The Dropkick Murphys Upstage Nicholson

Brian Raftery / October 12, 2006

We had several questions after watching The Departed this weekend: Is Mark Wahlberg wearing a wig, or just going bald in some groundbreakingly terrible new way? Was Jack Nicholson even aware that he was making a movie, or did Scorsese just happen to capture his dildo-wielding, maniacally cackling everyday behavior? And is just us, or is the movie’s unofficial theme song–the Dropkick Murphys’ “I’m Shipping Up To Boston”– one of the best “shit’s going down” tracks we’ve ever heard?

UPDATE: Due to a typing error, “dildo-wielding” was misspelled as “dildo-welding.” Idolator regrets the error–in so many, many ways.
