Mighty Mighty Bosstones – Rascal King

This ska band is probably singing about politician James Michael Curley, Boston Mayor and Massachusetts Governor during the first few decades of the 20th Century. A “hero or a hooligan?” the band asks, given his popularity, yet affinity for corruption with Irish mob ties. Charisma in politicians can sometimes whitewash over whether that individual should govern.

It’s a 1997 song for this Boston-based group.
