Just three days after the cowardly, disgusting Boston marathon bombings that left three dead and many injured, local punk mainstays Dropkick Murphys announced they have raised $65,000 for the victims and their families.

The Celtic punks are selling t-shirts emblazoned with the words "For Boston" and the city's skyline, with all proceeds going toward those affected by Monday's tragedy. Dropkick Murphys tweeted shirts are still available for pre-order and they're shipping to Europe and Australia as well.

"Boston is a great city," lead singer Ken Casey told Fuse News following the bombing. "We're a resilient, tight knit group and we'll do the best to take care of each other."

They didn't waste time showing the world—and more importantly, those affected by the tragedy—what they meant by that.
