Drunken Lullabies is a 2002 album by the Irish-American punk band Flogging Molly. It reached # 157 on the Billboard charts. It has since been certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).


Allmusic gave the album a positive review. The review called the title track a standout and noted its themes of "decrying the ills of modern society" as well as its "breakneck speed." It also referred to the song "Death Valley Queen" as a "dirge of Dylanesque proportions." The reviewer concluded that "After one listen, you'll probably wish you were Irish." In a 4-star review, Punknews.org said that Flogging Molly "sounds authentic" and named “What’s Left Of The Flag," “Rebels Of The Sacred Heart” and “The Rare Ould Times” as the standout tracks.
