The Wrestler Trailer Includes Springsteen’s Song Of The Same Name

Because the Boss is all about manly sports these days, the trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler features a broken-faced (and spirited) Mickey Rourke with really bad hair, Marisa Tomei as the stripper with a heart of gold, Evan Rachel Wood as the estranged daughter, and a sad sad new Springsteen song. Outside the soundtrack,… More »

Springsteen Debuts Tune During NFL Halftime, Announces New Album

Sort of. If you recall, Bruce already did a version of “Working On A Dream” while stumping on the campaign trail in Ohio. This, though, is the first time the studio version was played alongside NFL highlights and made to look like Dire Straits’ “Walk Of Life” video. It showed up, in this snippet form,… More »

New Bruce Springsteen – “Working On A Dream” (Live In Ohio)

Last week Bruce Springsteen got in the Halloween spirit and spent “A Night With The Jersey Devil.” Yesterday, feeling election day inch closer, he spent an afternoon at a Barack Obama rally in Cleveland. He played a six-song set that included the debut of a new one, “Working On A Dream,” on which he wa… More »

New Bruce Springsteen – “A Night With The Jersey Devil”

Who knew Bruce was so into Halloween? Earlier this week we learned that the Springsteens’ haunted mansion in Rumson has become so popular they had to cancel the festivities this year. He is making it up to us, though. Today the Boss posted a free Halloween song and video on his site. “If you grew… More »

Springsteen Cancels Halloween

Sorry, kids. The Boss has announced on his website that the annual Halloween decoration of his New Jersey mansion is canceled due to “catastrophic success” (i.e., too many people were coming by). You’ll have to Trick Or Sign My Nebraska LP at Little Steven’s from now on. More »

Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel Duet For Obama

Last night NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom hosted a “Change Rocks” fundraiser for Obama, featuring Class of ’99 Rock Hall inductees the Boss and the Piano Man. Some tickets were priced at $25,000 each (preempting the World Series isn’t cheap). Springsteen has of course played a number of rallies for the senator, but this was Joel’s first… More »

Bruce Springsteen Stumps And Strums For Obama In The Streets Of Philadelphia

Pennsylvania wasn’t the only battleground state the Boss visited this weekend in service of his chosen candidate (he also hit Columbus, OH on Sunday), but it was particularly poetic seeing a massive crowd take to Philly’s Ben Franklin Parkway to hear him get political on Saturday. It was part of a mini-swing of performances Bruce… More »

Springsteen Headlining Super Bowl XLIII Halftime Show

Springsteen and the E Street Band are set for Tampa on 2/1 and hopefully there are no wardrobe malfunctions or penis-shaped guitar (or saxophone, Clarence) shadows. Should be triumphant. Read more at NFL.com. More »

New Salem Video – “Dirt”

Mysterious Chicago/Michigan/New York crew Salem remind me of the Cocteau Twins hijacking Royal Trux’s early junkie vibe and some thick, distorted electronic percussion then performing at a Dash Snow opening. Or whatever. The band-directed low-lit video for “Dirt,” from their Yes, I Smoke Crack EP, finds a woman locking herself in a garage with the… More »

Springsteen, Liars, Spiritualized, Grinderman, And Others Cover Suicide

Alan Vega and Martin Rev, aka dark lo-fi electro-duo Suicide, were amazing in their heyday, especially when you consider they formed in 1971, pre-dating and influencing a shit-load of post-punk, noise, no wave, synth-pop, and industrial acts that followed. (If you don’t have their self-titled 1977 or 1980 albums, pick them up or, for now,… More »

Stipe Geeks Out Around The Boss, Buck Learns “Born To Run”

In 2004, R.E.M. and Bruce Springsteen took part in the Vote For Change tour, along with the Dixie Chicks, DMB, Jackson Browne, Pearl Jam, etc., to inspire folks to vote against George W. Bush. It didn’t work, obviously, but four years later we stumbled upon footage of the R.E.M. guys practicing for their performances with… More »

New Japan For Africa Video – “We Are The World”

“We Are The World” is in the air. We caught a pretty good whiff of it with Jimmy and Ben, but this footage from Japanese television takes USA For Africa to the next level. In fact, the footage you’re about to see is so true-to-life that it got us thinking about a post we did… More »

2008 Grammys Winners List

Breathe a sigh of relief, Christopher Cross. Newly soberish Amy Winehouse was Hancock-blocked (sorry) from sweeping the big four categories at tonight’s Grammys when Herbie inexplicably picked up Best Album honors. Wino did have a huge night via satellite, though: five awards in all.

We’re shocked too!

Kanye and Bruce each… More »

New Bruce Springsteen Video – “Girls In Their Summer Clothes”

A Jersey shore troubadour, through and through. With a mix of camera filters, diners, and girls of all shapes and sizes, the Boss manages a touching tribute to summers at the beach and the endless poetry his love for NJ inspires. Nobody does nostalgia like this anymore.

Still sorta surprised at… More »

When Butler Met Bruce

One of the finest treats of the past few months was watching that shaky footage of Win and Régine joining Bruce & the E Streeters up in Ottawa. In hindsight that collab has an air of inevitability about it (as does the Fire’s time with Bowie, Byrne et al), but if you had to pinpoint… More »

Who’s The Boss Listening To?

We showed Against Me! some wine-drenched love a ways back and got mostly grief for it. First comment: “This is absolute dog shit.” Sigh. If only Bruce Springsteen were a regular Stereogum commenter! We recently mentioned everyone covering the Boss, but ever wonder what current bands he might like to cover? Well, besides Against Me!,… More »

Everyone Covers Springsteen

No shortage of Bruce love ever, really. Recently, Jesse Malin and Arcade Fire wrangled the Boss for cameos. But even when Springsteen’s not in promo-mode, we always seem to be listening to his music.

April had that all-star live tribute and Ted Leo gave us a rockin’ “Dancing In The Dark” at the Callum… More »

Bruce Springsteen Covers Arcade Fire, Joined By Win Butler & Régine Chassagne In Ontario 10/14/07

Yes, this really happened. Remember when you first heard “Keep The Car Running” and thought, “That’s the best Bruce Springsteen song not written by Bruce Springsteen”? Apparently so did the Boss! A few hours ago, Bruce & the E Street Band played Ontario’s Scotiabank Place, and reader Michael Schwartz dropped us a line soon after… More »

Video Hangover: Artists United Against Apartheid – “Sun City”

Every week, we dig in the archives for videos that we find noteworthy, memorable, or just unbelievably stupid. And then, Jon McMillan breaks ‘em down for you. This week: a young Silvio Dante and friends fight the power — and win. More »
