About Tessie by Dropkick Murphys

The band that best embodies the spirit of working class Boston has joined with the team that is the soul of the city, as DROPKICK MURPHYS and the Boston Red Sox have given a modern treatment to "Tessie." The song --- originally a Broadway hit --- became the anthem for a growing band of Boston diehards known as the Royal Rooters and helped spur the Red Sox (then known as the Boston Pilgrims) on to a dramatic come-from-behind victory in the first World Series in 1903.

Now, more than 100 years removed from that inaugural World Series, DROPKICK MURPHYS have given the song a facelift at the behest of Red Sox Executive Vice President Dr. Charles Steinberg and Boston Herald beat writer Jeff Horrigan. With the help of Sox center fielder Johnny Damon and pitchers Bronson Arroyo and Lenny Dinardo, the MURPHYS have recorded a new version of the song that is sure to become the rallying cry of Red Sox Nation as the team seeks to end an 85-year championship drought.
