Continuing our series of classic songs covered, today we survey a collection of fuel-injected takes on Bruce Springsteen’s legendary “Born to Run.”
“This Is American Music” – a music collective featuring Grand Champeen, Two Cow Garage, The Drams, and Glossary – kick us off, followed by Butch Walker, the Smoking Popes, Cowboy Mouth, Melissa Etheridge, Alkaline Trio, the Fray, Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Jeffrey Gaines & John Monnecka. We close it out with Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel trading verses during last year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th Anniversary Concert.
I’ve got my favorite, what is yours?
