The name of the band comes from their formation days in the early 90s when they played a regular Monday spot at Molly Malone's, with King stating, "we used to play there every Monday night and we felt like we were flogging it to death, so we called the band Flogging Molly." So, no you can't ask the band members for any pills, they don’t have any, probably. The have so far produced six studio albums: Swagger, Drunken Lullabies, Within a Mile of Home, Float, Speed of Darkness, and Life Is Good.
