    During a new interview with comedian Marc Maron on the WTF podcast, Bruce Springsteen questioned President-elect Donald Trump’s basic “competency” three weeks before he’s set to take the oath of office. “I’ve felt disgust before, but never the kind of fear that you feel now,” Springsteen said. “It’s as simple as the fear of, is someone simply competent enough to do this particular job? Do they simply have the pure competence to be put in the position of such responsibility?” The rocker, who campaigned for Hillary Clinton, went on to express his concerns that Trump’s campaign unleashed “bigotry, racism, intolerance”...

    Rock legend Bruce Springsteen has described Donald Trump as an embarrassment to the United States, saying the Republican presidential candidate is a demagogue with simple solutions. Springsteen, who has dramatized the plight of working-class Americans in his music, said he understands how Trump could seem “compelling” to people who are economically insecure. “The absurdity is beyond cartoon-like. But he's gotten close enough (to the White House) so it can make you nervous,” he told Skavlan, a talk show in Norway and Sweden, during an interview released Friday.

    The reaction has been swift. The singer Bryan Adams canceled his concert in Mississippi in protest against what he called an “anti-L.G.B.T.” law, and the actress Sharon Stone decided not to film a movie there. In North Carolina, Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr, Pearl Jam and Ani DiFranco have canceled shows in response to a law regulating transgender bathroom access. While the celebrity response is drawing considerable attention, the travel industry in each state is more concerned about lower-profile visitors: the everyday tourists who have already begun canceling trips or planning vacations elsewhere. Both states have been hit by hotel cancellations...

    Following his cancellation of a concert in North Carolina over a law that prohibits transgender people from using bathrooms other than their biological sex, Bruce Springsteen declared that South Carolina will be next on his "s**t list" if Governor Nikki Haley insists on using the "archaic" way of identifying herself as Indian. "I mean, it's 2016, who still says they're Indian? This isn't 19th century America, we recognize these people are actually Native Americans," said Springsteen, adding "if Governor Haley wants to disrespect herself that's her business, but I will not play another concert in South Carolina as long as...

    When Bruce Springsteen cancelled his concert in North Carolina this month because of politics, I thought “what a jerk.” He wanted to send a message, and he wasn’t concerned that his cancellation affected far more people than the issue he claimed to be protesting. It was about a new law in the state which restricted men’s bathrooms to males, and women’s bathrooms to females. My god, the nerve of those Carolinians! The “Boss,” or some PR flake of his, explained: “To my mind, it’s an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the...

Bruce Springsteen fans in Greensboro, North Carolina, won't be dancing in the dark anytime soon, because The Boss canceled an upcoming concert. And you can blame the governor and state lawmakers. Springsteen moved the concert in protest of the state's so-called "bathroom" law, which, among other things, forces transgender people to use the restroom associated with the gender on their birth certificates, not their gender identity. Springsteen released a statement saying, "Right now, there are many groups, businesses, and individuals in North Carolina working to oppose and...

When political candidates play Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A." at their campaign rallies, you can usually assume they've never listened to the lyrics. But Donald Trump's apparent decision to add the 1984 tune his warm-up music bespeaks a certain political savvy.

    LA Weekly ^ | July 15, 2014 | Jonny Whiteside
    While rock 'n' roll is necessarily classified as a form of pop music, it is actually an idiom whose radical, destructive primitivism established a new type of socio-cultural disorder. It's about rejection of the status quo and celebration of the dis-imprisonment it instills. Always exploited for profit, rock's unmanageable aspects have been steadily diluted by a sinister, commercially driven course of revisionist myth-making. There is no acceptable role in the marketplace for radicals like Charlie Feathers, Poly Styrene, Lux Interior or Roky Erickson, but there's always room for the homogeneous, money-hungry, play-it-safe phonies on this list. These douchebags all have...

    <p>Republicans spend too much time complaining about liberals boycotting the advertisers on conservatives’ shows and not enough time doing the same thing to the Left. If movie stars trash conservatives, we should be very publicly telling people we're not going to their films and we should take credit if they bomb. If a corporate CEO embraces liberalism, don't buy that company’s products and tell the world why you're doing it. Let him explain to his board of directors why standing up for gay marriage or abortion was worth losing millions of dollars. Seventy percent of the country is Christian, roughly half the country supports the Republican Party and forty percent of Americans are conservative. There are a lot of businesses, artists and musicians who simply cannot survive without the support of people like us. The only reason they dare to trash us or publicly support people who hate our guts is because we all too often shrug our shoulders and then willingly hand over our money to people who despise us.</p>

It’s a song Springsteen wrote years ago and, according to music lore, was his response to the 1999 shooting death of unarmed West African immigrant Amadou Diallo. Diallo was killed by a group of then-New York City police officers. He was shot 41 times, according to a police report. Trayvon, 17, was shot and killed on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fl. by George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old insurance underwriter and college...

    Springsteen's Homage to Pete Seeger By Tom Moon World Cafe, April 25, 2006 - On the new collection We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions, Bruce Springsteen honors the folk music tradition that has inspired many of his own compositions over the years. All the tracks on the new album are standards closely associated with folk icon Pete Seeger. Springsteen assembled large ensemble of acoustic musicians to flavor the proceedings with everything from accordion to tuba. Rock critic Tom Moon talks with host David Dye about why he reacted so strongly and positively towards this latest offering by The Boss.

    Bruce Springsteen now says he shouldn’t have made a deal to sell his greatest hits CD exclusively at Wal-Mart. Fans criticized The Boss because Wal-Mart has been accused of unfair labor practices. Springsteen, on the other hand, has always supported workers’ rights. “It was a mistake,” Springsteen said. “Our...

    I've been looking and I haven't heard this mentioned yet. During the Obamunist coronation ceremony lefties Pete Seeger and Bruce Springsteen were singing "This Land is your Land." To my utter shock and amazement, they actually brought out a verse that is hardly ever sung in public. This verse openly calls for the overthrow of private property. Watch from 2:42 on the video, here are the lyrics: There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me; Sign was painted, it said private property; But on the back side it didn't say nothing; That side was made for...

    It's Bruce Springsteen in utterly candid mode, discussing how Bush ruined America, and how he coped with recent tragedies of his own. But with a new president, the singer has a fresh optimism - hell, he even loves his local supermarket now

    The first song that played over the loudspeakers after Obama's first speech as president-elect in Chicago's Grant Park was Springsteen's 'The Rising.' No other singer backed Barack Obama more, and no other singer made clear his apathy for the Bush regime. Springsteen's outright opposition.........

    It was supposed to be a nice bonus for people who paid $1,500 to attend a fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) -- a ticket to the Bruce Springsteen concert Sunday at Giants Stadium. But the Lautenberg campaign canceled its order for 40 tickets yesterday after it came under review by the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, which is promoting the concert, and drew fire from Republicans.

"Like most of you, I've been following the campaign and I have now seen and heard enough to know where I stand. Senator Obama, in my view, is head and shoulders above the rest," he wrote. Many of Springsteen's rousing rock anthems and...

    Poor little Bruce Springsteen is upset because patriotic Americans object to his anti-victory music. (Drudge Report 20 September 2007). In this twerp’s political world patriotism is wishing defeat for your country. Now where did this ignoramus get his anti-American views? He got them from Brandeis-educated Jon Landau, a vicious America-hating leftist. A man who supported the communist conquest of South Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. The same loathsome creature who is working to subvert the war against al Qaeda. No wonder Springsteen supports the Soros-Heinz funded anti-American groups and Americans Coming Together. He also supports the vicious Christic Institute, the...
