Boston born-and-bred punks Dropkick Murphys were on the West Coast at the time, but quickly announced a three-pronged fundraising effort. First came the now-sold-out “For Boston” t-shirts. Next up was a benefit concert in their hometown, featuring the likes of Big D & The Kids Table and more.

Today, the Dropkicks finally revealed details of the third prong, and it’s a cool one. The band announced a special digital release that finds them teaming up with the one-and-only Bruce Springsteen for a reworked version of the band’s track “Rose Tattoo.” Also featured on the release will be two live tracks captured from a performance in California days after the bombings. The release is available for $1.29 at iTunes by clicking here. All proceeds benefit the Claddagh Fund.
