From his blue collar roots in New Jersey, Bruce Springsteen forged a level of critical and commercial success almost unprecedented in the seventies; his album Born in the USA went on to sell 30 million copies. And all the while he maintained he was just a normal, regular hard-working American. Springsteen has continually worn his political credentials on his sleeve – supporting the British Miners’ strike in the 80s, playing benefits shows wherever possible, and speaking out against the Reagan administration. In spite of this, Reagan tried to co-opt Springsteen’s Born in the USA as a Republican party anthem, notwithstanding that the song is an ironic and highly critical look at the state of the post Vietnam nation. In this wide-ranging, myth-shattering appraisal of Springsteen’s life and music, Jim Cullen analyses the cultural impact and demonstrates why Springsteen is heir to John Steinbeck, Walt Whitman and Mark Twain.
