Currently Listening: Do Or Die

It appears from Dave's most recent post that we are both on a Dropkick Murphys kick lately.

I realized a few days ago that I actually do not own the album The Meanest of Times so I went to a local CD shop to see if I could find it. Well, I did not find that particular CD but I did find a copy of the album Do or Die, which, strangely enough, I also do not have a copy of.

Here is some information about that album for your reading pleasure:
