Anyone familiar with The Dropkick Murphys knows that the band has deep ties to Boston, with tracks like “Shipping Up to Boston” and “Tessie.” Following Monday’s terror attacks at the Boston Marathon, the band has released a T-shirt to raise funds for the victims of the bombings. The shirt features both the city skyline and the city’s seal with the message, “Thank you, to all who purchased this shirt. All proceeds go to the victims and families of the Boston Marathon bombings. Love, Dropkick Murphys.”

At this point, the shirt, priced from $24.99 to $26.99, has raised more than $100,000 dollars. Head here to order one for yourself.
