Friday Five: St. Patrick’s Day Songs

It’s Friday and it’s St. Patrick’s Day which means time for an Irish themed Friday Five!   While we probably won’t be joining the NYC St. Patrick’s Day parade festivities, we’ll just sit here wearing our green, and quietly wish Disney was playing “Luck Of The Irish” on TV tonight.  We struggled to pick just five songs to put on this list but we let the 4 leaf  clovers to work their magic. Celebrate St. Patrick and bring out your Irish side with these tracks!

NKOTB – “Hanging Tough”
Helloooo!! NKOTB wrote this to be the Boston Celtics theme song and to be Irish, you gotta be hangin’ tough!  On tour, the New Kids sample Dropkick Murphys as well for the intro so double yes!

Flogging Molly – “Drunken Lullabies”
As far as Celtic influenced bands go, Flogging Molly is a tried and true classic.  If you’re looking for something to get yourself in the spirit of the holiday, these guys are top notch!

Dropkick Murphys – “Shipping Up To Boston”
Whether you realize this song is by Dropkick Murphys or not, you have heard this song and we’re pretty sure you love it as much as we do. NKOTB sample this for the “Hanging Tough” intro on tour, athletes use it as their walk up song, and in numerous commercials.  This is the officially unofficial theme song for the city of Boston, MA. We rest our case.

B*Witched – “C’est La Vie”
Arguably one of the most underrated artists from the late 90s and early 2000s, B*Witched are still touring.  Currently, they are on tour in Australia with Atomic Kitten and Liberty X.  We had a hard time picking between “Rollercoaster” and C’est La Vie” but  that’s just life and this is just a classic song!

House Of Pain – “Jump Around” 
It’s Friday, and it’s a holiday.  Go ahead, jump around.  We won’t judge you!  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

NKOTB To Release “Thankful” EP on May 12th

New Kids On The Block Announce Cruise #9 In October 2017

ALL ABOARD!!!  NKOTB just announced cruise #9 will be leaving from New Orleans and sailing to Cozumel, Mexico…far far away from your worries this October!  If you thought the last cruises were insane…just wait because we’re sure NKOTB have new tricks up their sleeves to make Cruise #9 a trip you won’t forget.

This is probably the best vacation a fangirl could ask for – 4 days sailing aboard the Carnival Triumph (2 of which you’re completely trapped at sea with NKOTB), concerts on the boat, theme nights, dance parties, meet&greets ON THE BOAT, a day in Cozumel to explore, and so many more surprises that we can’t even imagine!

In case you missed “Rock The Boat” on PopTV, or just want to get really hyped about this vacation, watch the trailer for the cruise in a tweet from NKOTB below.  Fingers crossed they’ll be filming another season of “Rock The Boat” on board for those who can’t make it!

Past cruisers and BlockNation members get the first pick of cabins on the Carnival Triumph on Thursday, March 2nd starting at 10AM EST.  New Cruisers and general on sales begin Friday, March 3rd at 12 noon EST.  Click HERE to update your Rose Tours Cruise account and make sure you’re ready to #GETONDABOAT!  For more information about what’s included, what’s not, and even how to pack for the cruise, click HERE.

Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, The Starting Line, And More Join “Warped Rewind At Sea”

It’s officially Winter in NYC and we’re already looking forward to next Summer at the Warped Tour with all our favorite bands.  Warped Tour Founder, Kevin Lyman and the Warped Tour Team are giving us an early Christmas present and a second Warped Weekend in 2017 called “Warped Rewind At Sea“!

“Warped Rewind At Sea” is a 5 day cruise from New Orleans to Cozumel, Mexico on the Norwegian Pearl Cruise ship.  Joining the inaugural cruise are 3OH!3, Cartel, Bowling For Soup, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, Less Than Jake, and Reel Big Fish with more artists and fun activities to be announced!  It’s like we were planning our dream tour line up and decided to ship it off to Mexico.  Emo Nite will also be on hand to deliver some serious throwbacks – as if the whole cruise isn’t the best thing since sliced bread.

Grab your passports, swimsuits, sun screen, and your best costumes because “Warped Rewind At Sea” sets sail from New Orleans October 28th -Nov 1st.  Yeah, you get to spend Halloween on a cruise ship with Good Charlotte, 3OH!3, Less Than Jake, and Simple Plan!! We’re not crying, you’re crying!!!   Book now for first choice of staterooms and let’s get warped at sea together!

“Warped Rewind At Sea” is literally our 13 year old fangirl dreams coming to life and we’ve already sent mass texts to book our own stateroom on this boat.  On top of sailing with some of our favorite bands, Kevin Lyman will host a special Q&A session, theme nights and concerts every night by the bands, and there will even be special excursions in Cozumel for cruisers.  You could be playing blackjack, shooting hoops, and even getting wild in the pool with your favorite band on this boat (we’ll try to keep it together for all of us.)

Click HERE for more info on the cruise, what you’ll need to book the best stateroom for you and your squad, as well as updates on the cruise.  Everything from meals to pool and hot tub amenities as well as spa treatments, casinos, sports facilities, and even the concerts on the ship are included in the price so really, this cruise is a steal!!
