St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner (or should we say just over the rainbow?), and SiriusXM is ready. In preparation for Monday, March 17, we’ve got our Kiss Me I’m Irish T-shirts (and just enough Guinness to help us forget the fact that we’re wearing Kiss Me I’m Irish T-shirts), we’re spinning a playlist comprised of U2, Flogging Molly, and Dropkick Murphys, and we’re debating whether or not it would be a terrible idea to order a Shamrock Shake for dessert.
If you’re looking to soundtrack your drunken debauchery, here’s plenty to choose from this year, from The Spectrum‘s St. Paddy’s Day Radio to RockBar’s Hangover Hits and Hair of the Dog Radio. Check it out below.
