Freakin’ Weekend: Thin Lizzy – Whiskey in the Jar



Thin Lizzy are often overlooked as not only being awesome, but being an awesome Irish band. While the band wasn’t necessarily fond of their cover of this traditional Irish song, it got them to the top of the Irish charts in 1972, and more importantly in front of a lot of listeners. Thus planting the seeds for the success of their careers. St. Patty’s Day doesn’t have to be all about bagpipes and fiddles, some time a good rock band’s all that’s needed. Sláinte! It’s the Freakin’ Weekend.
