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 performance… 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 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 aMore »

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 took home an armful… 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 Bruce being shut out… 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, beside… 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"… 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 »

Premature Evaluation: Bruce Springsteen – Magic

Now that we've all had a chance to stream Bruce's new one, let's get down to it: There is something Magic about Springsteen when he teams with the E Street Band. There's been plenty of magic when he goes it alone (see Nebraska, etc.), but on the other side of things, for… More »

New Bruce Springsteen Video – “Long Walk Home” (& Magic Stream)

Yes indeed, the Boss is back (the Jersey boy in us just shed a tear). Hard to believe Springsteen's on his fifteenth studio album, so if you're feeling nostalgic you can either drop a pretty penny on a Born To Run test pressing or buck up and -- amid the promo blitz -- watch… More »

Bruce Springsteen eBay Rarity

Saving up your milk money? Well, on the cusp of Magic, Bruce Springsteen & The E(bay) Street Band's first straight-to-wax set in five years, why not invest in a rare version of Born To Run, arguably the group's best? The Chicago-based eBay seller's pretty excited about the whole thing: "I have been selling on eBay… More »

Bettye LaVette Covers Bruce Springsteen

Never got around to collectively scratching our skulls over Janet Reno's patriotic foray into album curation, but better late than never, so here's the windup: Our nation's former Attorney General has assembled a music comp, spanning three discs and 50 songs, telling the story of this great land through the collected works of folks like… More »

New Bruce Springsteen Video – “Radio Nowhere”

After the good deed done by the Boss man (offering up the first single from the forthcoming Magic as a limited-time free download), Mr. Springsteen evens it all out by premiering the track's clip via Amazon's horrendous media player. But hey, it's just a click away and free of charge, so our complaints remai… More »

New Bruce Springsteen – “Radio Nowhere”

The Boss man's back indeed. "Radio Nowhere" is the lead single from this fall's Magic LP, and it's a dusty, Zevon-shaded guitar burner, one of those top-down-and-the-stereo-blarin' types, fit for night drives with your gotta-get-outta-this-town friends. "Is there anybody out there? ... I just wanna hear some rhythm ... This is radio nowhere." And it'… More »
