Irish Punk Bands

| by Emily Smith

Irish punk is known for its mixture of punk rock and traditional Celtic music. The movement began in London in the 80s with The Pogues and has continued since. Irish punk can include instruments like the bagpipes, fiddle, banjo or tin whistle and often explores themes like politics, culture, drinking and working class pride.
