Superchunk – “Born To Run” (Bruce Springsteen Cover)

Bruce Springsteen’s Born To Run is 40 years old today, and we’re all celebrating the best way we know how. In Stereogum’s case, we ran a thoughtful essay about the album’s impact. Superchunk frontman Mac McCaughan, meanwhile, dredged up an old live recording of his band’s triumphant “Born To Run” cover. Some details via SoundCloud:

In 2000 Superchunk toured w And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead… and Crooked Fingers & we covered Born To Run at the end of the show w everyone onstage, incl Eric Bachmann as Clarence…i think this is from the Echo Lounge in ATL

Bachmann absolutely smashed that Clemons sax solo. Hear the whole rad bootleg below.
