Yeah, we know, Dropkick Murphys are a punk band, not a metal one, but this is pretty awesome. Last week in New York, Dropkick Murphys were playing at Terminal 5, and a lot of people were onstage for their set-ending cover of AC/DC’s “TNT.” Bassist Ken Casey noticed one of them seig heiling, and didn’t take kindly to that, smashing his bass over the guy. This is what Rocks Off had to say about it:
Last week when the Dropkick Murphys played Terminal 5 for two nights, things were going according to plan. 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 I’m 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 were 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.
Dropkicks singer / bassist 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.”
Pretty hardcore. And probably the last time that guy will be seig heiling on stage for a while. You can see it go down at about 1:30.
