To be filed in the "We liked them before they were cool" folder, Activision Publishing has once again proved how awesome they are by making the wise decision to tap the "green-collar" punk band Dropkick Murphys to perform for the opening night celebrations at 8pm on September 2nd, at the first ever Call of Duty XP, the destination for Call of Duty gamers worldwide.

The critically-acclaimed Dropkick Murphys -- who are known for their complex distillation of classic punk rock, Celtic folk and American rock 'n' roll -- will deliver a knockout live performance to be sure.

Best known for their iconic and hard-hitting style of ballad-punk, their songs I'm Shipping Up To Boston, Tessie, and The Spicy McHaggis Jig stand out as shining examples of their shinning parts.

The two-day Call of Duty fan event features the global premiere of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer, a $1 Million Tournament presented by Xbox 360 and other landmark experiences including these live musical performances. Call of Duty XP will take place September 2nd and 3rd, 2011, in Los Angeles, Calif.

COD3 is set to release on November 8th, 2011.
