Springsteen does Suicide

file this one under strange covers you'd never imagine hearing:

Bruce Springsteen doing the Suicide classic "Dream Baby Dream"

it's actually not really that strange as the Boss has long shared his love of the proto-punk/electronic pioneers. apparently Springsteen was really into the No Wave scene when he was first starting out and he's even stated that Nebraska was heavily influenced by the first Suicide record.


  1. Apparently Mute records released a 12 inch record of Springsteen's cover as part of a 70th bday celebration of Alan Vega.

  2. Alan Vega is 70?!?! Wow. He's older than the Beatles and the Stones!
