Dropkick Murphys’ Comment About Papelbon Taken Out of Context

Jonathan Papelbon

With the departure of closer Jonathan Papelbon to the Philadelphia Phillies after last season, we here in Boston assumed Pap’ would take everything with him.

Ken Casey, the frontman of Boston’s own Dropkick Murphys, reportedly told ESPN Music that he does not want the former Sox closer to use their song, “Shipping up to Boston” for his bullpen music anymore.

“He can’t use ‘Shipping Up To Boston,’” Casey said. “That’s a Boston song. One of the Philadelphia radio guys suggested ‘Johnny I Hardly Knew Ya.’”

Well apparently, this quote was taken the wrong way.

The Murphys issued a statement via Facebook minutes ago about the situation:

What’s this we hear about us telling Papelbon he can’t use Shipping Up To Boston as his entry song? We would never do that! It was a joke, people!

There you have it. Straight from the band. It was all in good fun. The matter is now closed.

Other Suggestions for Awesome Bullpen Music

  • “For Whom the Bell Tolls” – Metallica
  • “Walk” – Pantera
  • “War” – Vince DiCola
  • “L’estasi dell’oro” – Ennio Morricone
  • “Run to the Hills” – Iron Maiden
  • “Imperial March” – John Williams
