''Sing Loud, Sing Proud!'' is the third studio album from Boston punk rock band the Dropkick Murphys. Before the album's release in 2001, guitarist Rick Barton left the band. He announced James Lynch of Boston punk band The Ducky Boys as his successor. As well as Lynch, the band also recruited then 17-year-old Marc "The Kid" Orrell on lead guitar (he is also a self-taught accordionist). The band also recruited a full-time piper, Robbie Mederios (better known as Spicy McHaggis), and Ryan Foltz on mandolin and tin whistle.
The album features collaborations with Shane MacGowan, vocalist of The Pogues, and Colin McFaull of Cock Sparrer and an updated version of the old Murphys classic "Caps And Bottles". In addition, it includes covers of Irish folk classics, "The Rocky Road to Dublin" and "The Wild Rover", as well as a rendition of the Boston College fight song, "For Boston". The band released music videos for "The Spicy McHaggis Jig", "The Gauntlet" and "The Wild Rover". - Wikipedia
