    I grew up thinking "four dead cheerleaders" was by Dropkick Murphys. What is real any more?! [2]

    I always wondered why "Four Dead Cheerleaders" doesn't sound like the Dropkick Murphys at all... now I know why. [2]

    Scotland does this kind of jangly pop remarkably well...Teenage Fanclub, Primary 5, Dropkick...

    I did some google-research, and this is some info I found: Along with Four Dead Cheerleaders, the other songs on No Time To Be Young are: I've Been Sick No Time To Be Young Black and Burned Friendly Fire. Apparently, Friendly Fire is also available for downloading, but I haven't been able to find it yet. The drummer from the punk-Dropkick used to play in DRI, and the singer now

    I know. My point was, Four Dead Cheerleaders is very unlikely to be by this band. To be sure we're on the same line here, I'm referring to http://www.last.fm/music/Dropkick_Murphys/_/Four%20Dead%20Cheerleaders

    I don't know which DKM songs you've heard namnatulco, but Dropkick (the punk band) sounds NOTHING like them!!

    Isn't four dead cheerleaders by Dropkick Murphys? It sounds consistent with other songs by them, anyway.
