Dropkick Murphys raise $100K for Boston marathon victims

In a time where their city needed them the most, they delivered in a big way.

Dropkick Murphys raise $100K for Boston marathon victims


When you think of Boston, you can't help but think of Celtic punk band Dropkick Murphys. They've written countless hits inspired by their beloved city so it only seemed right for them to give back at a time where their city needed it the most.

Almost immediately after the Boston marathon explosions, the band began selling a "For Boston" shirt in their online store with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the victims and family. Within the first 15 hours of the sale going live, they raised $65,000 and hit the $100,000 mark soon after.

You can still buy the shirt here.
