The Horror Honeys: Revenge Wednesday Jam ~ 'Boys from the County Hell'

Revenge Wednesday Jam ~ 'Boys from the County Hell'

I recall we took care of him one Sunday
We got him out the back and we broke his fucking balls
And maybe that was dreaming and maybe that was real
But all I know is I left that place without a penny or fuck all
And now I've the most charming of verandas
I sit and watch the junkies, the drunks and pimps and whores
Five green bottles sitting on the floor
And I wish to Christ, I wish to Christ
That I had fifteen more

Do you consider yourself a fan of Flogging Molly? Then you sure as hell better like The Pogues, because without them, there would be no Flogging Molly. Utterly crass, totally lacking in tact, and often seeming like little more than a bunch of mates having a pint and a song at the bar, The Pogues are one of the most enduring rock bands to come out of Ireland. (And yes, I prefer them to U2 by leaps and bounds). Songs like "Boys from the County Hell," today's Revenge Jam, are fairly twisted, but damn if they aren't a lot of fun. So grab a Guiness and raise your fist, it's revenge time! ~RH
