Earlier this summer, Baltimore governor and possible 2016 presidential candidate Martin O’Malley played a concert with his Celtic Rock band O’Malley’s March. At the show, held in Germantown, Maryland, the Irish American O’Malley discussed a recent trip to Ireland.
But then O’Malley went all New Jersey on the crowd. That’s when things got interesting.
One of the songs O’Malley performed that night was an angry, Celtic-infused Bruce Springsteen song called “Death to My Hometown.”
