Heading to Feis ATL or the Celtic Rose Feis in Georgia this weekend? Or maybe you’re hitting up the Western US Oireachtas in California? Or maybe even the New England Oireachtas in Rhode Island.

No matter your competitive destination this weekend, we want to share four tunes you should add to your own playlist before lacing up and taking the stage. And in light of the New England qualifiers this weekend, we figured, why not make them our favorite tunes from Massachusetts-based Dropkick Murphys. Best of luck to all competitors and be sure to come back and share your results with us!

“Going Out In Style” – Dropkick Murphys
It’s funny, fast and will get your energy level high.
