Credit: Jered Scott

Ska punk legends Goldfinger are returning to our shores soon for this year’s ‘Fireball – Fuelling The Fire Tour’, along with Less Than Jake Save Ferris, and Thieves Of Liberty for what’s sure to be the biggest knees up the UK will see in 2019.

Mike Herrera will be over with Goldfinger so we grabbed a chat with him to find out his Top 6 Drinking Songs and which tipple to enjoy while listening to each.

Please be aware that, whilst this article is about drinking songs, it is important to drink responsibly. You can head to Drink Aware (here) for more information. Oh, and don’t be one of those idiots that drinks and drives.


GOLDFINGER – TIJUANA SUNRISE

Mexico is the place to drink to your heart’s content. But I’ve seen more drunkies in the Mackers after the show all through the UK than anywhere! Hey! I’m right there with ya.

DRINK TO HAVE WHILE LISTENING:
Tequila with lime


MILLENCOLIN – TRUE BREW

This is about much more than drinking but drinking is one of the best parts. Millencolin has written a song that will speak to generations if only they would listen. True Brew will always be my aim.

DRINK TO HAVE WHILE LISTENING:
Shot of Swedish Vodka with a microbrew chaser


KENDRICK LAMAR – SWIMMING POOLS (DRANK)

Who wouldn’t want to skinny dip dive into a swimming pool full of liquor!? Watch those paper cuts!
This song has a way of mesmerising you. Don’t listen while driving, you may get pulled over and tested.

DRINK TO HAVE WHILE LISTENING:
Glass of Hennessy


GRETCHEN WILSON – REDNECK WOMAN

Redneck 101 lessons. This will tell you a thing or 2 about America and it’s all true.
Drink beer in a tavern and put this on the jukebox.

DRINK TO HAVE WHILE LISTENING:
Beer, whiskey, White Claw


SNOOP DOGG – GIN & JUICE

Dare I say this is a classic party song? I’m pretty sure if you bump this anywhere people get happy.

DRINK TO HAVE WHILE LISTENING:
Gin & juice


TUMBLEDOWN – CAME TO FIGHT

A whiskey and beer drinking bar fight song. Take it to the street and make ends meet.

DRINK TO HAVE WHILE LISTENING:
Shot of Jameson with a can of the cheapest beer available
