Bruce Springsteen has a new album called High Hopes coming out early next year, and it’s a sort of odds-and-ends project, albeit a fascinating one.

Bruce Springsteen – “Dream Baby Dream” (Suicide Cover) Video

One of the coolest fun facts about Bruce Springsteen: He was an early fan and patron of the New York electro-punk duo Suicide, and he’s covered their devotional hymn “Dream Baby Dream” many times over the years.

Bruce Springsteen Albums From Worst To Best

As I began the writing, listening, and reading for this list, I started to think about a weird quality of Bruce Springsteen’s catalogue that I hadn’t previously considered. For someone I’ve grown up knowing as an already well-established icon, it’s surprising to look at his body of work and realize the bizarre patterns within: it’… More »

Watch Patrick Stickles & Diarrhea Planet Cover “Born To Run”

Earlier this month, the charmingly monikered triple-guitar Nashville punk monster Diarrhea Planet played at the Brooklyn DIY venue Shea Stadium.

Craftwerk: The 10 Weirdest Bruce Springsteen Crafts On The Web

When it began, early Bruce was an exotic figure — young and feral, with a wild mop of hair, a scraggly sailor’s beard and a fearsome, frenetic intensity.

Watch Divine Fits Cover Springsteen’s “Hungry Heart”

Bruce Springsteen’s “Hungry Heart” is one of those songs that will continue to turn arenas into pits of ecstasy until long after we’re all dead.
