  1. Which version of “Boys on the Docks” is your favorite?

    The version of “Skinhead on the MBTA” on The Singles Collection is amazing. The energy of the crowd and then the busting into AC/DC’s “TNT” was just way too cool.

    I love the cover of “Knock Me Down” that they did on Mob Mentality. That song was originally done by Rick Barton’s old band The Outlets.

    Have you done one of these posts for Social Distortion?

  2. I sure did:

    Hmmm....favorite version of Boys on the Docks. I would have to say that it is a tie between the version on Do or Die or the live version on The Singles Collection.

  3. I think that my favorite, non-live, version is the one from Do or Die followed by the one from Mob Mentality.

    Have you done one of these posts for Flogging Molly?

  4. No. I don't believe I have done one of these posts for Flogging Molly.
