This video is a week old, but it’s just picking up steam thanks to attention from Gawker and others, and it’s always nice to see someone who thinks it’s funny to throw up a Nazi salute get his ass kicked in front of a capacity crowd. The Dropkick Murphys were playing a show at New York City’s Terminal 5 last Thursday, and during a cover of the AC/DC classic “TNT”, one of the dozens of fans on stage unleashed a little “Heil Hitler” action to the crowd (around the 8-minute mark).
Ken Casey, singer and bass player, quickly noticed and went after the dipshit, but the camera man didn’t follow all that well. Fortunately, one fan offered up a description:
“Ken Casey… ran right over to the guy, smashed him in the face, took off his bass and hit him with that and then jumped on him and all out chaos ensued. We could only assume from our vantage point that said nazi got his ass kicked. About 30 seconds later Ken emerged from the pileup with his shirt torn and made his way back to the front of the stage. He strapped on his bass and said into the microphone “Nazis are NOT FUCKING WELCOME at a Dropkick Murphys show.” (Rocks Off)
There’s really nothing like a good, old-fashioned story about a rock band’s singer kicking the crap out of some shithead in the crowd, because they’re few and far between these days. Well, unless Rihanna’s sitting front row at a Chris Brown show, and then it’s just par for the course.
