NEW SINGLE: FINNEGAN’S HELL RELEASE ‘One Finger Salute’

Swedish Celtic-Punks Finnegan’s Hell are back again with a new single, the title track from their upcoming (November 25th) new album and we’re happy to report they have all the same swagger, intensity and attitude as before. 

 

Finnegan’s Hell used the shutdown during the pandemic to write a whole new set of big new songs. The best of these bunch will see the light of day on One Finger Salute and first up is the title track along with accompanying music video. ‘One Finger Salute’ is a magnificent marker – a musical middle finger with an infectious chorus sure to evoke a sea of audience middle fingers! Finnegan’s Hell are not about inventing the wheel but what they are about is taking Celtic-Punk and wringing every single bit of fun out of it. They continue on from last album Work Is The Curse Of The Drinking Class (#3 Celtic-Punk album of 2020) in top form sounding somewhere between The Pogues and fellow Scandinavians Greenland Whalefishers and it is catchy beyond words and infectiously so too. Anyone who has ever lived with a monster will recognise the theme of the song and on this evidence someone will have to set a new place at the Celtic-Punk top table!

The idea behind the video for the single is to contrast Metallica’s valium-scented ‘Nothing Else Matters’ and shows a band on speed in the studio. It also provides a unique insight into how Finnegan’s Hell interacts with their producer. The images are taken from an upcoming documentary about the band.

Produced and directed by Michael Ek

I have tried to love you   
Swear to God I’ve done my best 
No matter how I’ve tried 
I just don’t seem to pass the test 
I’ve been blind a long time 
But these days I can see 
That you’re a rotten apple 
From a rotten family tree 
▪️ 
Fuck you 
Fuck your brother 
Fuck your sis 
Your mom and daddy too 
▪️
Sure I like a challenge 
But lovin’ you was tough 
Hardest thing I’ve ever done 
Even though I like it rough 
Your love was like a hammer 
Designed to knock me down 
But you can’t swing it any more 
My queen you’ve lost your crown 
▪️
The more I think about it 
I really hate your guts 
I cannot stand your morals 
Your bigotry drives me nuts 
Take a look in the mirror 
There ain’t nothin’ there to see 
But a rotten apple from a rotten family tree
