Band Pimping: Bruce Springsteen (Originally published February 5, 2010)


Ok, The Boss doesn’t really need pimping.  He’s a legend.  A gruff, manly legend that sends chills down the spines of 21-year-old blue collar spawn like yours truly.  No song exemplifies his classic rock sincerity quite like “Atlantic City”, a track from my favorite of his albums, Nebraska. Not only is it a simple folksy tune, but it’s got all the killer hooks you’d expect from the bandanna’d one himself.  And it’s nice to think of staying positive even when faced with impossible odds, just like the main character in the song.  Plus, the video’s pretty damn cool, with its black-and-white travelogue through the real Atlantic City, showing it in all its second-rate Vegas glory.
