No one decent is a fan of fighting, but when the shit goes down, by far and the way the best part is telling the story of the fight every night in the pub for the following week. The other night the Dropkick Murphys (remember them!?) were playing at Terminal 5 in Boston, and what with them being of Irish descent, the shows were on a St Patricks Day hype. During the encores at one show, everyone was piled onto the stage, and some nasty Nazi skin slipped through the net and started Sieg Heiling to the crowd, founding member/bass player/lead singer Ken Casey took care of it. Then the band got to tell the story in the virtual pub that is the internet.

Here's what went down, via Rocks Off:

It was St Patty's Day week, the shows were packed, and people were getting drunk. And Rowdy. Really Rowdy. As has become tradition the band invited the ladies to come onto the stage for their encore of "Kiss Me Im Shitfaced" 50+ ladies made it past the barricade and onto the stage and danced the song away. The band then kicked into "Skinhead on the MBTA" and a ton of dudes werre getting past security and the stage ended up being packed tighter than the underside of a real man's kilt. As the band kicked into T.N.T. by AC/DC some moron started seig heiling (the nazi salute) in time to the beat.

Ken Casey noticed this and ran right over to the guy, smashed him in the face, took off his bass and hit him with that and then jumped on him and all out chaos ensued. We could only assume from our vantage point that said nazi got his ass kicked. About 30 seconds later Ken emerged from the pileup with his shirt torn and made his way back to the front of the stage. He strapped on his bass and said into the microphone "Nazis are NOT FUCKING WELCOME at a Dropkick Murphys show."

That's good to know.

Some bright spark even caught the whole thing on film, imagine that:

Lovely stuff.

This is a pretty sweet jam, too:
