Bruce Springsteen’s Born To Run is 40 years old today, and we’re all celebrating the best way we know how. In Stereogum’s case, we ran a thoughtful essay about the album’s impact. Superchunk frontman Mac McCaughan, meanwhile, dredged up an old live recording of his band’s triumphant “Born To Run” cover. Some details via SoundCloud:
In 2000 Superchunk toured w And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead… and Crooked Fingers & we covered Born To Run at the end of the show w everyone onstage, incl Eric Bachmann as Clarence…i think this is from the Echo Lounge in ATL
Bachmann absolutely smashed that Clarence Clemons sax solo. Hear the whole rad bootleg below.
