If you are truly a fan of Irish music, you should listen to U2. Even though U2 has become popular around the globe, they are an Irish Rock band that started in Dublin.

Two major hit songs that should be on your Irish playlist are “With or Without You” and “Sunday Bloody Sunday”. “With or Without You” came out in 19887 and peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 1. “Sunday Bloody Sunday” has a little bit of history behind it. U2 wrote this song in protest of the 1972 Easter Sunday Bloody Shooting in Northern Ireland. The story is that 26 unarmed peaceful protestors were shot by British soldiers. It’s great how U2 brought this tragic event to light in song.
“Whiskey In The Jar” – Metallica
Metallica put their own spin on the classic Irish song, “Whiskey In The Jar”. The song is about a man who is betrayed by his lover. Metallica released their version of the song in 1998.
