* SelfFulfillingProphecy: The subject of "Loyal to No One" declared that "we all die alone", and the song later notes "in this case you were right/No friends by your side, or family in sight", as his awful personality and use of others for his own gain while giving nothing in return has alienated his family and any friends he may have ever had.


The Dropkick Murphys are a well known Celtic Punk band from Quincy, Massachusetts, named after a rehab center near where the first members grew up. They have released eight studio albums since their founding, gaining a fair amount of popularity for their song "I'm Shipping Up To Boston", which was featured in the 2006 film ''Film/TheDeparted'' - as well as ''many'' other sources. This is interesting, as the lyrics were originally by Music/WoodyGuthrie, he just never finished it before he died (it wasn't the first time the band had covered an unrecorded Guthrie song, either. They covered his "Gonna Be A Blackout Tonight" on their 2003 album ''Blackout'')
