Flashback Lunch: Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Butt

|

One of the most impressive things about Bruce Springsteen‘s Super Bowl Half Time show was that he pulled it off without hypnotizing the audience with his butt. It might be hard for young people to understand, but there was a time when Bruce Springsteen’s greatest weapon was not his conviction or his energy—it was his butt. Born In The USA has sold three times as many copies as any other Springsteen album, and you want to know why? It’s because he put his butt on the cover instead of his face. Anyone at his label who thought it was absurd tp put the Boss’s butt in front of the American flag clearly hadn’t seen Bruce Springsteen’s butt. That butt made you proud to be an American.
