Details Release Date: Jun 10, 2003; Lead Performance: Dropkick Murphys

If someone made a guy flick about a bunch of close-knit, good-hearted, working-class fellas, Blackout could be the soundtrack. Beantown's Dropkick Murphys have jammed this 14-track CD (a bonus disc contains two live cuts and a video) with disheveled, rambunctious, Celtic-tinged punk rock teeming with raggedy, sweaty earnestness. With themes ranging from blue-collar exploitation (''Worker's Song'') to, um, love (''Kiss Me I'm #!@*faced,'' which has urchinlike charm), the album is like a rawer, truer ''The Brothers McMullen.''
