'Born In The U.S.A.' turns 30

Born In The U.S.A. celebrates its 30th anniversary on June 4.

Bruce Springsteen's most commercially successful album was released on June 4, 1984. It's hard to believe that we've been listening to these 12 songs for 30 years and yet sometimes they seem so new when we find ourselves applying the lyrics to yet another new point in our life that they seem to fit perfectly.

Read my comprehensive article about the album's release and what critics said at the time here on the website of The Friends of the Bruce Springsteen Special Collection, which houses all the 30-year-old articles I researched.
