* TheAlcoholic: Shane, Shane, ''Shane''. Though in one interview he denied being an alcoholic, arguing that an alcoholic is someone who thinks he can stop drinking anytime, and he didn't have any delusions about that.

Their biggest hit, "Fairytale of New York", has been voted Britain's favourite Christmas song or thereabouts on several occasions, and reliably returns to the charts every December. It was certified a million seller in 2012, 25 years after its original release.

They're often noted for awesome songwriting, their mix of traditional folk music with punkish energy, and sadly, the horrible death of guest vocalist Kirsty MacColl and the very public self destruction (and [[BritishTeeth poor dental hygiene]]) of Shane [=MacGowan=].

The Pogues were, and occasionally still are, a Celtic UsefulNotes/{{Punk}} band from London, formed as Pogue Mahone in 1982. After landing several hits in TheEighties and early [[TheNineties Nineties]], they lost lead singer/songwriter Shane [=MacGowan=] to [[TheAlcoholic personal issues]] in 1991, and after two more albums [[TheBandMinusTheFace the band]] called it quits in 1996. The band reformed in 2001 and has gone on several tours, but have no plans to record any new material.
