Dropkick played at our university's Spring Fling this past semester. It. Was. AWESOME. Of course, most of us were ****-faced, and since we're a Boston University, and we just won the WS in 2007, we were all pretty psyched. I was disappointed that Papelbon didn't fly out to Boston just to dance onstage.
But they did play Tessie, and my ex, the BoSox-hating idiot that he is, didn't get why everyone was freaking out and singing along to a song he didn't know. HA.
I have only seen them once at a gig my friend dragged me to. I was actually glad he did, there was some good stuff there.
Dropkick only played afew songs, but all of the bands that played had CD's or download cards for sale in the foyer.
So I got the DM CD and some download cards for this band called 'the script' and 'the pouges'
'The script' is exellent, they only had one song available for download, so I got that and it is good to play loud. it has one of those rythems that make you turn it up
When I worked the graveyard shift at my old ****ty grocery store job, I had no greater guilty pleasure than driving home at 3am, blasting Iced Earth's "The Coming Curse" as loud as my cheap stereo could handle, and singing to it with windows wide open. Try it yourself, it's invigorating, hah.
Aside from that, metal in general lends itself to high volume levels very well.
