The Best of the Pogues is a 1991 Greatest Hits compilation album by The Pogues.
The Pogues emerged out of the London punk scene in 1982 with a fusion of punk and traditional Irish music. The synthesis worked.
But what set the band apart was the lyrical brilliance of front man Shane MacGowan. His voice sounded like it had risen out of some holy gutter, and he displayed an emotional range that could make the most delicate ballad or the rawest stomper unforgettable.
