hah-definitely not a troll-dead serious...and u want to give this guy a medal for making music for 50 years go ahead........might as well give every other musician on earth over the age of 65 one as well. Bottom line is that the guys a hack and writes terrible songs. If you are a serious fan then there's a great chance you are a boner...

9:32 - And yet, you still dutifully follow around every article in which he is mentioned and piss and moan about how terrible he is.

I say this as someone who isn't even a fan of Bruce. If I don't like something, I don't waste my time whining about how I can't understand how anybody could like it, I just don't bother commenting or listening. Pretty simple, no?

Bruce is awesome. Grimes is the Pits.

fyi summer wind was not part of the setlist, it was played over the PA as the band walked on

Bruce the legend putting the kids to shame. Dude is old as the hills, still making kick-ass music, still performing 3+ hours EVERY SHOW... Imagine having the back catalog where you can do a three hour show and STILL have fans saying you left shit out.

Basically if you don't respect Bruce you know nothing about Rock and Roll.

Fans of Bruce Springsteen generally do not like music other than Bruce Springsteen. Meaning that Bruce is that good, and they have been spoiled by his art? Uh, no ... meaning that Bruce fills their "music" spot on their life checklist the same way that new MBA grads study up on one sports team in order to be able to sound convincing when discussing sports with clients.

Springteen is music for people that otherwise have no opinion about music.

This is perhaps the stupidest thing that's ever been posted on the internet.

"Springteen is music for people that otherwise have no opinion about music."

Truer words have not been spoken, ever. If you think otherwise get over being called out and go listen to some actual music. Ask your kids, or some of the paralegals as your firm what they are listening to.

You're welcome.

I am 12:19, and that was the first comment on made on the site today genius. But yeah, we're all the same person.

Thanks for proving my point - Springsteen fans are fucking imbeciles without a clue.

Ass, gas, or grass, no one rides for free. Bruuuuuuuuuce is a rock-n-roll cocksman! I measure a man by his poontang intake. I leave the rest to those who live in Brooklyn.

lulz at the idiots who follow Bruce around so they can watch him fart dust.

Posted by Anonymous | September 20, 2012 3:37 PM

AGREED! Bruce got laid like crazy for decades. Even now he's still trapping strange. You don't stay in that kind of shape for guys like me. A very underrated cocksman. Asa Akira - VA VA VOOM!
