with a name like AssWorks and an image from some of the lamer rock concerts of the year, it's kinda hard to take ya serious. Bruce is a legend. Listen to "The River." Listen to "Nebraska." Listen to "Darkness." If you are 14 years old or younger, you are forgiven, othwerise, do some homework.

Not a Bruce fan myself. but where is the excitement in going to a show where you know what the setlist is gonna be?

Word to Costaben. I'd say the comments were fueled by a desire to seem "different" or "not trendy" but you can find negative comments probably on the JamBase advertisements for job hirings (I haven't looked). I swear. Sticking your finger in an electrical socket would be a better use of your time than making sure we all know you don't like a musician. If you can't support your pro or con statement with something beneficial to the JamBase family, you're gonna get a cyber noogie (that's what this is) from your brother or sister.

The Boss knows how to write songs that echo the common person's experiences - maybe not mine or yours, but someone out there totally identifies with **insert Springsteen song**. And the man can belt like a leather tanner.

As a native of Asbury Park, NJ, I can tell you that Bruce's music means "home" to me. I still listen to Bruce (the "Wild/Innocent" album in particular) when I get homesick out here in Colorado.

Songs like "Incident on 57th Street," "E Street Shuffle," "New York City Serenade" and "Kitty's Back" still hold up after all these years, not to mention the sheer force of "Rosalita" (if you can't get off on the build up to "the record company, Rosie, just gave me a big advance" lyric, I feel sorry for you).

This isn't even taking the genius of The River, Darkness on the Edge of Town, Greetings from Asbury Park, or Born to Run albums into account.

Like him or not, Bruce Springsteen is Americana rock royalty. YMMV, and that's ok, because music is art and everyone has a different reaction to art, regardless of medium.

It just feels like people bash Bruce because they "don't get it" or think of him in the "Born in the USA" era. That seems foolish to me.

Driving rhythm + powerful lyrics + genuine social conscience + no rock star poser BS = SPRINGSTEEN.

What more can you ask of an artist?

The Boss has genuine fun on stage, if that's what you mean by corny. I don't really worry about my favorite musicians' ability to speak poetry to the crowd. Say what you say, play what you play. He looked like he was having a blast at the Super Bowl. Good for him
