Donut Kings have a history of playing and recording "beer songs." Their most popular beer song is the re-make of a re-make of sort''s, the classic "In Heaven There is No Beer" (from 1999''s FAPLUNK.) Another popular tune Finnegan''s Drink (from 1996''s No Evacuation Possible) was a song about a drinking glass kept behind a glass case by one of its famous long dead patrons, Mr. Finnegan. In the song the new patron admires the drinking glass. But in the end he gets his due with his glass being placed next to Finnegans. The name Finnegan was a nod to the classic pub-drinking song Finnegan''s Wake.

Being fond of the barley and hop concoction, the Donut Kings, over the years would eventually play the traditional Finnegan''s Wake song live; especially when they would play Holyoke''s Paper City Brewery on their now famous Friday Night Samplers. The boys eventually decided to record the song proper. Along with it they recorded Gordon Parson''s Pub With No Beer. Most people mistake this for an Irish tune, but it actually was written in Australia. In fact the song was voted #5 on the Best Australian Songs of all time by the Australasian Performing Rights Association (APRA).

Here the Donut Kings take two classic staples and rock them up the way only the Donut Kings can do. Gone is the 3/4 time of Pub With No Beer replaced with a rocked out 4/4 time version giving it a bit of Green Day meets the Dubliners feel. Finnegan''s Wake is Boston style Celtic Punk with distorted guitars along with a traditional 1918 tenor banjo. These are the NEW pub classics...the NEW drinking songs!
