New striking strokes

Band: FLOGGING MOLLY
Who: Irish-American seven-piece Celtic
punk team formed in Los Angeles in 1997 / 6 albums so far.
To celebrate this year’s Irish traditional Saint Patrick’s Day (17 March/
the Celtic L.A. team wrote this festive earworm that invites you to well…

As I’m tripping up the stairs
To an empty room left haunted
By a ghost who once lived there
Now I’m tripping up the stairs
