’t get much more authentic than O’Connor Brothers, and “Lannigan’s Ball” is one of their best.
9. “Roscabury” by Finnegan Rovers
You might just have to do a jig to this one. Fortunately, you’ll likely have imbibed enough dance juice now to execute something vaguely resembling a traditional Irish folk dance. Actually, don’t do it. Just don’t.
10. “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” by Dropkick Murphys
By this point, you may be feeling slightly lethargic after a few too many dark beers. Time to fight the fatigue by turning up the volume on this fast and loud Dropkick Murphys closer. Erin Go Bragh, indeed.
