'Don't Shut 'Em Down' is an upbeat, slightly ska-ish rocker with a message. It (and the album it is from) tackles the subject of the current economic crisis facing the US and the world. The subject matter is depressing but the lyrics are hopeful and the music is energetic. If you don't listen to closely to what is being sung, this tune will put a smile on your face and set your toes a tapping. Flogging Molly is a socially and politically aware band that reminds me a bit of Midnight Oil, with both Irish and American roots.

Their website goes into more depth about what Speed Of Darkness and the band is all about. If you find this track at all appealing, check out the samples for the rest of the album. It has the potential to resonate with a lot of the disillusioned American middle and lower class who are finding times tough right now.

Part of why I like listening to Flogging Molly is the spirit that they seem to bring in their other abums, whether in the delightful irreverence of "drunken lullabies" or the raucous dance party that is "Swagger". The energy they bring in those albums is awesome and you can't help but get caught up in it.

This album doesn't have that, and I do hope they manage to get whatever they had back, because Within a Mile of Home was pretty good and I'd hate to see them fade away already.

Got it as a freebie, prefer some of their other songs but good to know it's not all pirate music.

This song is okay. I don't really listen to them, but it's not a bad song. Just not my taste.

Flogging Molly. I love this album and listen to it frequently. It may be the only album in recent memory I listen through instead of on shuffle in a playlist.

These guys ( and gal) are one of my favorite bands. This song doesn't disappoint. If you like bands like Drop Kick Murphys, the Pogues- you'll dig this band.
