Dropkick Murphys Worker's Song is our pre-May Day, pre-Feast of St. Joseph the Worker traditio. It is dedicated to the executives at Goldman Sachs and all those who don't "get" the common good. "By the common good is meant the sum total of those conditions of social life which allow people as groups and as individuals to reach their proper fulfillment" (Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, par. 407).
