The 17 Best Irish Bands and Solo Artists Ever

Some people like to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by throwing on a “Kiss me, I’m Irish!” t-shirt and trying to merge the worlds of Guinness beer and Guinness Book of World Records by downing more beer than any other human on the planet. But if that idea doesn’t ring your particular set of chimes, don’t fret — there are plenty other ways to enjoy the day.

If you instead prefer to honor the Emerald Isle in a more artistic fashion, how about spending some time with 17 of Ireland’s mightiest musical exports? In the gallery above, we spotlight a hearty batch ranging from first-gen punk pioneers to cutting-edge indie-pop acts who made their mark both at home and abroad. Oh, and if you still want to go for that Guinness idea, it’s not like rock music and inebriation are mutually exclusive concepts.
