"Steinbeck in leather": Bruce Springsteen - Born In The U.S.A.

Another amazing song that got co-opted by the Reagan administration who didn't realize it was a lament for American values and totally critical of war and the "American way of life". It is a really sad song, only a total bonehead would misinterpret the intent of it.
Springsteen was totally anti-lipsync (and anti MTV really), so they had to film multiple shows over multiple nights and splice it so it appeared to be from a single performance.
