Bruce Springsteen – Born In The U.S.A.

“Born in the U.S.A.” is a 1984 song written and performed by Bruce Springsteen, and released on the album of the same name. One of Springsteen’s best-known singles, Rolling Stone ranked the song 275th on their list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”, and in 2001, the RIAA’s Songs of the Century placed the song 59th (out of 365). The song addresses the harmful effects of the Vietnam War on Americans and the treatment of Vietnam veterans upon their return home. It is an ironic retort to the indifference and hostility with which Vietnam veterans were met.
