Finnegan’s Hell


Celtic Punk • Boston Punk • Folk Punk • Folk Rock


Finnegan’s Hell has spawned a new subgenre within Celtic punk and folk rock by adding influences from hard rock, hillbilly country and Swedish folk.

What the press has labeled “The New Wave Of Swedish Celtic Punk”, takes no prisoners. With the focus on great melodies and sing-alongs, Finnegan’s Hell has outdone themselves on their third full-lenght album. “Work Is The Curse Of The Drinking Class” has all the features of a classic album – this is a contemporary alternative to “If I Should Fall From Grace With God” by The Pogues



“They’re hard to describe, but just imagine a blend of Metallica and The Kilfenora Ceilí Band and you’d be about right.” The Irish Times

“These Swedes have a solid grasp of the Celtic punk idiom and are able to use stomping folk melodies and traditional instrumentation to reveal, and revel in, the gnarlier side of life.”Vive Le Rock (UK)

“Finnegan’s Hell sure knows how to write songs about alcohol that make you wanna drink.” – GAFFA (Sweden)

“All the things that make Celtic punk so fun are on display here: great lyrics, loud guitars, folk instruments and gang vocals. The band displays a master’s degree in composing likable punk tales, told with fire and fury.” Folk-Metal (Netherlands)
