About this song: I'm Shipping Up To Boston

This was a breakthrough song for the Dropkicks. Speaking with Songfacts about this song in a 2010 interview Matt Kelly said: "That song was instrumental in making us very popular in our own backyards. We've been touring since '96, and we've done Warped Tour shows around the country, playing festivals over in Europe and some big shows all around the world. But in Boston, they're like 'Dropkick what?' Like 'What the hell's that?' And I think being involved in The Departed definitely helped put us on the map and, for better or for worse, legitimized our band in Boston."
