St. Patrick’s Day: Celebrate your Irish heritage (real or imagined) with SiriusXM

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner (or should we say just over the rainbow?), and SiriusXM is your metaphorical pot of (music) gold. In preparation for Thursday, 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, Dropkick Murphys among other foot-stompin’ artists. Plus, we’re debating over how many Shamrock Shakes to order for dessert.

If you’re looking to soundtrack your day of drunken debauchery, there’s plenty to choose from this year, from The Spectrum‘s St. Paddy’s Day Radio to Faction’s Green Puke Irish punk special. Check it out below:
