FTW!

A lotta people of our generation don't like him. Friend of mine spits venom b/c she doesn't like his voice (yet she likes Bob Dylan. Go figure).
His music isn't exactly my alley and I don't own any of his records, but Born In the USA's been a staple on my mp3 player for 6 years now Smile
I agree with everything Joe said here.

This further solidifies why Joe Strummer is awesome.

I don't really like Bruce's voice either...yet I love Joe, Dylan and about every other guy that can't sing. I really can't say why. Didn't really like his Clash/Strummer covers either.

Think you had to be there. Wasn't at glastonbury for coma girl but was at hyde park for London Calling and although most Bruce fans were probably expecting it, it was an amazing moment when the song started up.

Born in the USA has some of my favourite Springsteen songs on it, but I generally dislike the album, because it sounds so dated. In fact, no other Springsteen records sounds as dated to me (it's the synth that does it).

In case you like Brian playing accosutic, have you given 'Nebraska' a try?
