Holy Bruce

Via my brother, an extremely metal, female-vocalled (vocaled? voiced?) cover of Springsteen’s “Born to Run,” the greatest rock and roll song ever written.

    how come everytime you say that born to run is the best rock n roll song ever it sends a cringe up and down my spine? this has been happening since 7th grade.

    because you sold your soul years ago? because you think the best rock and roll was made by foreigners? because you hate freedom?

    “It was 1976, and I was living in Lynwood, Kansas. I was probably 12 or 13 years old, dreaming of a way out, of what the world outside must be like and what my place in it would be – and this song came on the radio, and it just completely changed my life. That song was Born to Run, and it was by a guy named Bruce Springsteen. I was like, “Holy cow, my life suddenly makes sense.” The next day, the mailman brought my parents’ copy of Time and Bruce Springsteen was on the cover. I read the article and that same afternoon went out and bought the album, Born To Run. I didn’t come out of my room for what felt like a year. I just listened to it over and over and over. That album, that song, it did for me what it does for everybody: it grabs you like a rock ‘n’ roll song – the pounding, the feeling, the fire – and it lifts you up and sets you free. I lived in the Midwest, and this was a song about getting free from the place you’re at. I completely related to that. That’s what rock ‘n’ roll is all about.”

    that’s basically what the dude from the gaslight anthem said. springsteen gave him a chance to escape from…new jersey. so he probably understood where bruce was coming from better than most.

    also, i was glad to hear that i wasn’t the only one who learned that sax solo on the guitar. i always thought it reminded me of the theme from tiny toons. haha. no one gets that i’m sure.
