Irish folk band The Dubliners formed in 1962. Their take on traditional Irish music has influenced bands like Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly. Their song "Seven Drunken Nights" sold 250,000 copies in the UK. In 2012, they celebrated their 50th anniversary, which saw them named as Ireland's longest surviving musical act. They announced their retirement in 2012. Surviving members of the band currently tour under the name The Dublin Legends.
