Dropkick Murphys
Dropkick Murphys have released an advance stream of their new song “Take ‘Em Down” in support of the thousands of Wisconsin union workers who are protesting the governor’s budget plan. Listen to the song here.

In addition, as part of their way of showing solidarity with this movement, Dropkick Murphys are working with the AFL-CIO, SEIU (Service Employees International Union) and AFSCME (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees) and have made the song available to be played at solidarity rallies across the country. The band has also created a limited edition “Take ‘Em Down” t-shirt which will be available for sale here.

Proceeds from the “Take ‘Em Down” t-shirt sales will benefit Workers' Rights Emergency Response Fund. Messages of support can also be sent to those fighting for their rights in Wisconsin via this link: http://action.seiu.org/page/s/wisconsin?via=ta-home.

Dropkick Murphys will release their new CD Going Out In Style, which includes “Take ‘Em Down," March 1 on their own Born & Bred Records (ILG).
