Bruce Springsteen's "Born In The USA" Turns 35 Today

One of the most iconic albums of the 80's came out 35 years ago today. Bruce Springsteen's 7th studio album, "Born In The USA," was released on June 4, 1984. Promoted with a massive worldwide tour, it debuted at number nine on the Billboard charts during the week of June 23, 1984, and after two weeks, it reached the top of the chart on July 7, staying at number one for seven weeks; it remained on the chart for one hundred forty three weeks becoming the best selling album of 1985. Seven singles became top ten hits, "Dancing In The Dark," "Cover Me," "Born In The USA," "I'm On Fire," "Glory Days," "I'm Goin' Down," and "My Hometown."

While some die hard fans thought it was, "too commercial," Springsteen said β€œIt went as far in the direction of pop music as I wanted to go β€” and probably a little farther.” Yet every single track channels regret, fear, pain, loss, aging, and/or frustration β€” in its lyrics.

Bruce has said he's getting The E Street Band back together for a new album and tour in 2020. Maybe another Summer date at Gillette?
