There’s something ultimately cool when you see your favorite bands getting shout outs in places you never expected. Such is the case for Flogging Molly, who have acknowledged their recent mention in the horror master Stephen King’s latest novel, “Holly.”

The band shared the name drop via their social media, noting, “Happy Halloween!!!!! In keeping up with the season, we’d like to acknowledge that the master himself @StephenKing just included us in his latest book ‘Holly!’”

So where and how did the band get name dropped? As viewed below, the mention comes on page 350 with the context being one character thinking about their demise and leaving another character specific instructions on how things should be handled. “Olivia left complete instructions with Marie after her last bout with A-fib, right down to the music she wanted played,” wrote King, noting, “Flogging Molly’s ‘If I Ever Leave This World Alive’ at the start; ‘Spirit in the Sky,’ by Norman Greenbaum at the end.”

Flogging Molly, “If I Ever Leave This World Alive”

Flogging Molly, “If I Ever Leave This World Alive” Lyrics

If I ever leave this world alive
I’ll thank for all the things you did in my life
If I ever leave this world alive
I’ll come back down and sit beside your feet tonight
Wherever I am, you’ll always be
More than just a memory
If I ever leave this world alive
If I ever leave this world alive
I’ll take on all the sadness that I left behind
If I ever leave this world alive
The madness that you feel will soon subside
So, in a word, don’t shed a tear
I’ll be here when it all gets weird
If I ever leave this world alive
So when in doubt, just call my name
Just before you go insane
If I ever leave this world, hey, I may never leave this world
But if I ever leave this world alive
She says I’m okay, I’m alright
Though you have gone from my life
You said that it would
Now everything should be all right
She says I’m okay, I’m alright
Though you have gone from my life
You said that it would
Now everything should be all right
