Flogging Molly is a celtic [[PunkRock punk]] band from Los Angeles. They formed in 1997, due to a dispute between vocalist Dave King and Creator/EpicRecords. King, the former vocalist for the 1980s British metal band Fastway, had planned to embark on a solo career and leave hard rock behind for a sound that hewed closer to the folk music of his native Ireland. Epic refused to let him use traditional Irish instruments in his music, causing him to leave the label to form a band with fiddle player Bridget Regan.

King and Ragan worked to find five more members. Eventually guitarist Dennis Casey, bassist Nathan Maxwell, Drummer George Schwindt, mandolin player Bob Schmidt, and accordion player Matt Hensley joined, completing the seven-piece band. Every Monday the band played at a club called Molly Malone's, which prompted them to name their band Flogging Molly.
