"The Boys Are Back In Town (Live)" is a song by Thin Lizzy which was inspired by Thin Lizzy's fans. The group wrote it after noticing that their shows were full of working-class guys looking to get out and have some fun. Their fans also had a tendency to drink heavily.

This gave Thin Lizzy worldwide exposure. They were popular in their native Ireland, but unknown elsewhere until this came out.

This was Thin Lizzy's only Top-40 hit in the US, but they had several other hits in the UK.

Everclear covered this for the 1999 film Detroit Rock City. Their version was later used in the movie A Knight's Tale. (thanks, Tom - Trowbridge, England)

This was used in commercials for Wrangler. (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France)
